Three Mistakes during My First Visit to Beijing

Last week I made some stupid mistakes during my stay in Beijing. My travel there was really a mess, to tell you the truth.

Mistake 1: Just Some Basic Information about the Places I want to Visit
Over - confident as I was the day before I started my trip in Beijing, I merely surfed on the internet for some basic information about the places I want to visit, yet it never crossed my mind to plan ahead. How could I ever be so stupid like that! Note that just because you have been to other places all by yourself before does not mean you could handle the situation here in Beijing, for it is nothing like the other places in the world. Something unexpected might happen along the way, no matter how experienced you are! As it turned out, I got some attractions confused and everything was kind of a bummer from day one! Even if I made it to the places I intended to explore, I did not see much of what I wanted to see, because most of the time, I was either looking for my way or hit the wall.

Mistake 2: Not Book the Hotel in Advance
It was not until I landed in Beijing that I started to look for a hotel, because I did not book one in advance. I guess I was stupid enough to neglect the fact that it was peak season for traveling. At the time, Beijing was packed with tourists from home and abroad. After a series of walking and dragging my luggage around downtown Beijing, I finally landed a hotel. You could never have guessed what a relief that was! However, things just would not stop to get me down. Everything in the hotel did not live up to its price I paid. However I got no one else to blame but myself!

Mistake 3: Got Messed Up with the Transport in Beijing
Biggest mistake of all! I got messed up with the transport in Beijing! I had surfed on the internet for the exact location and got a map at hand, still I lost my way. Funny part was I spent hours looking for the spot yet it was just around the corner! Worse than that was there were a few times I was confused myself and paid higher prices for transport than the entrance tickets.

After that experience I learned and would highly recommend to others that to join a group tour if you are a first-timer in Beijing. That way you could save more money, time and energy and make the most of the trip!
