First China and Beijing Travel of Mine

My family and I, in total of 5 people of us, we did visit Beijing last month. Our trip to China last month was the first time to visit the country for all of us. It was really important since China called has long history with rich historical attractions and abundant natural panorama. Even in capital, Beijing, we could see beautiful scenery in Summer Palace, an imperial garden of Qing Dynasty era which surrounded by classical cultural relics. The garden is different with others historical places in Beijing, this garden is also offer stunning nature sceneries which brought us to more enjoy the scenery than its history.

Summer Palace

More than that, Great Wall was a thing that should not be discussed more, it was just magnificent and breathtaking! Especially on Mutianyu Great Wall, less crowded and green plants grows everywhere. Great escape from bustling city and breathe some fresh air in suburban area close from the city. Then Temple of Heaven and Forbidden City, ancient important buildings of Ming and Qing Dynasty. Personally, I loved Forbidden City.

I could not be more proud to finally enter the sacred huge ancient palace of China. There, we could see lots of ancient historical relics in each important building and its amazing architecture. Based on our guide description, each building had its own functions at past. All of that was used by emperors of Ming and Qing Dynasty which from there emperors ruled the country for over a span of nearly 500 years. Lots of accidents, ceremonies or other imperial festivals happened inside the palace. It is a proof of China long history, a symbol and a national heritage of China that should not be abandoned.

Huge Hall of Forbidden City

Overall, I like the tour in Beijing. Well organize and a worth it tour that everyone should join. For me, all the things I did experience in the city were interesting and new. The people I've met, the things I've eaten, and the scenery I've witnessed in Beijing are things that I'll never forget. From my last trip to Beijing, I also realize that China is a HUGE country, has lots different opportunities for a traveler. Waiting for another chance to come back again to China and do some more trips to another famous city explore more about the country!

Taste the History of China in Beijing within 2 Days

Overall, I love the trip, its itinerary, attraction, service, guides, and others. Everything was so interesting, we got new experience and knowledge. Visit Beijing is an ideal choice for the first visitors who come to China. Apart from Beijing is the capital of China, the city also home for lots of historical places. Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace are three destinations that I already knew even before I did visit Beijing. The city is very modern, clean and organized with good transportation system.

Magnificent Mutianyu Great Wall

With this tour, my family and I, we able to visit lots of representative historical attractions in Beijing. The highlight of this tour is Great Wall. On Mutianyu section of Great Wall, we did see stunning sceneries as well as magnificent structures of Ming Dynasty Great Wall. This section relatively less crowded, has relaxing path for hiking without much tourists or local visitors. We did take the cable car up to the top with extra pay and that was worth it. The ride helped us save lots of time and energy, in additional, it took us to enjoy different views of the Wall by taking the cable car. We did took lots of photos and even make some conversation on the Wall.

Beautiful Imperial Garden

Besides Great Wall, there are other highlights in Beijing, one of my favorite is Summer Palace. Wished I had more time sitting on the shore of the lake enjoys the view. Summer Palace was used as the imperial garden of Qing Dynasty and become one of the most famous tourist spots today. The garden surrounded by several cultural relics where also hidden lots of history of China. Not only famous for its beauty, Summer Palace really attractive because of its lake. A manmade lake located in the center of garden, a nice summer escape among locals. Summer Palace is a huge garden, very ideal place for emperor's summer resort.

For me personally, the trip was organized and went smoothly from the start till the end. Daily, we were picked up from the hotel on time, pickup and drop-off service were really nice, very accommodating. Within 2 days, the weather was also very coordinated and clear, make our whole time comfortable. Thank you for the arrangements for this tour private tour. Highly recommended local travel agency and tour line!

My Short Private Trip to Beijing with Friends

Last vacation, I had a chance to explore Beijing in one day. So for that time, my friends and I, we had booked the tour on the website. For that, we could explore Great Wall and Temple of Heaven in one day. First, the tour guide had picked us right in front of our hotel and directly sent us to Mutianyu Great Wall. Actually, I had visited Mutianyu before, about two years ago. But because of my friends never come to Beijing before and more than that, they did not ever explore the Wall yet, then I should accompany them. It was okay for me, in additionally, I want to visit it once again with my friends.

Nice View on Mutianyu Great Wall

Mutianyu is my favorite section, few visitors that come, stunning views around and magnificent Great Wall. Tour guide give us 2 hours to explore it. So me and my friends, we started our journey with joy full. We climbed up to the Wall, high enough to capture beautiful views then take some photos. We really had fun, it has become a memorable memory of mine. Mutianyu is really a nice section, after tired enough to explore it, head back to the foot of the hill and meet our guide. She waiting us back and let us get on to the van. After that we had some lunch in the Chinese restaurant.

Altar in Temple of Heaven

After take some rest and lunch, we had visited Temple of Heaven. Temple of Heaven is a huge sacrificial altars that used by the emperors to pray for the good harvest at past. Entered the complex, tour guide shared lot of history about the place. It had long and lots history behind it. Tour guide was so kind, she waiting for us while we were busy to capture photos along the way. So, we were also gladly hear her description during the tour.

Temple of Heaven itself is so big and it is an amazing place same as another Beijing historical site I think. Deep cultural and architecture atmosphere still could be felt everywhere. After explore Temple of Heaven, we had also visited Olympic Stadium which shaped like a bird nest. After a short visit to that huge stadium, back to the hotel. Overall, my friends and I, we were very grateful about the tour. I am very satisfied with the service and it was a fun vacation!
