2 Days Beijing Tour: Day 2 - Explore Forbidden City

Not very tired as first day, I visited the representative attractions in center of Beijing with a good sleep in hotel suggested by the trip advisor.

Tiananmen Square

In the morning, I have breakfast in hotel and waited for the tour guide and driver. In fact, I like to enjoy the slow and quiet morning, so I got up early. The tour guide and driver arrived at hotel on time and we transferred to Tiananmen Square. It is so large that I didn't recognize it is a square first sight. Many tourists took pictures here, I was wondered that why they photo with a square. The tour guide explained that Tiananmen Square is the largest city center public square in the world. In minds of Chinese people, it is holy place for holding many important ceremonies. Located at center of Beijing, Tiananmen Square is one of the representations of Beijing. At same time, the buildings around Tiananmen Square are very significant in China, and the flag-raising and flag-lowing ceremonies are all held here every day.

Collections in Forbidden City

Through an underground express, we entered the Forbidden City which means that ordinary people are forbidden into this imperial palace in Ming and Qing Dynasties. It is the best preserved imperial palace in China and the largest palatial structure in the world. It was the imperial palace for 24 emperors in Ming and Qing Dynasties with the most history and stories. Forbidden in that that, but now it is a famous attraction of Beijing and a vast museum collecting and showing various treasures that you cannot enjoyed before. It is said that it has more than 900 buildings, gates and structures were built with arrangement along the north south central axis of old Beijing. It is advisable to take pictures as much as you can, this is the only way to bring back your memory while reviewing from the album. Interestingly, I took various pictures of porcelain. It is not an easy thing to visit this huge city carefully in one or two days. It needs you patient experience and taste to know about the long history of China.

Last, we moved to visit the Temple of Heaven which is also an imperial building for sacrificing god in ancient time. It is said that this garden is larger than Forbidden City. However, I thought the Forbidden City is still the most attractive with various stories.

The visit to Beijing Museum of Natural History

Yesterday, I visited Beijing Museum of Natural History that located not far from Qianmen Shopping street, Dashilan, Temple of Heaven and others interesting attractions around. First, I booked the entrance ticket one day before I visit the museum and get free entrance ticket. In Beijing, museum is also the best options for you to visit.

Dinosaur Exhibition

Arrived at the museum and enter the large area of the museum I saw lot of children that come with their classmate and teacher for their school programs. At the entrance gate before enter the museum area there are security x-ray area where you should check your bag, it was like before enter the subway station in Beijing. After entered the museum, right exactly in the left side we can see directly the fossils of dinosaur that exhibits on that area. Enter to the inside museum, we also can found the descriptions about how the theory of big bang happened and the results of it, how the earth was formed at past, how the earth formed in the first place, the evolution of animals, description about various species animals and other knowledge about organism that living on earth. Memorized again how the earth was built at past, it really like one miracle that happened for me, human and other organism on earth.

Origin of the Universe

Lots of children that come with friends, teacher and parents looks very happy exploring the museum. Visit the museum was like memorized about my childhood that also had visited the museum at that time. Now, visit museum I think it was like make a deep understanding about all the organisms that living together with us and struggle to keep their life on earth. We also realized how rich the earth it is and how to keep, love and protect the organism that live with us till now. Now, I also think how important all the organism to our life, depend on each other. For visit the museum, I also know various species of animals and other organism. After the tour to museum, it adds my desire and believes to travel the world, to directly see the animals and other things that being exhibits inside the museum.

Great Wall & Hot Spring Day Tour

Have you heard of the Great Wall at Mutianyu is the most beautiful section? Yes, I visited it last week with my wife in such cold winter. You may ask why I prefer to visit the Great Wall in winter and what it likes, and I must correct that I not only visit the Mutianyu Great Wall but also enjoyed the hot spring spa. Yes, this is a spa tour offered by local tour operator.

Watchtowers of Mutianyu Great Wall

Half day to Mutianyu Great Wall and half day to enjoy spa is the perfect arrangement for us in weekend. Picked me up in morning of Saturday on time, we moved to Mutianyu Great Wall. The Great Wall at Mutianyu is different with other sections, because it built on original address of the Great Wall of North Qi Dynasty is the most beautiful section but with less crowded. It is a fine day with bright sunshine, and we took cable car up and down to visit the No. 15 to No. 20 watch towers. For the time being, we stopped on No. 15 watch tower, but we thought the longer watch tower must be more beautiful with the higher location. Owing to the winter, there are few tourists but most of them are all foreigners.

Chunhuiyuan Hot Spring

After lunch, we transferred to Chunhuiyuan Hot Spring Resort which is also a beautiful resort with beautiful landscapes and has been designed for conferences, relaxation and fine-dining. We enjoy the hot spring spa in 2 hours and this 2-hour is the most relaxing time during this one year. It helped us unload pressure come from life and work, and during this time, we can forget everything and just enjoy the warm and comfortable hot water. We agreed that this spa is the best way to release pressure for us.
