Beautiful Shichahai & Bustling Wangfujing Commercial Street

Do not know if the profound Chinese Complex or others emotion, seems every Chinese who never have chance to Beijing has a small wish to look at the imperial city with reverence. Beijing, the old city with long history, leaves us many sincerity, sacred, solemn, familiar, leisurely, or helpless. What do you think of Beijing?
Old people said reading history let people wise. The Beijing in my sight is sagacious, and lively. Shuttling back and forth in the old hutongs, always pieces of historical pictures flash before me. The places known in book still silently guards Beijing after so many years.

Beautiful Shichahai
Beautiful Shichahai

I like Shichahai, because it has rich culture and history, it was the place gathering temples in history, famous as the Nine Nunneries and One Temple, so named Shichahai. In Yuan Dynasty, it was the start of North-south Great Canal, with wide water area and beautiful views. At that time, the shipping industry was flourishing, which drove the area of Gulou Street to the bustling business area. The Yinding Bridge stretching across lake, built at the connection of Qianhai and Houhai. Standing on bridge, it is easily to enjoy the magnificent views of Houhai and Xishan Mountain, so it was reputed to the Yindingguanshan which is one of the Yanjing Small Eight Views. Shichahai area is also a traditional scenic spot keeps the original folk customs and the characteristics of old Beijing. And now Shichaihai has become the best place to boating in summer and skating in winter.

I also like Wangfujing area as vigor as Beijingers. Beijing culture reveals in everywhere, including this street. In Liao and Jin Dynasties, Wangfujing was just an unknown village, became more crowded in Yuan Dynasty, and it was built with ten prince mansions in Ming Dynasty, the Wangfujing began to task shape. The busy people get rid of burden at night, to enjoy the leisure culture at Wangfujing. Various kinds of delicious smells spread all over the street, stimulate the taste bud of people, it is a place bearing the history and full of vitality.

The winter of Beijing has less bustling and irritable, more quiet and light. After the article about Beijing culture, have already to trip in Beijing?

The weather today is not very good, with light fog, so that standing at the foot, I could not see the top of the mountain clearly. It's time for lunch, but on the snow land there are still a lot of people. Everyone here enjoy a happy skiing time with sweet smile on the face, even though uncollected fall.

Skillful coach teaching skiing

Not all tourists here are good at skiing, most of them are like me, just the beginner. In order to ensure the safety and meet the needs for beginners, in Lianhuashan Ski Resort, you could find many professional coaches. Usually they are standing on the snow land dress in coach suits. Seeing you standing on the ground or with poor ski stills, they may come and ask you whether you need to learn from them.

During winter seasons skiing is one of the most popular sports and theme tours in Beijing. Also in Beijing there are a lot of ski resorts with advanced facilities and comfortable environment. According to the limit time, we choose Beijing Lianhuashan Ski Resort, which is nearest to Beijing downtown.

Take bus No.918, after about 2 hours driving, get off at Liangshanzhuang Station, we go to the destination – Lianhuashan Ski Resort. Walking along the road lead to the snow world, we saw some pedlars selling gloves, hats and glasses for skiers to keep warm. In order to keep warm while skiing, I also spent 20 Yuan to buy a hat.
