Just Gone Back to Ancient China

Climbing the Great Wall is always my dream these years. My father and grandfather all liked Chinese culture very much. Just on business in Beijing, I booked this bus tour to challenge Badaling Great Wall. The price is cheaper than I expect.

Summer Palace
On the departure day, I prepared enough waiting for the bus. For several minutes, I saw a bus and met the tour guide. On the bus, there are tourists from different countries and soon we became friends and talked about the attractions we would travel. First destination is Summer Palace. I did not have complete idea about this attraction. Once arrived at this large scale garden, I felt its power. Truly impressive! Tour guide led us and ordered us follow her. She explained this garden was built for the Dowager Cixi for getting rid of the summer heat. It is a large scale royal palace for entertaining and recreation. How luxury it is! Large water area is called Kunming Lake. Many young couple boated on the lake leisurely. I want to do so! After that, we walked further. Each corner was designed very perfect. All the pavilions are carved with lifelike patterns.


It is always said Badaling Great Wall is the most famous and magnificent. I finally got it. It is deserved all the high fame. To be lucky that the day we adventured the section is not crowded as the tour guide said. Together with my friends, we carried our food and drinks starting the climbing journey. Hiking journey is very terrific that we saw the local sceneries and the ancient buildings. To our surprise is that the Great Wall is decorated with handrails in case of slipping over. In the beginning, we did not feel any tired. But in the latter sections, all my muscle was stiffness. Under the help of my friend, I passed through the steep steps. Standing on the wall, appreciating the sceneries far away, it is really a kind of proud feeling. Some tourists took the cable car arriving at the top. I thought climbing is more terrific.

Much thanks to the tour guide. She gave us much help on the whole visiting journey. It will be the lifetime experience staying in China!

Incredible Half Day Hiking

Been in Beijing for a couple of days with my brother, we both enjoyed visiting the historic city. We had so much fun and eye-opening experiences over those days. There were so many fun things to fill every day while we were there. The palace, garden, park, shopping and gourmet food, it seemed the whole city was like a treasure-trove waiting us to explore. We both loved it there and really enjoyed every minute of our vacation down there.

Badaling Great Wall

One of the most unforgettable things we did is the hike along the wall we did at Badaling for half day. The day before we went there, our guide Jane advised us to make an early start for the half-day trip, so we got up very early and had a quick breakfast too. Then we waited for Jane to show up and soon she picked us up and we all got on a car and hit the road for Badaling. The ride was quick and soon we arrived at the foothill near the wall. Once we jumped off the car, Jane led us toward a cable car station to grab a ride up the wall instead of walk up the wall on foot. The ride was great and up in the air, we got a clear view of the snaking wall. It was as incredible as it could be and we both felt so excited to finally get to see the wall. The minute we were landed on the wall, we started to hike along the wall with Jane. In the meanwhile, Jane told us a lot about the history of the wall and we also took time to snap some photos and take in the surrounding views.

The wall itself is as impressive as it could be and very awe-inspiring too. Everything seemed so perfect that day - the weather was pleasant, lovely tour guide with a good sense of humor. At first, it was very easy to hike through the stone path, but after over an hour of walk on the wall, we both felt tired and could not continue. So we stopped to get some rest and catch breath. The experience on the wall was really amazing and we both felt this is what we have been looking for on our trip to Beijing - the adventure, incredible hike and blood-pumping climbs. Later, it was time to get down, we also grabbed a fun slide down the wall and it was fun too.

Overall, the half-day hike we did is highlight of our trip to Beijing.

Half Day Tour, Full of Pleasure

Just come to Beijing for business, I stayed in Beijing one day. For the half day free time, I enjoyed the Badaling Great Wall. The tour is very responsible leading me feel very happy. Booking this tour is the suggestion of my friend who have visited before. By the rare chance to Beijing, it is a must to get close to the world wonder.

Badaling Great Wall

I got up early and waited my tour guide. She told me the unique magnificence of Badaling Great Wall. I got on the car and started our journey. On the way, tour guide and I, we talked from Chinese ancient history to the background of Chinese Great Wall, from the past to the modern faster economy. In many topics, we held same ideas. About 1.5 hour, we arrived at Badaling. Weather on the day is very climate, shining everything. Temperature is little cooler. What I liked best is the environment. Located in the Beijing suburb area, Badaling Great Wall is just like a solitary guard protecting everything.

Just sanding at the foot, I can taste its brave and original atmosphere. Exciting feeling started to surround me in the beginning. I took out my preparation and climbed to the 'history teller'. First time come to visit Great Wall, I did not know there would be vendors here. They shouted and sold various souvenirs. I did not feel any tiredness just roaming in the noisy world. After ten minutes, I came to the ground where the venders are less. Oh, so terrific! I see the breathtaking scenery far away. Even the layout of the Great Wall far away appeared to me with dragon-style appearance. I admire the sceneries very much. If carefully appreciated, some wild flowers can be found in the wall corners. The watchtowers show very similar as the book said. Standing inside, I felt the feeling and war scene of ancient China. Journey is becoming closer and closer, but I felt more and more tired. At last, each step needs my all effort. I supported the wall with my hand finishing the remaining distance. Breath became very hard.

I counted the steps and encouraged myself. Yes, finally I was the hero finishing the whole journey. Mysterious exciting feeling cannot be expressed by any words!
