    Naveed, "Peking" and "Beijing" are one of the same, the former being romanized using the Wade-Giles system and the latter with the Pinyin system. They both phonetically translate the Chinese name for the city, 北京, literally translating to "The Northern Capital" (as opposed to Nanking/Nanjing, 南京, "The Southern Capital").
