Busy Day Trip to New Landmarks of Beijing!

Beijing is not only famous for its historical places, but also popular for the successful of development for the city. A lot of new landmarks in Beijing which also has significant function in new history of China were built. With this one day private tour we explored and knew better about those landmarks history one by one. Our guide picked us up right in front of our hotel on the day tour, she greeted us friendly and nice.

National Grand Theater

We were really lucky because we could get such an informative and good guide. First destination in this tour is National Grand Theater or also called The Egg. Located near from Tiananmen Square, the Egg Theater is a national opera house in Beijing where is a home for many performance halls for music, theater, opera etc. The shape of the building is really unique and authentic, I could not find it in my home country. Other interesting buildings which also have unique shapes are China Millennium Monument and the CCTV Tower. We did have a chance to visit it with this tour. Our guide also described to us the functions and why the buildings were built.

Bird's Nest in Olympic Park

Oh, and two important buildings that I never forget is the Bird Nest and Water Cube Stadium. Both are the best and great buildings, important venues for Beijing 2008 Olympic. Not only has advanced facilities inside, both buildings were also located in the huge complex where also very clean and well maintained. Saw both stadiums was like a reminder from how success the Olympic being held at past. Sadly, because of the limited time, we could not enter to see the inner structures of the stadiums.

Night View of Wangfujing Snack Street

More than that, we also explored several business area in Beijing including Beijing Financial Street, Xidan Commercial Street (famous shopping district in Beijing), and Wangfujing Street (largest pedestrian street). Wangfujing Street was our last destination on that day. And because of our hotel is located near from the street, we decided to extend our trip in Wangfujing. Spent the night there and explore the night snack street was an interesting experience. During my one week vacation in Beijing, we had visited the street for about three times. Never bored roam around it, shopping or just walking enjoy the atmosphere at night. Nice!
