5 Days Memorable Excursion to the Capital of China

Beijing is my first destination city choice since I decided visit China last month. My family and I, we were so happy after joined the tour. For me, Beijing is a nice, well organized, and very coordinated city. Not as bad as from my imagination. The city is also very modern with advanced facilities and transportation system. That was nice for me to finally come to China.

Tiananmen Tower

Arrived at Beijing, the tour agency staff picked us up at the airport then transferred us to the hotel. Then we began our trip on the second day. I think the itinerary was good, not too rushed either. On the second day, we did visit Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven. The third day, we could visit Great Wall and Ming Tombs, both destinations are located outside Beijing downtown, in the suburb area near from the town. And the fourth day, we could visit Summer Palace and Hutong. On the last day, staff picked us up from the hotel then transfer to the airport, back to Chicago.

During our 3 days full tour, each day we could visit two attractions were so ideal schedule. We got enough time to explore by our own, took some photos as well as heard the guide explanation in each important spots during the tour. Once again, not too rushed and all organized well. Among several impressive attractions around or in Beijing, besides Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace, Hutong had given me different impression about the city.

Hutong Rickshaw

Hutong which known as the old residence areas of traditional local people was where now foreigners could learn culture and habits of Beijing people. Hutong become famous for its narrow alleys. Lots of alley we could explore by took the rickshaw ride or pedicab, two people in one pedicab. Along the way, we could take some photos anywhere we want. We did see lots of interesting activities of the local as well as several old buildings that still used till now. The rickshaw ride is an interesting and fun ride, fresh experience for us, the whole family. For about 2 hours we roamed around the old local alleys, by walk plus took traditional Chinese rickshaw.

Not only in Hutong, our visit to others historical sites around Beijing was memorable and great. Thank you for the service and all the efforts which made our trip incredible!
