Amazing Tour in Beijing with My Dad

Last week, me and my dad spent two full days to explore the Great Wall in Beijing. It was fun and amazing! We both enjoyed a great time over there and had lots of fun as well! Those sections of the Great Wall we visited are all very complete and well restored, making them very easy to climb up and get off. The trip was really a great chance for us to relax and have fun while we were in Beijing and to hike on the Great Wall was to die for!

Juyongguan Great Wall

We had never been to Beijing before, so we joined the tour group – really glad we did that or we would not have had so much fun! Our tour guide was a lovely Chinese girl who was very fantastic and knew her way around the city very well. I could tell she was an enthusiastic travel herself after talking with her for just a few minutes. While trekking on the wall, she told us plenty of funny and interesting stories about the Great Wall, which made our hiking along the wall more fun. As those sections of the wall were all very well restored and equipped, it was kind of easy to walk along, at least it was what I thought in the beginning, but as it turned out, if you trekked for hours, it was not as easy as it seemed. My ankles got numbed, my feet hurt and sweat kept coming down my face after two hours of walking.

However, it was paid off by the splendid sights while we were hiking along – with the snaking wall meandering into the horizon, the never ending countryside, the fresh outdoor air – all made our trekking worthwhile! The hiking aside, we also got a chance to see plenty of impressive structures on the Great Wall. The watch tower was the highlight of the Great Wall. There was this unique tower group located at Mutianyu section, where three watch towers were standing together – could not be found at any other sections. It was quite a sight! Juyongguan was as wonderful as it could be too! The pass city was just like a city itself, exquisitely designed and delicately built. It was fun to walk around the city pass, kind of felt like traveling back in time, which was really amazing!

Overall, it was a lifetime experience and fun trip to the Great Wall!
