Beijing, the Great Wall at Great China

November 27, 2011 at 9:25 am 2 comments

our first stop in our china journey, was Beijing, traveling through Emirates Airlines, we were lucky to try out the EK A380, it was very  comfortable for such a long flight ^__^

{ Beijing } is the capital of China, and one of the most historical cities. there are so many sites and places to visit, and we just couldn’t see everything in 2 days, but we tried our best 🙂

if you ever go to Beijing here is a list of places you might wanna check out if you have the time:

1. Great Wall of China.

2. Forbidden City

3. Summer Palace

4. Temple of Heaven

5. Olympic park

6. Pearl & Silk Market

7. WangFuJing St/ night market

8. Try Beijing Roast Duck

9. attend Tea Ceremony

the list can go on & on … these are just highlights of all the amazing things you can do there!

you can guess the first thing we did? of course visit the —-> {Great Wall of China} one of the 7 wonders of the world, with a history of more than 2000 Years! waw ^__^ it was sooo exciting!!!

the most convenient way is to booked a tour through the hotel, the wall can be reached by many different sections, the most famous is Badaling, Mutianyu (we visited), & Simatai.

Mutianyu section has spectacular scenery, & much less crowded than Badaling from what i read, and as our tour guide advised. i must say the views were spectacular! now specially that its fall, you can see the tree’s with colors changing red & yellow.. breath taking.

they told us, that there is a chinese saying, that a person is never complete until he/she climbs the great wall! so congratulations to us yaaaay ^___^

i must say that once you reach the wall, look around, feel the breeze, a complete feeling of piece takes over your heart ❤ a person can spend hours up there quietly without getting bored 🙂

it is by far, the most interesting, and “must do” item in the trip ^__^
