World Heritage Site Seeking in Beijing

It was a fine day last Saturday, so my friend Jeff and I packed some stuff in our backpacks and set out with our tour guide Lee on a trip to see the Great Wall at Mutianyu section as well as the Temple of Heaven – two amazing world heritage sites in Beijing.

Mutianyu Great Wall

We met at our hotel and jumped on a car heading for Mutianyu. It took us about half and an hour to get there as Chinese guys were very active on weekends. On our ride over there, Lee had some small talk with us just to get acquainted. It was kind of fun to chat with Lee who was very funny and knowledgeable the whole time. We arrived at Mutianyu before we knew it while we were all engaged in talking with each other, so time must have slipped through our minds. Lee helped us to get the entrance ticket and pay for the cable car, so we all hopped on the cable car up the hill. On our ride up the hill, I got an amazing sight of the Great Wall snaking along the green-covered mountains, totally took my breath away! Once we landed on the stone path, we started trekking along right away. Mutianyu section was not as packed as the Badaling section, so we got to explore the wall at our own leisurely pace and just have fun! Great pics all over the wall, we kept snapping our cameras here and there and no doubt Lee was the busiest one in charge of taking group photos for us! It was a fantastic time we had on the wall with Lee and lots of fun too!

Temple of Heaven

After getting off the wall on a toboggan tide, Lee took us to a nearby restaurant for lunch, the food we had there was amazing! Afterwards, we headed back to town and completed our day trip with a visit to the famous Temple of Heaven. The park was pretty massive and packed with crowds, but we managed to enjoy some sightseeing at our own pace, no rush at all! The lovely and weird architecture was no doubt the highlight of the park and every detail of the hall was eye-catching. Our quick stroll through the park is certainly an essential Chinese experience! We both loved this heritage-site seeking and we surely wanted to see more of Beijing during the rest of our days in Beijing!
