Beijing Post Office
These days there is little reason to go to the post office anymore – sadly, the written letter is dead. Besides collecting stamps there now is another reason to visit. In fact there are lots of Post offices around Beijing and they can offer you many other helps except letters. Now there is something about the kinds and services of the post offices of Beijing.
Firstly, the Beijing General Post Office.
The headquarters of the Beijing General Post Office is located on the east side of Tiananmen Square. It provides more comprehensive services than do post offices in Western cities, handling mail, telegrams, long-distance telephone calls, and the distribution of newspapers and magazines. There are more than 350 branch offices and stations in the city and the suburbs, and the General Post Office.

Since it started to transact the Western Union business from 1998, it has accumulated abundant service experience and can provide most convenient and efficient Western Union businesses to its clients.
Thirdly, Jianguomen Post Office.
It is a branch of Beijing International Post Office, is adjacent to Central Business District (CBD) on its eastern side, and neighboring to the embassy district on its north side. The unique geographic location stimulates the subsequent birth of a series of feature business. In the long-term development course, the three business sections led by “post, finance and gift” have headed to the “expressway” that rapidly develops.

Furthermore, the operation of visa express that Jianguomen Post Office subsequently set in America, Germany and Canada embassies develops strongly, yet scores the extraordinary significance of a milestone in the history of China ‘s postal development. Thus, it can be described to be a brand business with giant potential.
