Incredible Chinese Experience

Wow Beijing is incredible!! The last few days I spent in Beijing have been my best travel experience actually. I even got a chance to hike the Great Wall - one of the seven ancient wonders of the world!!!! I still cannot what I did that day when I was trekking on the wall.

Badaling Great Wall

The wall is nothing like what I have seen on TV or travel magazines! The Great Wall of China is just way spectacular once you have been there and seen it. Photos, no matter how good they are, seem to do it little justice. There are actually dozens of sections of the wall that I could walk, but opted for the most visited Badaling because I only had a short stay in Beijing. The section of the wall is too touristy and well restored, making it perfect for an outdoor trek destination, however, the crowd made it less enjoyable. But it was packed for a very good reason. The sight of the wall was simply overwhelming for a first time visitor like me! My guide told me that the section of the wall is the most intact, and had been restored a lot in many parts. With a walk on the wall, I got to see it snake for miles over huge mountains! The sight of it totally took my breath away. I really enjoyed my trek down there and had fun as well!

Summer Palace

After we got back to town in the afternoon we had a lunch and moved on to visit the Summer Palace, another favorite of mine. The imperial garden is really huge and used to the favorite retreat for the Emperor and Empress during the Ming and Qing dynasties. While walking around the compound, the garden was filled with pagodas and temples scattered along the Kunming Lake. I also climbed up the Longevity hill to see the Buddhist Temple of the Sea of Wisdom and get a sweeping view of the whole garden. The marble steps made it so much fun on the trek down the hill! I spent about 2 hour walking all around the garden and really enjoyed myself over there. Gorgeous buildings and views were at every bend in the garden, as well as great picture opportunities! Unlike the time I spent on the wall, my visit to the garden was more relaxing and enjoyable. I just loved it over there!

Overall, it was a great day trip I had in Beijing!
