Impressive Great Wall and Ming Tombs Day Trip

My day trip visit Badaling Great Wall, one of the famous sections of the Wall was very memorable! It was my first time to visit the Wall in China and I did it with my family. A big family! So I had chosen this private trip! Overall, yeah, it is very organized and under control. Me and my family, we also had a great vacation!

Changling in Ming Tombs

At the morning, tour guide picked us in front of my hotel. She was very nice and polite person. Greet us with big smile and good English, we directly ride on to the van and head to the Ming Tombs, our first destination. That day fortunately the weather was good! Along the journey, tour guide was told us about everything, about the city, history of Ming Tombs, one day journey that we will take etc. So we did not get boring.

Arrived at Ming Tombs, we entered to the big area with many tress and Chinese pavilions or pillar. Tour guide was told us more about history of Ming Tombs, where buried 13 emperor of Ming dynasty and even more some empresses in the area. Explore the tombs, not all of the area, some part of it, I could feel little bit scared. The place was very quiet and calm, might be because there was a sacred area.

Magnificent and Crowded Badaling Great Wall

After that, we transferred to the Chinese restaurant to take some lunch. After have a little rest and had some Chinese lunch we go to the Great Wall. Badaling was very crowded and a lot of local people. But we keep enjoyed the trip and excited climbed the Wall. Although it was tired but I am proud I already visited the Wall! Very impressive one! The sceneries were very stunning and fascinating!

After about 2 hour explored the Wall, we gathered together and tour guide was waiting for us to back to the city. We had visited Olympic Stadium and have 45 minutes to take some photos around the stadium. The architecture was just so amazing and magnificent. Satisfied with all of the whole day photos that we had taken, we head back to the hotel and tour guide send us home. That one day was goes very quickly and memorable! We all happy and grateful to have this tour! Thank you!

Cooking Learning in Beijing

I am good at western cuisines, but I have deep impression about Chinese cuisines in a Beijing tour. Occasionally, I surfed tour packages to Beijing on this local Beijing tour operator, I surprised to find an interesting route about Chinese cooking and it attracts me deeply. Without any hesitation I book this one day cooking learning tour with a 4-days classic Beijing tour package.

Sour and Sweet Pork Steak

With the tour guide, I arrived at the local cooking school where I would learn Chinese cooking. Different from western cuisines, Chinese cuisines are made through frying, steaming and boiling with various accessories. First, the expert told me some basic skills about how to prepare the Chinese cooking. It is a complex process to recognize these various accessories for ordinary people but me, because I am a cook actually. The expert was amazed about my skill of cooking and praised that I would learn Chinese cuisines very well. After taste my fruit of cooking, the expert said I can be a good Chinese cook if I like stay in China to learn Chinese cooking sequentially.

After lunch, the tour guide leaded me to a vegetable market which is familiar with the market in my country, and I am very excited in it, because it is the place I always go to. Enjoy these fresh vegetables, seafood and meat is my happiest thing in my life. As a cook, I like to communicate with these kind original materials of cuisine. Last, we visited local famous snack shop and I brought many kinds of them and want my family would taste these delicious Chinese foods and snacks.

In one word, I was addicted into the Chinese cuisines including the cooking process and delicious fruits. I am still learning Chinese foods in my home if I have free time, and my aim in future is open my own Chinese restaurant in my country.

Private Day Tour to Mutianyu Great Wall & Summer Palace

Among these famous attractions of Beijing, I had visited most of them in last professional Beijing tour package. This time to Beijing for business, I chosen a local Beijing tour operator and booked the no-visiting attractions in one day, Mutianyu Great Wall and Summer Palace.

Last time to the Great Wall at Badaling, I had been shocked by the crowded people. The real advisor said the Mutianyu section is always the first choice for foreigners in Beijing, because of less people and beautiful scenery, though a little far away than Badaling. It was worth of the price offered by Beijing travel agency. Beijing China tour operator gave us the most informative suggestion and big help to my Beijing tour.

Mutianyu Great Wall

Picked me up at departure time at my hotel and drove to the Great Wall at Mutianyu. Steeper than Badaling, Mutianyu section is suited to enjoy the whole process of climbing personally. Cable car is just a transportation way for inconvenient people, but it loses many feelings about this magnificent wall. So I decided to climb to the top and take cable car down. On the way to the top of the Mutianyu section, I come across many foreigners. Talked to them and share their ideas about this Great Wall section, I got many information about their tour, gave me various inspiration.

Bridge in Summer Palace

Had typical Chinese lunch, I liked the characteristic foods more and more. We were transferred to Summer Palace. This is a famous spot in Beijing, also is an ordinary exercise place for local Beijingers. Having the largest royal park and being well preserved, it was designated as a key cultural relics protection site of China, in 1960 by the State Council. Constructed in Jin Dynasty, by the time of Ming Dynasty, it has become the luxurious imperial garden, providing royal families with rest and entertainment. Today, it is the good place for ordinary people to rest and entertainment. I was so lucky to appreciate and enjoy the imperial garden.

Wonderful day in Beijing, looking forward to next time!
