Spring Excursion in Beijing

Last week I had an amazing outdoor excursion to Badaling and enjoyed some walking and sightseeing in the Summer Palace when I got back in town! I was fun and as amazing as it could get! I just loved every minute of it! Definitely the best combination – Badaling hiking with relaxing garden walking – I ever had while visiting Beijing!

Badaling Great Wall

I had a decent Chinese breakfast in the morning before my tour guide showed up. It is hard not to fall in love with the Chinese food when you are in Beijing, so over the few days when I was in there I really had sampled a great deal of delicious Chinese gourmet food! As Steve Lin turned up, I jumped on a car with him, heading to our first stop of our day trip – the Badaling Great Wall. On our way over there, we talked a lot about the Great Wall. He spoke English well, so we had a great conversation and I could tell from his face that he was really proud of the Great Wall. It was fun on our ride to Badaling and before we knew it, we were already at the foot of the hill where the Great Wall was built. Upon getting off the car, we headed for the entrance. Lin took care of the entrance and we grabbed a cable car up the wall. On our way up the wall, I had a sweeping view of the snaking engineering feat from above. I got to say, it totally vowed me with its spectacular sight! After we got down on the stone path, we started to trek along on the wall with the crowd. I really had a fantastic time and a lot of fun hiking all the way up the wall and taking in the views!

Summer Palace

After we had a decent lunch in a restaurant, we started to head back to town to visit the Summer Palace. The trekking for hours on the wall was pretty exhaustive, to be honest, so I was really glad we could relax with a walking in the imperial garden – wandering at my own pace, sitting down on a bench or snapping some fine photos – just loved it there!  Summer Palace is really an amazing garden, full of temples, pavilions and other sights! Time flied! We had to call it a day after touring the garden for a while! Definitely once-in-a-lifetime experience!

My Short Private Trip to Beijing with Friends

Last vacation, I had a chance to explore Beijing in one day. So for that time, my friends and I, we had booked the tour on the website. For that, we could explore Great Wall and Temple of Heaven in one day. First, the tour guide had picked us right in front of our hotel and directly sent us to Mutianyu Great Wall. Actually, I had visited Mutianyu before, about two years ago. But because of my friends never come to Beijing before and more than that, they did not ever explore the Wall yet, then I should accompany them. It was okay for me, in additionally, I want to visit it once again with my friends.

Nice View on Mutianyu Great Wall

Mutianyu is my favorite section, few visitors that come, stunning views around and magnificent Great Wall. Tour guide give us 2 hours to explore it. So me and my friends, we started our journey with joy full. We climbed up to the Wall, high enough to capture beautiful views then take some photos. We really had fun, it has become a memorable memory of mine. Mutianyu is really a nice section, after tired enough to explore it, head back to the foot of the hill and meet our guide. She waiting us back and let us get on to the van. After that we had some lunch in the Chinese restaurant.

Altar in Temple of Heaven

After take some rest and lunch, we had visited Temple of Heaven. Temple of Heaven is a huge sacrificial altars that used by the emperors to pray for the good harvest at past. Entered the complex, tour guide shared lot of history about the place. It had long and lots history behind it. Tour guide was so kind, she waiting for us while we were busy to capture photos along the way. So, we were also gladly hear her description during the tour.

Temple of Heaven itself is so big and it is an amazing place same as another Beijing historical site I think. Deep cultural and architecture atmosphere still could be felt everywhere. After explore Temple of Heaven, we had also visited Olympic Stadium which shaped like a bird nest. After a short visit to that huge stadium, back to the hotel. Overall, my friends and I, we were very grateful about the tour. I am very satisfied with the service and it was a fun vacation!

Short Visit to 4 Famous Attractions in Beijing!

The best trip that I ever had! With low budget price, friendly tour guide and professional tour agency, we did visit many historical places around the capital in one day. That day, we did explore Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City, Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven. A short trip but I gave us deep feeling and knowledge about Beijing and China. We got the tour online from the website beijinglandscapes.com. The website provides a lot of tour lines, bus or private tour that will bring you explore many famous attractions in Beijing. That time, we decided to join this one day bus tour which is cheaper than the private tour.

Chairman Mao Memory Hall on Tiananmen Square

That day, tour guide picked us up at the hotel, right in front of our hotel on time. Since it is a bus tour, so after get on to the van, we gathered with other travelers and together we visited Beijing famous attractions. So, our first destination was Tiananmen Square. Arrived at Tiananmen Square, we did saw huge square that filled with lot of visitors. Lot of security officers spread over the square. Tour guide told us everything she knew about the square very clearly. Tiananmen Square is the world biggest public square that surround by many historical places. After that, we headed to the next destination, Forbidden City that located near Tiananmen Square.

Gate in Forbidden City

Enter to the imperial palace called Forbidden City, I could see large scale of royal palace right in front of our sight. Tour guide said, there have hundreds rooms inside this huge palace. And I was just thought, the palace was just more like a city than palace. Everything are available inside the palace at past. Design with ancient royal architecture and layout, Forbidden City make us amazed by its beauty and charm.

Temple of Heaven

After enjoyed the spectacular palace of China then we moved to the famous sacrificial buildings in China, Temple of Heaven. After a short visit to the main building of Temple of Heaven, we did have lunch in Chinese restaurant and rest for a little bit.

Beautiful Garden - Summer Palace

Next, at last but not least, we enjoyed relaxing trip to the famous royal garden called Summer Palace. As the living area for emperor when summer, Summer Palace has a cool garden atmosphere with unbeatable garden landscapes. The tour was impressed us, more than our expectation. All was going smoothly and we had fun trip with all of you!
