A photo exhibition showing brilliant heritages and beautiful sceneries of Beijing, China's capital, was staged on Tuesday at the main hall of the Union Station of Washington DC, a main traffic hub in the US northeast corridor.

The exhibition called Charming Beijing, which will last for four days, was held by the Beijing municipal government to celebrate "China-US Tourism Year" and to introduce Beijing's tourist attractions to local people.

"China and the United States have good cooperation in developing tourism. Holding 'China-U.S. Tourism Year' gives a strong push for Chinese local governments to introduce their tourist attractions in the United States," said Wang Yue, vice chairwoman of the Beijing Municipal Commission of Tourism Development (BMCTD).

The United States has become the largest foreign tourist source for Beijing in recent years. Over 800,000 US visitors come to Beijing every year, about one fifth of the total foreign tourists received in Beijing.
