Highlight of My Trip to Beijing

It was an amazing and fun-filled trip I had in Beijing! I really enjoyed every minute of it, especially during our hiking on the Great Wall at Badaling section. Got to say, the outdoor hiking and trekking on the Great Wall was no doubt the highlight of my trip to Beijing! It was fun and as amazing as it could be! I got a chance to get away from the bustling city scenes and take in the outdoor landscapes as long as I wanted!

Badaling Great Wall

My Great Wall hiking was arranged on the first day of my travel in Beijing. In the morning after I had my China-style breakfast, a few steamed buns and a cup of bean milk and the like, just like what the Chinese people do when they have their everyday breakfast, my tour guide showed up right on time. I hopped on a car with him and we were all set for the day trip. The car took us to a mausoleum outside the city first. And we enjoyed some lovely walking both outside the tombs and inside one tomb. Got to say, I did not enjoy the time I had in the tomb, it was kind of creepy and scary and the exhibits displayed were just so-so. After about an hour of sightseeing in there, we were taken to a jade factory to see how the Chinese jade artifacts are made with a close look around the workshop. The factory was more fun and I really enjoyed a wonderful time walking around and enjoyed window-shopping in there!

Badaling Great Wall

After that we had a delicious lunch in a restaurant. And then we hit the road again, and this time we headed to the Great Wall for some fine trekking on the wall. It did not take long for us to get there on our ride over there. After our tour guide took care of the entrance we all hopped on a cable car up the wall. After we landed on the wall, our trekking started right away! The whole time I was quite busy snapping photos and taking in the surrounding views – all were pretty amazing and I just loved every minute of it! Definitely once in a lifetime experience! Badaling section was kind of packed with crowds that day, but as we got there earlier than the others, we did not have to nudge our way through the crowds just to get a good spot for photos.

What a fun trip! I really really want to see more of Beijing over the next few days!
