Memorable Holiday in Beijing

I liked Beijing very much. It is really deserved the high fame of capital city of China. This time, I came to Beijing, I not only saw the representative buildings, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City but also taste the ancient culture of Beijing. It is really successful journey! On the first day, I visited Badaling Great Wall, very marvelous. It is best preserved attraction with charming sceneries and tranquil atmosphere. I was very interested in the legend stories hidden back. From the tour guide, I got much about this building, very legendary and interesting. What is the regret is that tourists coming here are so crowded that I could not have a careful appreciation. My mother liked Badaling very much not only because the magnificent layout but also the watchtowers and history prints.

Badaling Great Wall

Summer Palace is my favorite part of the whole journey. I liked the inner design very much, typical and charming. I saw the Marble Boat built for the ancient Princess Dowager. It is so luxurious located on the bank of Kunming Lake. In addition, the Suzhou Street left me a deep impression. Luxuriant trees decorated this place adding more tastes of South China. There are leisurely boats floating on the water, unforgettable and delicate. Sceneries standing on the bridge are largely different from that in the area. Together with my sister, we walked around the area appreciating the calligraphy and paintings hanging in some palaces. It is really a kind of enjoyment.

On the last day of our tour, we saw the giant pandas in Beijing zoo. They are lovely with white and black fur. I was very interested in their black eyes. With adorable behaviors and lovely appearances, each behavior attracts big applause and laughing. The environment designed for them are very tranquil and beautiful. The environment here is very tranquil and charming. There is one big panda playing water with very adorable behaviors. There are marks writing the words, no feeding, no climbing. Each of them has certain lovely name, very interesting. At last, we were reluctant to leave these lovely treasures.

Now, whenever I opened the camera seeing the pictures taken in Beijing, I would become very exciting. It seems that I just lingering in Beijing. Each scene is lively and lifelike. Much thanks to the tour!
 

Highlight of my 2-day Trip in Beijing

It goes without saying that an experience on the Great Wall is one of the most exciting and fun stuff to do while visiting Beijing. So when I decided to visit Beijing, I put the Great Wall in my itinerary and went to visit with my guide Mike. It was definitely the highlight of my trip to Beijing.

Mutianyu Great Wall

The section we visited is called Mutianyu and as Mike told me it was less crowded and well restored, very suitable for a hike. It took us over an hour to get there. I took the round trip cable car up and down for extra 80 CNY. After I was landed on the wall, I started to hike along with Mike. I walked from Tower 6 to Tower 14 and back again along the way. It took me about 3 hours to complete the whole trek on the wall. My knees were feeling it and my ankles hurt too after that. You could easily spend all day if you want as there are many more towers to walk to on the wall.

It suddenly got very steep in some places towards Tower 14, but to my surprise, it got steeper after the tower 14. If you want to save some energy, you better take the cable car to Tower 14. The view of the rural countryside was quite breathtaking and the snaking wall itself was quite impressive. I really enjoyed myself on the wall and got plenty of pictures taken up there. With fewer people on the wall, I felt like the whole wall was all to myself and I could explore it at my own pace. Soon, it was time to get down the wall. I also grabbed the toboggan ride. The toboggan ride down was fun, but just hope the person in front of you go fast, otherwise it will be less fun. Anyway, it was really an incredible trip I did to the wall!

If you ever make it to Beijing, you really should head down to the wall to go for a hike. Totally worth it!

Soak up Fascinating History in Beijing

By far the best trip I ever did in Beijing! Visited a couple of historic sights in the city. Highlight is no doubt the Great Wall and Forbidden City. Never been to Beijing before and not disappointed at all the first time I was there. Definitely once-in-a-lifetime Chinese experience!

Mutianyu Great Wall

First day my guide took me to see the Great Wall at Mutianyu and Ming Tombs. In the morning we went to visit the Great Wall and did an incredible hike and sightseeing on the wall. The wall was wonderfully built on the rugged mountains. The sight was very impressive as the wall snaked its way into the horizon. The day was great for a hike on the wall and the air on the top of the mountain was quite crispy. I really loved it over there and had fun as well! Getting down the wall, we had lunch and some rest. We then hit the road for the tomb area in the afternoon and spent a few hours down there. Had a stroll down a stone-paved path lined with lovely animal statues and then went to visit an underground tomb. Personally, I did not enjoy much while touring the creepy tomb. Other than some tacky exhibits, there was not much to see down there. After the tomb, we got back to the city proper and stopped by the Birds Next and water Cube to take some photos. First day ended on a pleasant note.

Next day, I was taken to visit the Tiananmen Square first and then led to visit the Forbidden City. The complex is really huge and more like a crisscrossed maze made of palaces, courtyards and walls. The architecture itself was all very impressive and it was nothing like what I have seen on TV or the magazines! Strolling through the massive maze felt like traveling back in time and I felt dizzy from time to time while moving here and there with our guide. She kept filling us some history and stories about the imperial palace and that made our visit more fun and enjoyable. Exciting the imperial complex, we were led to another historic site - Temple of Heaven. The park is larger than the Forbidden City and the architecture down there was quite different from what I saw in Forbidden City. After lunch we were led to duck down some Hutong alleys in the afternoon. The end!
