My Sightseeing in Beijing

I had a short layover in Beijing last week. Then I did some sightseeing over there. I really had a great time that day with visit to a couple of sights.

Changling in Ming Tombs

My tour guide picked me up from the hotel and we hopped on the bus out the city proper. Our first stop was the Ming Tombs, which was an enormous tomb group located outside Beijing. It only took half an hour to get there. The minute the bus stopped at the destination, we jumped off the bus and headed for the entrance of the site. Our tour guide took care of the entrance tickets for us and then we all went with him inside the site. Upon entering the scenic area, everything was very Chinese style, with the archway and other structures before us. We took dozens of pictures over there including a group photo. Later we were led into the largest tomb Changling. There were plenty of exhibits displayed on site, which did not make it less creepier. I bet the guys buried there were really pissed off an awful lot. Anyway, our visit to the tomb was short and soon we hit the road again, and this time we headed for Badaling.

Badaling Great Wall

Upon arrival at the foothill, we jumped off the bus and walked toward the entrance. And then we all grabbed cable car up the wall. Once we were landed on the wall, safe and stunned, we started to walk ahead. The scenery on the wall was just breathtaking, but the crowds were too much for us to get some alone time on the wall. From time to time, we had to make way for other guys. It seemed kind of hard to get some photos without anyone in them. Moreover, the long walk got us all tired and dead beat and rest by the tower did not make it any better. Anyway, by the time we had to call it a day, we were treated to quite a sight on the wall, as the sun slowly made its way down the mountain. It was just as amazing as it could be! Overall, it was an incredible walk I did that day!
