I went to Beijing for 5 day, from Oct. 1st to Oct. 5th. It was a little cold here early in the morning, but got warmer and even hot at noon. I went to visit the famous Great Wall and Beijing Hutongs, and historic sites such as the Temple of Heaven and the Forbidden City with modern iconic buildings like Tiananmen Square, Bird’s Nest Stadium, and Water Cube.
Day 1 Flight from Chengdu to Beijing
Day 2 Hiking at the Great Wall
It’s a long ascent from parking place to the start pointing of the Great Wall. After a few steep stairs, the road diverges into two parts. Standing at the intersection, I am so amazed at the spectacular Great wall from both sides. The rest of my day followed with a long and exhausted hiking, but it was exciting!! Haha~
After the tour, it was worthy stopping to see the Water cube and Bird Nest. They are amazing buildings and make you experience the modern art.
Day 3 Wandering at Beijing Hutong
I went to a less well-known Wudaoying alley, feeling art and culture.
Day 4 Appreciating the Temple of Heaven
This is my first time to see the royal place in person! Beautifully designed buildings stand in the sun and another lazy day of me!
Day 5 Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City
Magnificent scale and here you could have a imagination of royal family’s life.
