Excellent 2 Days Historical Tour in Beijing

Those 2 days I had in Beijing were fun and just incredible! I really enjoyed a good time and had fun exploring those historic sites. Everything turned out the way I expected it to be! Really worth it!

Mutianyu Great Wall

Our first stop was the Ming Tombs after I was picked up at the hotel. The ride over there was great, with a bunch of other travelers onboard talking and sharing travel stories. Upon arriving at the tomb area, we were taken to walk along a stone paved path lined with lovely statues of Chinese beasts and willows. After the leisurely stroll, we headed to an underground museum to see some exhibits in there. Got to say, walking around the underground tomb was no fun at all, as it felt kind of creepy and spooky. I tried my best to remain calm and act cool, but the second our tour guide told us it was time to move on to another destination, I rushed in front of the group. It is not like I did not enjoy a good time in there. It is just I did like it there! After our lunch break, we hit the road to Mutianyu Great Wall. The wall definitely was the highlight of my day trip that day. We took a cable car up the wall and the minute we landed on the wall, our hiking started right away! Trekking along the solid stone paved paths was all fun and worthwhile! There were great picture spots at every turn while walking along the paths. The wall structure was splendid too. I just loved hanging out by those watch towers.

Forbidden City

The next day, we were taken to visit the Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. I really got a good sense of the Chinese imperial power on that day trip. The imperial palace was packed with crowds, as well as palaces and halls. Wandering inside the complex was fun and really amazing experience. The whole complex was like a maze of palaces, halls, pavilions as well as courtyards and gates. It was easy to get lost in there without a guide. I got to say, to explore the essence of the palace was all about details - the Chinese style decorations, pompous halls, luxury living quarters - all gave me an insight into the Chinese imperial culture and history.

Overall, it was a lifetime break I had in Beijing!
