Best Day I Had In Beijing

This summer I had a business trip to Beijing and got a day-break from work one day. So I decided to stretch my legs for a bit. The Great Wall popped up in my head and under the recommendation of my tour escort, I decided to see the wall at Mutianyu section.

Mutianyu Great Wall

We started the tour at about 8:00am on a car ride for our first stop - Mutinayu. The car ride was fun and took us less than two hours to get there. We took a chair lift up the wall and from up above I got a great sight of the snaking wall surrounded by lush forest and stretching as far as the eye can see. And it was also incredible to see the green colors all over the place. The wall itself was quite impressive and it was well restored as far as I could tell. Once I landed on the wall, I started walking along with my tour guide. I hardly run into anyone out there and it felt like I got the whole wall all to myself and I did take my time on the wall, taking in views and enjoying the blood-pumping climbs at some point. There seemed to be a watch tower every few hundred meters or so, and there were some that I could climb up, which was really awesome. It was a sunny day and the air was kind of crispy on top of the mountain - all made it perfect for a hike on the wall!

When it was time to get down I grabbed the toboggan slide which was definitely highlight of my visit to the wall. I weaved my way down the side of the mountain on the slide, through the forest, which was really exciting and fun.

After our lunch break, we headed for our next stop - Chunhuiyuan Hot Spring Resort. I had an amazing spa treatment down there and really relaxed myself with a foot massage! I got to say, the treatments I had over there were just what I really needed after hours of hiking on the Great Wall. It seemed all my tiredness got sucked away after the treatments! I really enjoyed every minute of it! Overall, I really had a full day and it was the best I spent in Beijing!
