About Tongzhou District, Beijing
Unique strategic advantage in location
Tongzhou District, spans 906 sq. km. and home to around 10.5 million residents, is in southeastern Beijing.

Rich historical and cultural heritage
The more than 2,200 years' history of this city started in the early Western Han Dynasty and historical architectural structures, such as the Dipamkara Pagoda and Bali Bridge, together bear witness to the vicissitudes this two-millennia old city has endured. It was the starting point of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal and downstream were imperial docks where vessels stopped and cultures and resources were exchanged and memories were treasured. In this new era, the General Secretary of the Communist Party cited the valuable heritage of the Grand Canal handed down to us by our ancestors, its culture flowing through that should be carefully preserved, appreciated and passed on to following generations. And, thanks to efforts to build the Grand Canal Cultural Belt, the "Canal and Four Cities" (The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal, Lu County Old City, Tongzhou Old City, Zhangjiawan Old Town and Huozhou Old City) are returning to their former glory.

Effective internal and external transportation networks
The complex railway network of Beijing comprises more than 10 metro lines including the Batong Line, M6 Line and Yizhuang Line of the Beijing Metro, and also the planned S6 Line, M7 Line and M17 Line. As for the highway network, it includes expressways, including the Beijing-Harbin, Beijing-Shanghai, Beijing-Tianjin and Beijing-Qinhuangdao highways, enabling a fast convenient connection with surrounding regions.

There are 13 rivers, big and small, in Tongzhou, with an aquatic area of about 9% of the total area of the district. The city has a green coverage rate of 58.2% and forest coverage rate of 28.4%. The attractive amalgamation of rivers, forests, green fields and lakes paints a wonderful picture of blue and green, a splendid ecological landscape naturally fresh and bright.

Modern comprehensive high quality public services
