The scenery of beautiful Yanqing is cantabile, poetic and picturesque in all four seasons. Mountain flowers are in full bloom in spring, mountains are green with cool water in summer, serried woods are red in autumn and white snow gleams in winter. Due to the special geographic position, Yanqing is known as the "Summer Resort", and embraces ice and snow landscape of unique charm in winter. "Look at the landscape of northern China. The vast frozen land is covered with ice. And the snow flits far-flung in the sky. On both sides of the Great Wall, the boundless land is clad in white. The Yellow River's swift current is stilled from end to end. The mountains dance like silver snakes, and the highlands slither like huge wax elephants, trying to match the sky in height. On a fine day, the land, clad in white, adorned in red, grows more enchanting." "Snow-On the Pattern of Qinyuanchun" by Mao Zedong enjoys great popularity and becomes the best footnote of Yanqing's special winter scenery.

Mountain flowers are in full bloom in warm spring. In spring, Yanqing is surrounded by green mountains and blue rivers. With warm colors, the land is full of vigor. Mountain flowers gradually show up on mountains and buds secretly appear on the trees. Yanqing is an ideal place for enjoying flowers in a spring outing and a paradise for having a spring tour. Bike riding, outdoor development activities and hiking are extremely wonderful. It's also a great joy to watch birds on wetland, farm in the fields, pick in the greenhouse and experience folk customs.
