Beijing Comes to NYC’s Grand Central Terminal

The Beijing Tourism Roadshow, hosted by the Beijing Tourism Development Committee, recently occurred in the Main Concourse of Grand Central Terminal, New York City’s iconic century-old train station.

The event promoted Beijing’s new 72-hour visa-free stay policy and other tourist attractions. Cultural performance including martial arts, fan dances, and Beijing opera were staged for onlookers, bringing a little piece of Beijing, China, to New York City.

The event was largely successful, much like previous Beijing Tourism events from the past years, which have included a New Year’s countdown ceremony in New York City’s Times Square to three Chinese tenors singing at Lincoln Center, to the “Glamorous Beijing World City” Fair at Universal Studios in Los Angeles.

The US represents the largest overseas tourism market for Beijing, with its more than 700,000 tourists that visit the Chinese capital annually.
