We visited some of the most famous sites in the world - The Forbidden City, Tian'anmen Square and the Great Wall - wow! We went on a private tour to a non-touristy part of the wall, and we ended up being the only people there! We even spent the night in a tent (indoors because the wind was quite hectic) but still with a view of the wall and got up early to watch the sun rise over this ancient landmark - unforgettable!
The food... Y.U.M.! We ate dumplings, hot pot, weird sosatis and the BEST Peking Duck ever! Definitely some of the most memorable (and cheap) cuisine we've eaten on our trip thus far :)
Colourful, loud, smelly and amazing, we have a feeling this is a country we'll have to visit again!
Next stop is Suzhou to visit Irene and Rihann - the only family we'll see during our six wee trip :) Onward to the rest of our Chinese adventure!
