Highlight of My 2 Days Beijing Travel

For the last couple days I really had a fabulous holiday in Beijing! It was fun and incredible! Absolutely an essential Chinese experience for me! I got a chance to take in a whole bunch of historic sites in the ancient city. Here are two highlights I loved the most!

Summer Palace

First highlight of my Beijing experience was the Summer Palace. Compared with the Forbidden City, I loved the Summer Palace more! The retreat itself is located in a vast park area, surrounded by artificial lake and man-made hill. The garden area itself was as beautiful as it could be! There were a bunch of paddle boats and lotus flowers on the lake, and the palaces and halls were in good shape. However, my experience over there was almost ruined by the huge crowd. From personal experience, never ever go there during the national holiday when apparently everyone else in China decide it is a good time to visit the Summer Palace too. Despite being surrounded by crowds, I still managed to take my time to take in the sights in the park. I also went to climb the huge man-made hill where a couple of the ancient buildings were built. I first hiked up a paved path, and then started to climb the mountain through the forest, and soon I stood on the top of the hill. The sweeping view and the Buddhist buildings definitely made it worth the climb. Overall it was an amazing experience in the park!

Badaling Great Wall

Highlight of my next day trip was the trek on the Great Wall at Badaling section. The wall itself was very impressive and the crowd was huge too on the wall! I had an incredible yet difficult trek on the wall as I was surrounded by other travelers. However, I did get a great view of the wall and took my time to enjoy the refreshing outdoors over there! It was really a fascinating sight with the well restored wall undulating over rugged mountains as far as the eye could see! Hiking through the whole section of the wall was quite a challenge for me yet the sights and outdoors made it all worthwhile. There were incredible picture opportunities at every bend on the wall as well! Overall, the GREAT wall experience absolutely completed my trip down to Beijing and I really enjoyed every minute of it!
