Great Short Day Trip in Beijing

Finally I got a short break from my business in Beijing, so I thought to myself, I might as well do some sightseeing while I was in Beijing, cause sometimes you just got to give yourself a break from it all, right? That was what I did anyway!

Badaling Great Wall

I joined a private tour to see Badaling Great Wall as well as the lovely Beijing Hutong. My tour guide picked me up at my hotel and we headed out in a van for Badaling – our first stop of that day trip. It took us about an hour to get there. The crowds on the wall that day were not as large as I imagined it would be though, which I was really glad! Hopped on a cable car up the wall with my guide. The stone path was quite solid and it was really amazing to trek up and down along the snaking wall with watch towers at every turn on the wall to mark our hiking distance. It was really cool to walk the wall up-close and personal! The wall itself was definitely the highlight of my trip there, but the surrounding views as well as the fresh outdoor air and landscape made it more fun and worthwhile! It seemed I just could not stop snapping photos whenever I got my chance and I just got to capture some valuable moments on the wall! It was really amazing how much you could do while trekking on the wall! I really enjoyed a wonderful time and had lots of fun too on the wall. Those Chinese guys were very friendly and all seemed to either want to talk with me or snap some photos with me! I kind of felt like a super star myself on the wall – I guess it was all because of my good-looks and all! Haha!

Beijing Hutong

After we got off the wall, we headed back to the city. We completed our day trip with a fun Hutong tour on rickshaw. It was fun and amaizngf that I got to see the lovely Beijing-style residence myself! The daily life scenes were all over the lanes and alleyways. It was no doubt a great opportunity to get a good taste of old-time Beijing! I got to say this tour is hard to beat! Great day trip! Great memories! Just loved every minute of it!

Full Harvest Tour, Most Impressive Scenery

I have stayed in China for two weeks but have no much time explore Beijing. Last Thursday, my father booked Beijing Badaling Great Wall and Summer Palace tour for me. I liked this tour very much, because these two sections are my favorites. Really cheap price and we housed the exciting feeling waiting the coming of our tour.

Badaling Great Wall

I clearly remembered the tour guide is the same old with me. However, she is so smart that all the histories she got clearly and complete. Sitting on the bus, we were chatting and talking. Driver is local Beijing people familiar with the road and route. We arrived at the Badaling Great Wall within 1 hour. Perhaps because of Thursday, most people are busy with their work. We felt every light and free. It seemed that this elegant section was prepared for us. In Beijing spring, weather showed a little hotter and all the plants growing beside are sprout and blossoming. After appreciating the souvenirs sold along, we stepped on the stages. My father took pictures with every corner, trees far distance, grey bricks and the wall buildings on the foot. Walking along, I did not know how to express my exciting feeling. I wanted to give my hug with this section but failed. It is truly like a giant dragon stretching to the far distance, vigorous and breathing, accompanied by the plants and elegant mountains surrounded. After half an hour, I started to feel tired. Sitting on the ground for a short relax. The watchtower is not far from me where there are many wild grasses growing on. Some young people jumped up and down from the window. It is too dangerous, I want to say.

Badaling Great Wall

After climbing at the half journey, I still could hear the shouting from the venders. Perhaps, only they could add some live atmosphere to this lonely wall building. Higher we climbed, more elegant this building showed. Touching the bricks built on, it seemed that I have gone back to Chinese ancient times, mysterious and quiet. All the things reflected clear and marked for me. For this important scenic spot, there are toilets and garbage boxes. Littering everywhere should be forbidden. On the whole journey, I saw much and experienced much, learnt much. After stepping on the top, to my surprised the overview scenery will be so charming. All the boring things soon disappeared!

Badaling Great Wall deserved the high fame praised by the public. It is truly a world wonder!

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!
