What a Fun-filled Vacation!

Really spent a couple of fun-filled days in Beijing with my kids and husband. We prepared our vacation in Beijing for quite a long time and the whole vacation went just like we anticipated. We booked the private tour online and got picked up at the airport right on time. We were taken to see a bunch of historic sites over those days.

Forbidden City

The most impressive sight for me and my husband is no doubt the imperial palace on our first-day trip but our kids did not like it like we did. They all fund it boring and very crowded out there. What can I say? They are just too young for history, I guess. The palace itself is huge and really impressive and there were great photo opportunities everywhere inside the palace. Our guide kept filling us the history about the palace, which made it more fun and enjoyable on our tour of the museum. The palace and hall inside the museum were exquisitely decorated and from what I gathered the palace was as luxury as it could be back in the day. Anyway, our visit to the palace museum is definitely an essential Chinese experience! Our rest of the day spent visiting Hutong areas near the Drum Tower. It was a fun experience too. In the evening our guide also took us to watch a night Kungfu show. And our kids just loved it! So did we. We both were glad they found something to entertain themselves!

Badaling Great Wall

On the next day, we first went outside the city proper to see the Great Wall. We enjoyed a walk on the wall with our kids and had to keep a tight reign on them all the time as all they wanted to do on the wall was running around chasing each other. It was a fine day and the weather was very pleasant for the walk. It was really a great experience to get away from the city noises for a while and explore the wall. We all enjoyed a great time on the wall and had fun as well. In the afternoon, we completed our day trip with a visit to the Lama Temple. Boring too for our kids but me and my husband like it over there. It was quiet and full of Buddhist atmosphere.

On our third day in Beijing, there was nothing special and all we did was visited some gardens. Overall, our vacation in Beijing was wonderful!
