Mistakes to Avoid while Visiting Beijing

While traveling abroad is fun and all, but there are also some mistakes that first time visitors can easily make, especially when they visit Beijing for the first time. Here are two big mistakes to avoid if you do not want ruin your experience by making them in Beijing.

Mistake 1: Over-reliance on guidebooks

It is a common mistake that travelers tend to over-rely on guidebooks while traveling abroad. From my personal experience, guidebooks can help you only in a limited way and sometimes may mislead you. Beijing as a sprawling metropolis is hard to navigate and seek out the best the city has to offer. Most people would say, hiring a tour guide absolutely solve that as they tend to take care of everything for you. But what if there is no tour guide around? Then it seems the guidebooks are the only alternative you can get for your travel in Beijing. It is partly true that travelers can rely on those guidebooks written by experienced travels. However, there are plenty of details regarding traveling in Beijing that may not be included in the guidebooks. So if you rely too much on the guidebooks, instead of making a thorough plan for your visit in Beijing, then you may end up in a crumby mood as you go along with the guidebooks. Something may turn up along the way and you cannot seem to find an answer in the guidebooks. Overall, over-reliance on guidebooks should be avoided as much as possible while visiting Beijing. It is much better to book a tour in advance if you are a fresher in Beijing.

Mistake 2: Obsessive Photography

It is easy to get carried away while traveling abroad, especially when you are visiting Beijing - a city bursting out with interesting stuff to see, do and experience. So naturally, what will most travelers do? They keep their cameras rolling wherever they go. As a result, they run out of film rolls pretty soon, then when the highlight sights come along, they just could do nothing to capture them. What a shame? Taking pictures while traveling is supposed to be a way to memorize the trip or capture some rare moments, but obsessive photograph without choice is definitely not a good idea.

Overall, to avoid these above-mentioned mistakes, you will have yourself a pleasant trip to Beijing!
