Incredible Tour in Beijing

I cannot tell you how happy we were during the 2 days package tour in Beijing. The first day was impressive. It is a full day busy traveling to many top attractions in Beijing.

Forbidden City

In the early morning the tour guide picked us up at our hotel and then transferred to the first destination of the trip – the heart of Beijing – Tiananmen Square. I have seen it on TV many times but standing on it I still felt very excited. As the largest city square in the world there are standing many other top attractions in Beijing. But due to the limit time, we didn't visit them. Forget to say, there are some local citizens peddling: taking photos! The next destination: Forbidden City. Forbidden City is the largest ancient imperial palaces where 24 emperors, 14 of the Ming and 10 of the Qing, ruled the country from here over a span of nearly 500 years. It takes pride in its precious collections of more than 900, 000 cultural and art objects. The most impressive thing to me is that it is a dragon world. Almost everywhere in the Forbidden City you will see the patterns of the dragons with different shapes.

Summer Scenery of Mutianyu Great Wall

After lunch we visited the famous Great Wall in Beijing – Mutianyu Great Wall. The Great Wall was incredible! I am still in awe over it. The steps are all different sizes. Some were tiny baby steps, whereas others were giant steps that went most of the way up to my knee. The big steps were tough to climb, and there were not always handrails. I was glad at one point that there was a wall to my right, so I could grip that for balance.

On the way back to the hotel we had 45 minutes to take pictures at the Bird's Nest and Water Cube. The environment there is really comfortable. With the high rate of afforestation, the air is much fresher.

We will recommend this tour agency to family and friends and would take another tour the next time we are fortunate enough to visit Beijing.

Wonderful Tour in Beijing

I'm very happy that I have five days short holiday in early spring and during this period I would like to have a tour to Beijing. This is my first visit to Beijing and the trip did wonderful. I'm very satisfied with the services of the travel agency and I want to say thank you to beijinglandscapes.com.

Tiananmen Square

Since time is not enough, so I choose the 3 Day Package Tour to Olympic Stadium, Great Wall and the imperial places including Forbidden City and Summer Palace. Although the tour is short, my experienced English speaking tour guide told me a lot of the history about the attractions and old Beijing. I learn a lot during the 3 days trip.
I arrived at Beijing International Airport in the early morning. Then the driver transferred me to Beijing Howard Johnson Paragon Hotel located in Changan Street. On the way I saw high modern buildings standing along the street. And in the evening, I believe that the night scenery here will be really beautiful.

The five Star Hotel is equipped with the most advanced facilities and the room environment let me feel very comfortable. After a short rest in the soft bed after lunch, I began my tour. The first destination is the famous Temple of Heaven. It was the place where the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties worshipped heaven and prayed for good harvests. After the tour I ate the delicious Mongolian Hot Pot and then enjoy the excellent Chinese Kungfu Show. I like Chinese Kungfu very much and before I only see the performance on TV. This time, the excellent show made me very exciting. Thus back to my hotel, I still cannot fall into asleep.

In the second I traveled around the city center to see the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and the Summer Palace. In the third I was driven to the suburb of Beijing to enjoy the view of Mutianyu Great Wall and the Ming Tombs. I like Mutianyu very much. I like the feeling that standing on the Great Wall, looking around the mountains with green trees, breathing the fresh air, I felt as if the world belongs to me.

Although very tired after 3 days traveling, I still feel very excited. If time allows I will come back again to experience traditional Beijing Culture!

Temple of Heaven - must see in Beijing

Sadly, it was time to leave China. The Beijing airport is huge, clean, modern. Yeaterday I was picked up from the airport by the tour guide for my tour, today I will leave Beijing. Time is flying!

But we had a very good stay in Beijing. We went to see the Temple of heaven which is an old temple that the people of Beijing used to pray for good harvests. It is in a large walled park garden area just south of the center of Beijing. The main worshipping area consists of Three structures each is more impressive than the last with the second two having temple built on top.

We were witness to hundreds of Beijing locals, mostly in there 50's and 60's practicing all manor of exercise regimes from Tai Chi, Kung Fu, jogging, bat and ball, dancing - traditional Chinese (I presume) to ball room. I kid you not. I felt very unfit in there presence. The whole ambiance of the park and the people in it was fantastic and very calming and peaceful.

After lunch, we went to the summer palace, the tour driver was so skillful and we felt very comfortable on the car. The tour guide accompanied us all the way and explained the sightseeing to us. She told us history and legends about the summer palace. We all felt very pleased about this tour.

Today we went to the great wall, it was so splendid. We walked to the top and we did not use the cable car, as you know we are 53 years old. Hah, we are heros, our tour guide said!

I will come back to have another fresh look in the future!
