The conference venue for the 22nd APEC meeting opened to tourists on Friday, the Beijing News reported.

Situated at the foot of Yanshan Mountain in the city's northern suburb, the venue will develop into a premier international venue for conferences of all sizes.

The Yanqi Lake scenic site has been designed to reflect "real China" and won public acclaim during the high-profile APEC meeting.

The Yanqi Lake International Convention Center, covering an area of 8,277 square meters and the most eye-catching building in the area, will be turned into a comprehensive hi-tech venue for multi-level international conventions and exhibitions. It will also serve as a holiday resort featuring eco-tourism.

Travel agencies have been promoting a one-day tour of Yanqi Lake, which may cost about 150 yuan (S$30.60), said the Beijing Legal Times.
