Top Forest Park to Go in Beijing

Beijing Longqingxia

For those who want to spend some quality time with family while in Beijing, the Longqingxia Forest Park is an excellent choice. Longqingxia Forest Park lies adjacent to Longqingxia scenic area. This area used to be a vast wasteland which is covered with a lot of vegetation and landscapes. Since 2002, after a series of landscaping and forestation, this area has been brought back into life. Nowadays, Longqingxia Forest Park has become an integrated vacation spot which centers on rural eco-systems. After the bonfire, the tourists can park their cars somewhere and take a walk around this park. They are free to take some fresh air and enjoy the idyllic views in nature and temporarily lead a new rural life.

Mistakes I Made Shopping at Panjiayuan

I was very interested in Chinese traditional items and antiques. So, this time, I came to the famous Panjiayuan Market. It is the largest, most complete, cheapest and most popular market selling second hand goods and curios in China. There are too many types of goods in this market. I felt it is just a museum. However, I made some mistakes in the purchasing procedure.

Beijing Panjiayuan Market

Without Carefully Confirming
One vender introduced me an ancient jar that looks very beautiful. I decided put it on the hall of my house. It brings us the traditional tastes and anent culture. I thought the price is very suitable for the quality. I bought it. But, after going back home, my father told me it is a fake. I got very upset for it. My friends told me that it very good to bring a magnifying glass. Carefully appreciating is an ideal choice. When select, we should be careful. In common, the sellers can be roughly divided into three categories: special stores where the goods are of high quality and high price, individual shops where good articles are mixed with bad ones and the stalls where the goods are of the lowest quality. We should select the seller carefully and compare the goods and price.

Believe the Sellers Completely
For this ancient jar, the seller told me how he got it and the stories behind it with simple words. I thought he is very informative. So, I bought it. But, after that, friend help me explained the inner ideas. He told me that do not look at the items in dimly lit places or under the light. Instead, looks at them in bright natural light to ensure the quality. Do not believe the story that the seller told, Many stories are made by the sellers in order to make money. So, in some times, we should smartly to select our favorites.

Without Making Contrast
In addition to the ancient jar, I also bought one teapot. The price is relatively high. But, I thought it deserved! However, I saw another same teapot sold much lower price with same quality. This time, I understood, after confirming what you want, you should compare them getting together.

Through this time shopping, I got shopping is truly an art.

Amazing Beijing Visit

I always heard the story of Chinese Great Wall and Forbidden City. But, I have never got close to them and enjoyed a deep visit. This time, in order to celebrate my birthday of 20 years old, my father booked one day private tour for our three.

Forbidden City

We lived in the Beijing downtown hotel. On the departure day, we got up early and enjoy the breakfast. After twenty minutes passing by, we came to the gates of the hotel. Yes, the car is waiting for us! After greeting with each other, we started our journey. It is not far from the Tiananmen Square. But the checking procedure is so complex that it delayed much time. First, we were led to visit Tiananmen Square, the largest city square in the world. To our surprised is that Tiananmen Square shows more fruit than we expect. It not simply means a square but a solemn land. This land houses Great Wall Hall of the People, Chairman Mao Memorial Hall and Monument to the People's Heroes, etc. For each attraction, tour guide all gave us the most considerate explaining.

We entered into the Forbidden City from the Meridian Gate. I clearly remembered this gate starts our Forbidden City visit. I liked Chinese traditional culture and history very much. I imagined that this golden castle building can give me much information about Chinese ancient times. Once entry, the large scale ground left me a deep impression. Walking further, there are so many places. Most important is that each palace has the certain function and features. For Chinese historical leaders, I got a little. The buildings arranged are very harmoniously with holy atmosphere. We took a lot of pictures with what we are interested.

Badaling Great Wall

What conquered all of us is the magnificent Badaling Great Wall. After enjoying lunch, we were driven to this wonder. It is located in the Beijing suburb area with tranquil environment and marvelous sightseeing. In the early autumn, this section showed more vigorous. We really enjoyed the happiest time in this building. Vendors here are not crowded as the tour guide said. Tourists here also are less than we expect. In the beginning, climbing journey is very simple. But, at last I really lost my strength. Each step needs much strength to hike. When we stepped on the high point, all my exciting feelings sent out!

I liked the Chinese Great Wall very much! It conveyed us not the surprising appearance but inner soul!
