And here we go again, for the last but not least part of this crazy trip to China’s capital city.
So yes, travelling cannot last forever, and study time is another issue [Reason why it took me quite long to write it]! So here comes the last part of our trip, and what we did in Beijing.
Basically, all the following highlights were done in 2 days, so some in Friday, and others before our departure on Saturday evening. We wanted to see as much as we could before leaving, but also take some chill time, friends meeting etc…
We’ve been to Summer Palace, which is a great place that I’d totally recommand, however, it’s huge and if you really wanna enjoy the time there half a day (at least) is amazing, the park and buildings are very nice. Unfortunatly we arrived there a bit late, around 5PM, and even if we would have had enough time to visit, the sun goes down pretty early, which is not the best thing ever. But the funniest thing is that as Europeans, lots of Chinese wanted to have pics with us (biggest culture differences!!). We had a great walk there, and now some cool memories.
Temples • Lama’s Temple and Confucius Temple were the 2 we’ve been on Saturday, and actually I’d recommand to go first to Confucius temple and then Lama’s one, because there are in the same area (5 min walk from one to another), but Lama’s temple, the biggest Tibetan temple outside Tibet, is in my opinion the most impressible.
798 Art District • If you like modern art or if you’re one of these hipster, don’t miss it! This former industrial area is in transformation, and hosting various art place, mostly modern, but also shops and food court.
And finally, we had a great hotpot! Since the weather wasn’t the best some hot stuff, with meat, fish and vegetables was the best idea to get a bit warmer!
I hope you liked this post, and don’t hesitate to let your comments down here!
See you soon, xx
