Just Gone Back to Ancient China

Climbing the Great Wall is always my dream these years. My father and grandfather all liked Chinese culture very much. Just on business in Beijing, I booked this bus tour to challenge Badaling Great Wall. The price is cheaper than I expect.

Summer Palace
On the departure day, I prepared enough waiting for the bus. For several minutes, I saw a bus and met the tour guide. On the bus, there are tourists from different countries and soon we became friends and talked about the attractions we would travel. First destination is Summer Palace. I did not have complete idea about this attraction. Once arrived at this large scale garden, I felt its power. Truly impressive! Tour guide led us and ordered us follow her. She explained this garden was built for the Dowager Cixi for getting rid of the summer heat. It is a large scale royal palace for entertaining and recreation. How luxury it is! Large water area is called Kunming Lake. Many young couple boated on the lake leisurely. I want to do so! After that, we walked further. Each corner was designed very perfect. All the pavilions are carved with lifelike patterns.


It is always said Badaling Great Wall is the most famous and magnificent. I finally got it. It is deserved all the high fame. To be lucky that the day we adventured the section is not crowded as the tour guide said. Together with my friends, we carried our food and drinks starting the climbing journey. Hiking journey is very terrific that we saw the local sceneries and the ancient buildings. To our surprise is that the Great Wall is decorated with handrails in case of slipping over. In the beginning, we did not feel any tired. But in the latter sections, all my muscle was stiffness. Under the help of my friend, I passed through the steep steps. Standing on the wall, appreciating the sceneries far away, it is really a kind of proud feeling. Some tourists took the cable car arriving at the top. I thought climbing is more terrific.

Much thanks to the tour guide. She gave us much help on the whole visiting journey. It will be the lifetime experience staying in China!

Short but Excellent Day Trip in Beijing

Last month, follow my father, we enjoyed a terrific holiday staying in Beijing. I clearly remembered the exciting feeling on that day we explored Mutianyu Great Wall and the Summer Palace.

Mutianyu Great Wall

Tour guide is a young girl. She getting together with the driver picked us up from our hotel. First attraction is Mutianyu Great Wall. To be honest, I liked Beijing suburb area very much. In addition to the tranquil environment, I liked to enjoy the local atmosphere very much. Upon arriving at the foot of the Great Wall, I felt the magnificent atmosphere. Weather on that day showed a little hot, very shinny. We packed a bag starting the exciting climbing journey. My father walked in front of me. I followed him while he explaining some story he knows of Mutianyu Great Wall to me. The scenery here is so charming that I felt I was situating in the forests. This is my favorite feeling.

We passed through the wooden steps and arrived at the stone ground, long and clean. It is really best preserved building with large sale grey bricks built on. My father liked to research the building very much. He touched the brick and carefully appreciated the gaps between these bricks and the holes. These holes seemed to be designed specially according to the history conditions. After that, he took out the camera taking pictures with these history prints. We went on hiking and climbing. Everything here seemed to be existed in the ancient times. For about twenty minutes walking, we came to the foot of watchtowers. It is really the watchtower building, delicate and grand. It is designed typical and different from the watchtowers I saw in the book. It is built not on the ground but lower according to the terrain. We entered into appreciate the inner structure. Inner is dim and little black than the outer side. There are many children climbing the window playing. It is truly dangerous behaviors.

Summer Palace

In the afternoon, we were transferred to the downtown area to visit the Summer Palace. It is a large scale royal garden full of royal tastes. My father paid much attention on Suzhou Street. Tour guide told us the origin of this place. It was built for entertaining the princesses. In order to let them appreciate the gardens of south China, emperor ordered to build this Suzhou Street for entertaining.

We just leisurely enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere and terrific attractions, truly impressive!

Dreamful Holiday

I have never experienced such a wonderful holiday with leisurely pace challenging the charming Mutianyu Great Wall and the imperial buildings. I liked the tour arrangements very much. The sightseeing satisfied my dream of discovering Beijing treasures. Tour guide is very responsible with aloud voice helping us explaining the background and their histories.

Steps to Mutianyu Great Wall

First destination is just my favorite attraction - Mutianyu Great Wall. In the original, this section appeared not beautiful as the real appearance I appreciated. It is a long-distance Great Wall building with best preserved appearance and tranquil environment. Most of the important is the sceneries here, very fresh and charming. I got very interested in the forests area. To be honest, in the beginning, I found everything is full of leisure, relaxed vendors, less climbers and the free little birds. Each of them brought us the free imagination. We climbed with each other, laughing and talking, sharing the experience coming to Beijing. Tiredness did not stop any one of us. When got to the half way journey, we saw the typical watchtowers. It is an elegant building with four windows. The bricks built on it showed very sophisticated. My father held many interests in its function. He told us that in the ancient times, all the soldiers stood inside and observed the behaviors of the enemies.

My mother took a lot of pictures with this magic fortification system. Not far area, there was a cannon model lying in the ruined ground. Many people crowded to appreciate. Although it was not the cannon in the original times, from it, people could see more Chinese past, culture, history and the relative backgrounds. After appreciating these, we went on our hiking again. There are too many mysteries I never got. Especially the local surroundings, standing on the top building, having a overview about the sceneries far distance. You really could not imagine how wonderful the sightseeing is! Taking pictures have become the main theme exploring here. After about ten minutes, we arrived at the top point. Getting sit under the luxuriant trees, when the breeze blowing through, my nerves were inspired. It seemed that I have returned back to the ancient times, very familiar feeling mixing into the strange feeling. We drank the water, enjoying the snacks appreciating the Great Wall landscapes.

Now, no matter when I appreciated the pictures took in the Mutianyu Great Wall, my mind and all the ideas will fly into them, unforgettable experience and terrific holiday!
