Itinerary of My 3 Day Vacation in Beijing

I am very happy that I have a wonderful trip in Beijing. During the 3 day package tour, we visited the world famous attractions, tasted traditional Chinese food and had learnt more about the history of this old city.

Temple of Heaven

Day 1: Arrived at Beijing International Airport, so large, so elegant with advanced facilities and outstanding signposts, I felt comfortable. A few minutes later, we saw the tour guide holding a welcome sign with my name on it and then transferred us to our hotel - Beijing Wangfujing Da Wan Hotel. On the way, the tour guide made a brief introduction of modern Beijing. Our hotel is located in Wangfujing Street. That's wonderful. During the spare time I could enjoy the shopping time there. After a short rest, in the afternoon we traveled to our first destination – Temple of Heaven. The temple was the place where the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties worshipped heaven and prayed for good harvests. Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest is the main building built in Yongle reign. After the tour to Temple of Heaven, we enjoy the Mongolian Hot Pot and Kongfu show in the evening. The excellent Shaolin Kungfu did impressive.

Forbidden City

Day 2: This is a full day traveling to the representative attractions in the city downtown. From 8:00 am, we began to visit Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Standing on the square, the Tower with red color is outstanding with the photo of Chairman Mao hanging in the middle of the top. Forbidden City is so large. With limit time, we just visited a small part of it. The tour guide said that each brick in the palaces is carefully selected. How magnificent it is! In the afternoon we visited the Summer Palace where I like best. The charming garden scenery makes us feel as if we were in the xanadu. We took a lot of beautiful pictures with sweet flowers.

Great Wall

Day 3: This is the last travel day in Beijing. In the early morning we went to see the famous Great Wall. A little bit far from downtown, there are not so crowed. The weather is perfect with blue skies and gentle breeze. In order to have a bird's eye view and to save energy, we took the cable car. Lying with the trend of the mountains, the Great Wall is like a dragon ready for flying. Ming Tombs is our last destination. It is the largest clusters of imperial cemeteries in China. If not personally see, I cannot imagine the tombs could build with so large scale and luxury.

Time flies. This 3 day tour in Beijing is really impressive that I will never forget.

My 4 Days Trip in Beiijing

We arrived in Beijing in the late afternoon and saw the tour guide holding an outstanding welcome sign with my name on it. On the way to our hotel, the tour guide make a short explain for the tour agenda and the introduction of Beijing. I would like to say that I am very satisfied with the hotel. It is located in the heart of the golden area of Beijing, surrounded by major business centers, tourist attractions and the Embassy area. In the evening, walking along the streets around, we got a charming feeling of the night scenery in Beijing.

Nine Dragon Wall in Forbidden City

In the early morning of the second day, the tour guide picked us up in the hotel and began our tour around the city downtown: Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and Summer Palace. I was looking forward to visit Forbidden City for a long time. Now the dream came true. It is so huge and all the palaces are decorated with the most precious materials. And the dragon is the main pattern. Dragon in the Forbidden City, not only soar in the lofty and solemn halls but also throughout the Royal living environment, since all kinds of objects of clothing, furniture, clocks, paper room utensils, cups and saucers, utensils and even ceremonial weapons, everywhere dance with all kinds of dragons. It is the dragon world.

Another impressive attraction is the Badaling Great Wall. In the third travel day, we enjoyed the view of this world wonder. So crowed… the steep steps lead to the top of it is full of people. Climbing to the top I was nearly drenched although the weather is not hot. Having a deep breath, enjoying the view of mountains far away, I with open arms embrace the nature. How cool!

At last I would like to say thank you to our tour guide. He is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. And when we had trouble finding the bus in the parking lots he would blow the horn to get our attention. I really enjoy this 4 days trip in Beijing!

 

5 Day Beijing Bus Tour Package

My wife and I had a honeymoon tour in Beijing. My friends asked me why not choosing a romantic city, I answered Beijing is the romantic city combined the modern into vintage. Different with Pairs, Beijing has strong history and culture atmosphere, it is the real romantic city. We booked the local Beijing courtyard hotel. Hearing of we are new couple, the boss prepared a guestroom like the honeymoon room for us specially. Because of the different languages, we decided to book a tour online to save our time for finding places. So we find this BLS, a Beijing China tour operator, and booked a bus tour package. An in-depth Beijing tour for 5 days is our dream for long terms.

Overlooking Badaling Great Wall

These most famous attractions of Beijing beyond my mind, they are so hot for tourists in Beijing. May be this time is suited for tourist, majority of spots crowded with people. But we liked this kind of trip with various tourists from all over the world. For example, Badaling Great Wall was so crowded that we hard to climb to the top, so we chosen to take cable car to enjoy the whole view of this world wonder. My wife and I were always discussing how they built this huge project without any modern facilities. The tour guide told us this huge construction was built just depended on the labors in ancient China. We were shocked by the strong strands of determination and persistence of ancient Chinese people. At same time, we were told a moving story about the Great Wall. As well as Badaling Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven are also worthy this visit if you stay in Beijing.

Rickshaws in Hutong

Besides these, Beijing hutongs attracted me lots. The different hutogns have different stories. In Beijing center, these hutongs show the real life of Beijingers. Walking in them, we found various former residences of celebrities, famous historical sites, etc. They are the witness of ordinary life from ancient time to now. Only existed in China, panda was the other aim to Beijing. According to tour guide, the base of breeding pandas is located in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. If we have time in Chin again, we must visit the base to approach these lovely animals closely.

Last, the service offered by this Beijing China travel agency was satisfied. Next to China, I would choose this company to book route online.
