My 4 Days Splendid Beijing Tour Package with Hotel-(2)

Had been looking forward the Great Wall tour for long time, we finally enjoyed the Great Wall during this 4 days Beijing tour package. It is said that the Great Wall is the symbol of China, is one of the world wonder in the world, and is also the must-see in Beijing.

Steep Steps on Mutianyu Great Wall

Pick up on time, we met the tour guide and driver in hotel and transferred to the most beautiful section of the Great Wall – Mutianyu Great Wall. It drives in long time compared with other attractions in Beijing downtown, but really worth it. We climbed the beautiful section personally to appreciate the beautiful views which never let us disappointed. According to the trip advisor, the Mutianyu Great Wall is the most popular choice for foreign tourists, and the best section to enjoy the majestic and grand views of the Great Wall. As she said, we really met many tourists here coming from foreign country, and still some local people. The best place to enjoy the grandest scenery on the Mutianyu Great Wall is the watch tower 20 which is a higher platform for viewing the beautiful views surrounding the Mutianyu Great Wall.

Climbed down, we were transferred back to Beijing downtown to enjoy the local Hutong around Houhai area. Compared with the majestic Great Wall, the Hutong shows more original and ordinary. It is said that the Hutong is the ideal place to understand the local ordinary life and experience the special life style in Beijing. It is really different in our country, the narrow and zigzag lanes the place where people need to live by. Simple door closes the flourishing lives between several families in a big Chinese quadrangle. People living there seems like in a big family, help each other and take care of each other. It is really a kind relationship between persons. Admire it very much!

My 4 Days Splendid Beijing Tour Package with Hotel-(1)

Since I retired, my husband always want to visit the world with me. During the tourist to the countries, China is the most impressive one, especially in Beijing. Owing to the strange surroundings and language barrier, we booked a tour package arranged for retirees online, this way helped us solve many troubles and save much time. It is explained by the trip advisor, this trip for retirees is designed for retirees professionally, without the spots need to spend much strength. And we started this tour then.

Forbidden City-best preserved imperial palace

Complete transfer service send us to hotel and pick us up from hotel to scenic spots. First day, we visited the Forbidden City, Beijing capital Museum and Temple of Heaven in the day time. It is said that the Forbidden City is the best preserved imperial palace in China and the largest palatial structure in the world. According to the tour guide, during the long history of China, many cities were regarded as the capital in different dynasties, but since the third emperor in Ming Dynasty moved capital from Nanjing to Beijing, the Forbidden City is the home to 24 emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasties, until the last emperor left from Forbidden City. Can you image the palatial structure existing now from 1420? It must spent lots of money! Then we continued to visit the Beijing Capital Museum which is full of the exhibitions of Beijing folks and customs, very interesting. Refer to the Temple of Heaven, it is the largest existing complex of ancient sacrificial building in China, but now it is a park fits for exercising, and it is said that many local people take exercises here in early morning.

At night, we enjoyed the Peking Opera show which is the most favorite program for local aged after the Peking Roast Duck dinner. It is the interesting day as the beginning of this tour package in Beijing.

2 Days Beijing Tour: Day 2 - Explore Forbidden City

Not very tired as first day, I visited the representative attractions in center of Beijing with a good sleep in hotel suggested by the trip advisor.

Tiananmen Square

In the morning, I have breakfast in hotel and waited for the tour guide and driver. In fact, I like to enjoy the slow and quiet morning, so I got up early. The tour guide and driver arrived at hotel on time and we transferred to Tiananmen Square. It is so large that I didn't recognize it is a square first sight. Many tourists took pictures here, I was wondered that why they photo with a square. The tour guide explained that Tiananmen Square is the largest city center public square in the world. In minds of Chinese people, it is holy place for holding many important ceremonies. Located at center of Beijing, Tiananmen Square is one of the representations of Beijing. At same time, the buildings around Tiananmen Square are very significant in China, and the flag-raising and flag-lowing ceremonies are all held here every day.

Collections in Forbidden City

Through an underground express, we entered the Forbidden City which means that ordinary people are forbidden into this imperial palace in Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is the best preserved imperial palace in China and the largest palatial structure in the world. It was the imperial palace for 24 emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasties with the most history and stories. Forbidden in that that, but now it is a famous attraction of Beijing and a vast museum collecting and showing various treasures that you cannot enjoyed before. It is said that it has more than 900 buildings, gates and structures were built with arrangement along the north south central axis of old Beijing. It is advisable to take pictures as much as you can, this is the only way to bring back your memory while reviewing from the album. Interestingly, I took various pictures of porcelain. It is not an easy thing to visit this huge city carefully in one or two days. It needs you patient experience and taste to know about the long history of China.

Last, we moved to visit the Temple of Heaven which is also an imperial building for sacrificing god in ancient time. It is said that this garden is larger than Forbidden City. However, I thought the Forbidden City is still the most attractive with various stories.
