Leisurely Visit, Fabulous Hiking Experience

I like China very much, perhaps because of its profound history and deep traditional culture. Studying in Beijing for three years and I only visited Summer Palace. In order to memorize my university life in China, my friends and I booked this tour last Saturday. Booking process is very easy and we did enough preparation waiting the coming of the tour!

Forbidden City

Once met the tour guide, we all gave each other the warm greeting. She is a girl called Anna. No matter Chinese culture, history or the attractions features, she could always give us the most detail information, we all admired her very much. First attraction is the Tiananmen Square. After getting off the car, we walked to this grand area. Tourists coming here are less than we expected. However, we need some check. It is truly a large scale square housing many dazzling buildings with many giant buildings surrounded. Luxurious Forbidden City is just located adjacent. Under the considerate leading, we arrived at the Meridian Gate. Wow, elegant, luxurious appearance poured into our vision. Under the decoration of the bright sunlight, this castle showed more dazzling and bright! There are many small palaces located inside an each of them has certain function. Anna holding many interests gave us the explanation. Very free and happy experience!

Badaling Great Wall

However, what impressed me deeply is Badaling Great Wall. In the early summer season, this section showed more vigorous. Lying on the elegant mountain, it is just like a guard protecting this area and Beijing city. Hiking journey brought us much happiness. Several of them took the cable car. But, I think climbing is the best. The ground paved by the old bricks presented more strong. Touching the bricks decorated both side, I felt I was back to the ancient times. I could taste the ancient culture from this giant section. Tourists coming here are more and more. We felt more and more tired with the far walking journey. We choose one watch tower to enjoy a relaxed. Wow, it is so cool under the soft breeze. In the corner of this watch tower, there growing some wild grasses. They showed very shy to greet to us. Through the window of this watch tower, all the sceneries far distance becomes very tininess. After about 1 hour, we successfully arrived at the top. One word could not describe the exciting feeling.

Taking many pictures with this tour, I felt very exciting! I would store this memory forever!

Highlight of My Beijing Travel

I had a day break last week in Beijing. So I decided to do some sightseeing and called the hotel staff the other night and asked him to help me arrange a trip in Beijing. The next morning, my lovely tour guide showed up and I hopped on a car with her and hit the road for my day trip. Our first stop was the Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City. Got to say, the imperial palace did not impress me much and it was packed with crowds. After lunch, my tour guide and I jumped in the car again, and this time we hit the road for Badaling – definitely the highlight of my day trip!

Badaling Great Wall

It did not take long to arrive at the Great Wall and after she took care of the entrance and cable car, we hopped on the chair lift up the wall. I had about 2 hours to explore the Great Wall and take pictures. Looking far beyond the greenery-covered countryside, I was totally dazzled by the amazing landscape, which stretched as far as my eyes could see. The paths at Badaling section were easy to handle, but there were some steep sections there as well. The walk to the first tower was very easy and short, as it was quite close to our starting point on the wall. People were flooding through the narrow archways of the first tower, I intended to get some pictures over there, but I just could not manage the crowd surrounding me. Other than the crowds at some sections of the wall, great picture ops are everywhere. I did get a nice view of the Great Wall at some point, gazing it snaking over the ridgeline. It was still flat stone paved paths, but it was much steeper as we headed for the second tower. On the other side of the second tower we found a place to sit and take a break.

After the short break, we started hike for the fourth tower. The tower was further than the other three ones, and the wide paths on the wall became much narrower as we marched forward. It was a fine day, with warm sun, little breeze passing by and when there was fewer people out there, I felt really great. Overall it was really a lifetime experience and I had so much fun!

Wonderful-designed Badaling Great Wall Hiking Tour

Experiencing Badaling Great Wall is my original idea, because the four years I stayed in China, I did not have enough time to freely challenging. This year, I will graduate from the university. In order to memorize the four years happy time, our dormitory members booked this private tour as last feast.

Badaling Great Wall

We all felt very exciting and went to the pointed hotel waiting for our tour guide. Weather on that day showed hotter than our expecting. We took off some thick clothes. Wow, tour guide is a lovely girl and we talked highly. We five girls got on the bus, Badaling Great Wall journey started. Tour guide is very informative about Chinese history, especially the ancient historical heritages. Soon, we became the best friends. After arriving at Badaling Great Wall, I felt very exciting. My friends all liked this kind of atmosphere very much. Trees here are blossoming with many sprouting wild grasses and flowers. Tourists are not so crowded than tour guide said. One of my friends and I, we two first stepped on the Great Wall building. Wow, how fresh and charming sceneries on this building. I was very interested in the air and environment here very much. My friend took out her camera giving the most beautiful view to the sceneries here.

After some minutes, they two kept up with us and we talked and communicated. To our surprised, any of us did not have any tiredness. Tourists coming here are mostly foreigners. We are all doing our best to conquer this elegant section. Look! My friend shouted, this is right the watchtower! I widened my vision getting close to the historical watch tower, delicate and grand. Through the window, the landscapes far distance brought me much wonders, green mountains covered by large scale green grasses, little flowers all covering all the area, presenting more lovely and fresh. In some of the wild bricks, I could see some wild grasses still growing vigorously. Yes, it is just same as this Badaling Great Wall, strong will! We got a short rest on the corner and went on hiking. With higher we climbed, more sweat we sending out. So hot and heavy laborious work! After 1 hour, we arrived at the top and have a fully relaxed! Bird viewing scenery is so charming and beautiful that I was reluctant to leave.

The comfortable Spa relieved all the tiredness of us, perfect designed itineraries, I liked it very much!
