To Make a More Flexible Tour

As the metropolis and the capital city of China, Beijing is my favorite city for exploring and enjoying. It stored too many treasures. I stayed in Beijing for three years. So, I gave a great chance to enjoy Beijing. For me, Great Wall, Forbidden City and many other modern buildings have been very familiar. However, for the regular Beijing tourists, I learnt a big lesson this time.

Flexible Beijing Tour

Renting a Car for Own Pace
So many years, I just enjoyed these attractions with my friends or families booking a large group tour. For us, the favorite attractions could not be lingered for long time, because of the limited time and other requests. Just now, I heard this service - car rental service. It is tailored for the tourists who are planning private tour, flexible and free pace. Just booking this service, experienced driver will pick you up from the ordered place and transfer you to the attraction you ordered. With good condition and cozy environment, the car could lead you get an excellent journey. It will be great chance for the family tour with free time, leisurely pace. For the tourists who are very interested in the Great Wall, they could enjoy a whole day journey.

Booking Beijing Side Trips
I always explored Beijing. I did not have a chance to go out to other cities nearby. But this time, Beijing side trips offered me a great opportunity to enjoy Datong. I widened my vision enjoying the local culture, history and loads of historical relics. Everything in Datong is seemed to be brought from the ancient times. I liked this tour very much. It is really a present for the regular Beijing visitors.

Booking No Shopping Tour
Tourism is becoming more and more popular in the recent years and at the same time, shopping is also becoming more and more popular. So usually the tours add some shopping process. If you do not like the shopping time in the tour, you could do as what I did this time. I join the no-shopping tour which is special made for those tourists who wanted to save money and enjoying free.

These were 3 mistakes that I have ever made. After grasping them, wish you a terrific holiday!

Mistakes I Made Visiting Beijing Imperial Buildings

I like Beijing history and culture very much. So, I always paid much attention on the imperial buildings. This time, I explored most of Beijing imperial buildings but not very satisfied. Now, I will share these three points with you.

Forbidden City

Without Detail Visiting Order
I really wasted a lot of time and money on the whole journey. Starting the imperial building journey just started from what I want. First, I visited Summer Palace, then Old Summer Palace, Temple of Heaven and Forbidden City. However, I just stayed few minutes in Forbidden City. Without detail visiting order is a big problem in Beijing. I wasted time and money. After that, I learnt the right journey should be starting from Beijing downtown area, Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and Summer Palace. Like this, tourists could take full advantage of every minute and paid much attention on each imperial scenic spot.

Without Getting Background
Before departure, getting the knowledge about the sightseeing or the background culture is very important. I just like a blind person strolling in these glorious lands just appreciating the natural sceneries in Summer Palace, ruined relics in Old Summer Palace and the building structures in the Forbidden City. For each palace, in fact, there are certain background and building ideas, especially for the palaces in the Forbidden City. In addition, the figures, gardens and the decorations are all storing certain ideas. For the tourists, if you grasp the background knowledge, you could get the essence of each spot. Like that, when wandering in these imperial palaces, you will have the exciting feeling. Just connected the sightseeing with your imagination, you will find you have been flying into the past times.

Without Leaving the Most Unforgettable Photos
Although I have explored many imperial buildings last week in Beijing, I did not get the real photographic views. I took pictures just following my feeling, beautiful flowers, pearl water in Summer Palace and several palaces in the Forbidden City. Now, I have understood the essence of Summer Palaces, Bronze Ox, Suzhou Street Garden, Kunming Lake and Hall of Joyful Longevity, etc. Apart from this, I also gained the Imperial Garden in Forbidden City and the several large palaces building.

For the imperial building visiting, I really gained much. The tips are more valuable than the money I spent!

Mistakes not to Make while Visiting Beijing

While traveling internationally, it is easy for first time travelers to make some stupid mistakes which may ruin your travel plans. It is more so while visiting Beijing as the historic city is full of crowds, ancient sights and great shopping. Here are some mistakes worth noting not to make while traveling Beijing.

Beijing Tour

Mistake 1: Crammed itinerary for short stay in Beijing
While traveling overseas, it is easy for us to get overly-ambitious when making travel plans, especially when you are visiting metropolis like Beijing. One of the dumbest ways to ruin your travel plans for a day trip in Beijing is to cram too many sights into a short amount of time. You really should not let a travel agent or tour guide talk you into one of those nine sights in two days itineraries. In the end you may find that you did not get what you were looking for on this trip to Beijing, and such a crammed itinerary did not enhance your travel experience at all. High chances are you will follow the guide, moving here and there and seeing those sights in a rush without taking enough time to appreciate its culture and history, which is not only stressful for travelers of all ages but also not worth it at all. This does not mean you should include as few sights as possible in your agenda, it is best to know those sights better before you make plans. Just be smart about planning too much for each day.

Mistake 2: Considering only guided tours while visiting Beijing
Another mistake those first time visitors often made while visiting Beijing is do only guided tours in Beijing. A common assumption for them is that guided group tours are the safest and easiest way for exploring a new place. However, it is not all true while visiting Beijing. It goes without saying that the guided tours come at a steep price and some tend to be rusher than the independent travel. You really can pace your own trip, make your own arrangements and make new friends. If it is the safety you are worried about, you can do it both ways - first go with a guided to get familiar with the city and then do the trips on your own.

Anyway, try your best not to repeat these above-mentioned mistakes when making travel plans for visiting Beijing!
