Impressive Beijing Package Tour with Good Services - (3)

Had visited the most symbols of Beijing, my husband and I had harvested lots of photos and the profound culture and history of Beijing. This day, we enjoyed the typical folk custom of Beijing in different places.

Stone Ship in Summer Palace

Summer Palace is famous for the largest and best preserved imperial garden in Beijing. In Qing Dynasty, Summer Palace was built by the Qianlong Emperor who sent this garden as a birthday gift to his mother. From that time, Summer Palace became the ideal place for royal to kill the summer heat. In order to not delay the national affairs, Summer Palace was built with some palaces for state. So besides the Forbidden City, Summer Palace is also the imperial palace in summer. Built on the base of Kunming Lake and Longevity Hill, Summer Palace is the prefect combination of southern and northern gardens in China. At present, the Summer Palace is opened to public and is the garden for local people. Especially in Summer, the Kunming Lake is crowded with lotuses, the green and clean water push these lotuses seems like the pink boats in the sides of lake. In ancient time, the Kunming Lake is also known as the West Lake, but is different the West Lake in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. In Beijing, it is one of the rare peaceful places, is regarded as the leisure place for local people to take exercise, do some handwork and talk about with each other. The Summer Palace is not the garden just for royal any more, it is the beautiful and peaceful garden for ordinary people, which make it popular and more alive.

Besides the Summer Palace, we also enjoyed the Lama Temple, Olympic Green and Beijing Capital Museum, these spots let us know more about the traditional folk-customs in Beijing. Compared with the visiting in two days before, this day showed more interesting and local things and habits.

Second day was a substantial day, including the Simatai Great Wall, Huhai Area and Nanluoguxiang, we spent all our power there. Some people might ask why we did not visit the famous Badaling or Mutianyu Great Wall, because we wanted to see the real Great Wall in China without many traces of human restoration.

Original Wall at Simatai

The original section of the Great Wall at Simatai is far away from Beijing downtown, but it was worth it when you hike the Great Wall. On the way to the Great Wall, we were always interested in the scenery along the way. Arrived at the Great Wall at Simatai, we were amazed by the most original and featured wall. It is not well-maintained as other sections of the Great Wall, the wrecked walls showing us its glorious history and also records the events happened there. In order to experience it more closely, we hiked it personally. My husband was addicted into its charming views, but I was interested in the explanation by the tour guide about its history and the events. I thought they are the abundant resources for China and Beijing, and worth to explore and study. The damaged parts of walls approved it once was the battlefield long times ago, and they are also the traces left by time. I was contradictory I thought, one side I wish these historical sites can be protected very well, but one side I wish they can keep their original features to let later generations know what happened to them.

The Houhai area and the Nanluoguxiang are very impressive. The narrow lanes and quiet life style is the real ordinary life in Beijing. These interesting lanes and courtyards are the living environment actually. For Beijingers, they should value these surroundings and life style very much.

I and my husband had an interesting experience in Beijing for this holiday. Not only the world famous scenic spots, but also the service offered by local travel agency, gave us an impressive tour. Including the airport transfer services, this package tour operator offered us the considerate services when we visiting the spectacular things in Beijing.

Magnificent View of Forbidden City

First trip day, we visited around Beijing downtown to enjoy the famous history and culture of Beijing and China by the attractions with long history. Must be referred is the Forbidden City, we had enjoyed it on TV or magazines, but it really is huge than my thought. When we close to it, I found we just seemed like the ants compared with its high wall and big gates. The general color of this city is red symbolizes the happiness I thought. It is said that the Forbidden City is the best preserved imperial palace in China. Since the third emperor of Ming Dynasty moved the capital from Nanjing to Beijing, it was the home to 24 emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasties until the last emperor in Qing Dynasty left it. From the tour guide, we knew this complex of architecture was rebuilt several times but still keeps its original features during so long time. Covering an area of 720,000 square meters, Forbidden City is the largest palatial structure in the world, which is one of the reasons why it attracts so many tourists from home and abroad to visit it.

Meanwhile, we also enjoyed the Temple of Heaven and City Planning Exhibition Hall after the Forbidden City trip, and the careful tour operator arranged a Kungfu Show in the evening, gave us a chance to know about the night life of Beijing. This day, we knew the past, present and future of this city which is an ideal city to settle down except the little pollution.
