Impressive Great Wall and Ming Tombs Day Trip

My day trip visit Badaling Great Wall, one of the famous sections of the Wall was very memorable! It was my first time to visit the Wall in China and I did it with my family. A big family! So I had chosen this private trip! Overall, yeah, it is very organized and under control. Me and my family, we also had a great vacation!

Changling in Ming Tombs

At the morning, tour guide picked us in front of my hotel. She was very nice and polite person. Greet us with big smile and good English, we directly ride on to the van and head to the Ming Tombs, our first destination. That day fortunately the weather was good! Along the journey, tour guide was told us about everything, about the city, history of Ming Tombs, one day journey that we will take etc. So we did not get boring.

Arrived at Ming Tombs, we entered to the big area with many tress and Chinese pavilions or pillar. Tour guide was told us more about history of Ming Tombs, where buried 13 emperor of Ming dynasty and even more some empresses in the area. Explore the tombs, not all of the area, some part of it, I could feel little bit scared. The place was very quiet and calm, might be because there was a sacred area.

Magnificent and Crowded Badaling Great Wall

After that, we transferred to the Chinese restaurant to take some lunch. After have a little rest and had some Chinese lunch we go to the Great Wall. Badaling was very crowded and a lot of local people. But we keep enjoyed the trip and excited climbed the Wall. Although it was tired but I am proud I already visited the Wall! Very impressive one! The sceneries were very stunning and fascinating!

After about 2 hour explored the Wall, we gathered together and tour guide was waiting for us to back to the city. We had visited Olympic Stadium and have 45 minutes to take some photos around the stadium. The architecture was just so amazing and magnificent. Satisfied with all of the whole day photos that we had taken, we head back to the hotel and tour guide send us home. That one day was goes very quickly and memorable! We all happy and grateful to have this tour! Thank you!

Excellent 2 Days Tour in Beijing - (2)

Second day, I got up earlier to experience the morning of Beijing. In this capital city, people all get up in early morning to start the day in office. Compared with them, I felt little joy. According to the tour guide, this day I just stay in center of Beijing to enjoy the imperial buildings including the Forbidden City and Temple of Heaven.

Beautiful Gate in Forbidden City

Also a sunny day, there were already many people in Tiananmen Square when we got there. Most of them are Chinese people, because this square is always the first choice for Chinese visitors come to Beijing in first time. For Chinese people, this square is a holy land in their heart, but compared with the largest city center public square, I like the Forbidden City opposite it. As the largest palatial structure in the world, it attracts lots of people every day as well as this day. Following this tour guide, I visited the most famous spots in it with fewer crowds. I would say this guide really is clever and patient. She explained every spot even the detail to me again and again until I understand them. I admired her very much, as she grows in such abundant country with various historical sites and cultural deposits, and she also know more about these values. In my opinion, these things really are the values of a country, just these history and culture support it to develop.

Moved on to the Temple of Heaven, the largest existing complex of imperial sacrificial buildings, I enjoyed the traditional sacrificial buildings carefully. In this city that the land is the gold, this complex covers large scale which is four times larger than Forbidden City. How luxury! In fact, the most luxurious thing is the history.

Excellent 2 Days Tour in Beijing - (1)

Under the allowed time, I booked a 2 days Beijing trip on a local travel agency, to visit the highlights of Beijing. I was amazed by these attractions, and their history and culture back of them. And this local travel agency is also worth to recommend to people like to travel in Beijing, it offers the patient trip advisor and the throughout service.

Hiking at Badaling Great Wall

Met the tour guide and driver at my hotel, they are on time! After simple talk, we were drove to the Great Wall at Badaling which is one of the highlights in this Beijing tour package. On the way, the tour guide introduced me various interesting places along the Badaling Highway. In short time, we arrived at the wall to enjoy it. The best way to experience the wall is just hiking it personally, the charm of this world wonder is the profound history and the background of it. By hiking, I tasted the real flavor of this wall, and knew more about it through the tour guide who is very knowledgeable. In addition, if you have no power to hike it the cable car is the great chance to enjoy its views in the other way.

Stone Bridge in Summer Palace

Get down from the Great Wall at Badaling, we transferred to the Summer Palace, the second stop of the 2 days Beijing tour. It was a sunny day, the park was crowded. It is said that it was the former imperial garden in ancient China, and it was the garden only built for royal and common people cannot visit it. But now, it was opened to public so that people all have chance to enjoy its great scenery. Besides the visitors, the most people here are local people just exercise here and so some handwork, it really is a good place for leisure.

This day was end in quick rhythm. In contrast, I liked the style people in Summer Palace, which is the real life.
