Great View in Beihai Park

How time flies! This is my last travel day in Beijing already and I really enjoyed a wonderful time in Beijing with the great service and organization offered by the travel agency. During the 3 days before, I have visited the representative attractions of Beijing such as Badaling Great Wall, Ming Tombs, Forbidden City and Tiananmen Square. Each of them has the own characteristics and I like the Olympic Stadium best.

Panoramic View of Forbidden City from Beihai Park

This afternoon I have a tour to Beihai Park by myself. It is really a large park located in the centre of Beijing. Beihai Park which is an island shaped like a flag in a lake. Now is spring in Beijing and the park is full of green shadows the birds are flying and singing happily. There were also people chanting, dancing and playing instruments throughout the park. It seems that it is definitely a place of escape from the city. During a half day traveling, I only visited a small part of it (Maybe I walk too slowly.). And my favorite bit was the view from the top. Look one way and you see massive skyscrapers, look the other and poking out of the trees you see the rooftops of the buildings in the Forbidden City. The feeling is wonderful!

This evening I booked the Beijing Acrobatics Night Show through beijinglandscapes and the performance was excellent. The tour guide picked me up at 6:00 pm and then drove me to the theater. On the way the English speaking tour guide explain to us about the history and the development of Chinese Acrobatics. I knew that Beijing Acrobatic Troupe is one of the best in China. During about one and half hours performance, I enjoyed gravity-defying contortionism, jumping through hoops, Hand feats, chair-stacking, and plate-spinning acts and more. I can't imagine how they do those stunts! It's a wonderful evening.

At last I would like to say that my four days Beijing tour is really perfect beyond my imagination. If time allows I will come again!

Peking Duck and Wonderful Night Show

My friends and I we four people have a China vacation during this holiday. Of course the capital city – Beijing is our first tourist destination. Time flies, this is the last night before living Beijing. So we joined a group of Beijing Night Tour: Peking Duck Dinner and Acrobatics Show to have a nice end to our Beijing tours.

Quanjude Roast Duck

Peking Duck originated in Beijing and it is famous throughout the world and duck pancakes at home are one of my favorite foods! The English speaking tour guide picked us up at 5:00 pm and drove us to one of the branches of famous Beijing Roast Duck Restaurants – Quanjude Roast Duck Restaurant. We ordered one duck with accompaniments and some duck spring rolls. About 20 minutes later a chef arrived at our table and proceeded to chop a whole cooked duck in half. The chef is experienced and within a few minutes, the whole duck became chips. We were left with 2 plates of duck, one containing the meat, one containing half of the ducks head, and the other holding suspect looking meat, which I can only assume were parts of the poor duck's innards with plum sauce and cucumber! Then we were given pancakes and onions. The duck had a very strange taste in my opinion, it didn't come close to our Western duck pancakes and the meat was very fatty! However, my other three friends like it very much. All in all, the dinner gave us a very deep impression.

After dinner we went to enjoy the excellent Acrobatics Show – one of the traditional Chinese treasures. Since we know nothing about Chinese acrobatics, before the show, our tour guide told us a lot about the history and its development. Chinese acrobatics has a long history and it is the traditional performing arts. In the development stage of primitive art, together with music and dance, Chinese acrobatics has become the main dominant culture at that time. The show began at 8:00 pm. It was wonderful! I can't imagine how they could do these difficult and dangerous actions. I show my great honor to all the acrobatics actors!

We had a wonderful Night Tour in Beijing and thank you very much to our experienced tour guide. Tomorrow we will travel to Shanghai, the modern city in China and I hope we will have a nice trip there just like Beijing!
