Scenic Bus Ride plus Incredible Sights

Been in Beijing for a couple of days and had seen plenty of ancient sights within the city proper. Figured it was time to get away from the city noise for a change to explore some sights outside the city. Then my trip advisior recommended a bus tour to visit Ming Tomb and Great Wall at Badaling. All was set!

Changling in Ming Tombs

Next day, met my tour guide at my hotel with other travelers and then hit the road outside the city proper. The bus ride was great and we all had a great time on the way to our first destination - Ming Tombs. I hit it off with a few guys on the bus and before we knew it the bus had arrived. The tomb area over there was really huge and sprawling with lush trees and bushes. We had a great stroll down a stone paved path lined with lovely Chinese animal statues. Me and those guys took a couple of group photos by the statues with the help of our guide. Later we were led into a huge tomb at the end of the path. Inside the tomb, there were plenty of interesting sights. My visit to the tomb was really a whole new Chinese experience for me as I had never visited any Chinese tomb before. By the way we also stopped by a jade carving factory which added more fun to our trip down there!

Badaling Great Wall

Exiting the tomb area, we hit the road for Badaling and had our lunch first nearby. The food was so-so but that was not important. Soon after our lunch break, we headed for the Great Wall for our hike. We all grabbed a cable car up the wall. Once we were landed on the wall, we started to trek along with our guide. The day was sunny and by the time we got on the wall, there was a huge crowd. The wall itself was very impressive, especially looking far into the distance - the snaking wall undulating all over the rugged hill overgrown with trees and bushes. After about an hour of trek, we all got really tired and sweaty and had to stop for rest by a brick tower. Afterwards, we finished the rest of our hike on the wall and got down the wall on a slide. On our way back to the city proper, we also stopped by the Birds Nest and Water Cube to get a good look at the unique architecture. Overall, it was quite a full day I had in Beijing! Loved it!

Dreamful Holiday

I have never experienced such a wonderful holiday with leisurely pace challenging the charming Mutianyu Great Wall and the imperial buildings. I liked the tour arrangements very much. The sightseeing satisfied my dream of discovering Beijing treasures. Tour guide is very responsible with aloud voice helping us explaining the background and their histories.

Steps to Mutianyu Great Wall

First destination is just my favorite attraction - Mutianyu Great Wall. In the original, this section appeared not beautiful as the real appearance I appreciated. It is a long-distance Great Wall building with best preserved appearance and tranquil environment. Most of the important is the sceneries here, very fresh and charming. I got very interested in the forests area. To be honest, in the beginning, I found everything is full of leisure, relaxed vendors, less climbers and the free little birds. Each of them brought us the free imagination. We climbed with each other, laughing and talking, sharing the experience coming to Beijing. Tiredness did not stop any one of us. When got to the half way journey, we saw the typical watchtowers. It is an elegant building with four windows. The bricks built on it showed very sophisticated. My father held many interests in its function. He told us that in the ancient times, all the soldiers stood inside and observed the behaviors of the enemies.

My mother took a lot of pictures with this magic fortification system. Not far area, there was a cannon model lying in the ruined ground. Many people crowded to appreciate. Although it was not the cannon in the original times, from it, people could see more Chinese past, culture, history and the relative backgrounds. After appreciating these, we went on our hiking again. There are too many mysteries I never got. Especially the local surroundings, standing on the top building, having a overview about the sceneries far distance. You really could not imagine how wonderful the sightseeing is! Taking pictures have become the main theme exploring here. After about ten minutes, we arrived at the top point. Getting sit under the luxuriant trees, when the breeze blowing through, my nerves were inspired. It seemed that I have returned back to the ancient times, very familiar feeling mixing into the strange feeling. We drank the water, enjoying the snacks appreciating the Great Wall landscapes.

Now, no matter when I appreciated the pictures took in the Mutianyu Great Wall, my mind and all the ideas will fly into them, unforgettable experience and terrific holiday!

Impressive Holiday, Big Harvest

Staying in Beijing for two years and I have not explored such a meaningful tour. Much thanks to my tour guide - Anna. She is really a smart tour guide, very responsible and sincere. No matter wherever we went or stay, she always tells us the attention points. W really got enough attention on the whole journey. About the scenic spots, it is no doubt terrific.

Forbidden City

Tiananmen Square appeared first. I liked the atmosphere there, large scale area, grave full of crowded tourists. It is really a very solemn place where we should pass through the safety check. There are many tourists coming here for enjoying the picture of Chairman Mao. Some are paying attention on the surroundings. We just entered into the Forbidden City through the meridian gate. Forbidden City is really a very dazzling castle full of imperial atmosphere and luxurious buildings. I enjoyed this place very happy that I combined the background and its building appearance. The main palaces built in the front area gave us a big shock, very solemn and grave. Golden appearance impressed us deeply. To the regret is they are all forbidden to enter.

Badaling Great Wall

Compared to the downtown imperial buildings, I liked Beijing suburb area better. I finally appreciated Badaling Great Wall. I really did not know how to express my exciting feeling and also did not know how to describe its appearance, its elegance and its magnificence. I just know it deserved the high fame of world wonder! At the beginning, we just leisurely enjoyed the climbing journey, free. The bricks built on this wall are all sending out ancient tastes. There are many holes appeared in the Great Wall. In fact, these small holes stored many ideas and background. We went on climbing, best preserved appearance, ancient atmosphere. Most impressive will be these watchtowers, real appearance as the book said. Standing in them, through the window, I could feel the ancient war times. Vendors selling various goods ranked along the way attracting many tourists attention. After finishing about eight percent journey, the steps for us are just like the mountains. It is very hard to keep moving. We had to find a land for relaxing. Keeping quiet to feel the real nature is a very happy enjoyment. After that, we encouraged ourselves and went on climbing.

Finally, we succeed conquering it. Standing at the top point, I found we have cultivated sentiment and mood. I widened my vision!
