Historical Site
A vast majority of tourists who visit Beijing for the first time consider the Forbidden City as a place they must see. The Forbidden City, known as Gugong in Mandarin, once served as the imperial palace for 24 emperors during the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is a symbol of ancient China. Although it is no longer China's political centre, you can still feel its former glory once you are within the courtyard and surrounded by the high walls. Its long history has left behind a large amount of precious architecture and cultural relics, making it one of the most important cultural heritage in modern China.
Summer Palace

Garden
Situated in the Haidian District northwest of Beijing, the Summer Palace is a Unesco World Heritage site that used to be the palace and garden of the emperors of the Qing Dynasty. It is the largest and most well preserved royal park in China. Construction of the palace began in 1750 and it served as a residential and entertainment area for the royal members. The palace underwent two major reconstructions after suffering damages during invasions by the Anglo-French Allied Forces and the Eight-Power Allied Forces during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Summer Palace can be divided into three sectors: a political activity area centered at the Hall of Benevolence and Longevity; an empress living area concentrated around the Hall of Jade Billows and Hall of Joy and Longevity; and a tour route concentrated along the long corridor, rear hill, and the west sector.

Historical Site
The Great Wall of Badaling in Yanqing, Beijing, is a pass for the Ming Great Wall. As the saying goes, "you are not a hero until you reach the Great Wall". Most locals take this spot to be the start of the ascent of the Great Wall. The Badaling Great Wall is the best-preserved and most complete section among the various great walls in Beijing. The total length of this sectionn is 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) with 43 watchtowers, however only 2.3 miles (3.74 kilometers) and 19 watchtowers have been restored and opened to visitors. Compared with other sections, most stairs are not very steep and they are equipped with handrails, so it is a relatively easier climb.

Trip Moments

Lydia   
On the way home from Yunfeng Mountain, I want to go to the old pears yard the delicious pears that I brought back last time. It may not be the season. I looked for a home that I had seen on the Internet before. Heshe, like a quiet paradise, is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday. The courtyard of Heshe adopts the method of cluster design. Different designers design different styles of courtyard suites, but they all adopt the theme of yard, and space is vibrant and distinctive. The unique feature from the outside is the parent-child home consisting of five independent cabins that have been rebuilt and rebuilt. A separate courtyard in the middle of the cabin is like a public outdoor living room in this yard. The wooden house decorated with all-wood structure reflects the original local style. The natural environment is combined with the architecture to satisfy the children and the intimate adults to feel a warm life together. The whole family should be because there are an oversized living room and an open kitchen. Is it a bit like one of the Three Yards . The ceiling of the bedroom house can be active. In the evening, you can open the bed and watch the stars. Think about it.
