If you're planning to head to China for the Beijing Olympics, these videos will give you -- and all other tourists -- a taste of what to expect.

The Beijing Welcomes You video series is beautifully done. The version above includes subtitled English to supplement the vivid imagery in the music videos.

Surely many people who thought Mandarin Chinese wasn't a beautiful language before may change their minds after watching this video.

Although the promotional video is in Chinese, it's a stunning depiction of the wondrous tourist attractions available in Beijing. It includes shots of the world-class, awe-inspiring architecture that's been erected in Beijing, including the Bird's Nest Olympic stadium.

Even if you don't understand Chinese, this official video clip can be enjoyed by anyone interested in China's culture.
