Beijing is perhaps the largest city in the whole world in terms of
population. There are many various places that are worth visiting by
tourists who travel to China.

Among the places that are popular in Beijing, there is the Bridge of
Marco Polo, one of the oldest bridges in the world. It was constructed in
1192 during the ruling period of the Qing Dynasty. Today, it welcomes
many tourists who visit China.

Consisting of 11 stone arches, the Marco Polo Bridge was the main royal
passageway between ancient Beijing and the area around central China.
With the famous 450 stone made lions, the bridge is among the most
distinctive structures in the world.
