I truly took the road less traveled when I hiked out to a part of the Great Wall of China that is rarely traversed. This abandoned section of the wall was untouched and has never been changed or restored to be a tourist attraction. Here's exactly what's left since it was first built over 2000 years ago. Over grown plants with a few leftover bricks and the wall stretching into the distance for Miles. Walking through this ancient section of the wall and experiencing how it used to be. Unforgettable Experience! 🇨🇳
Growing up I learned about the Great Wall of China. I can still remember years ago when I sat in class listening to my teacher as he taught us about the history of the Great Wall and pedagogically showed pictures of it. Little did I know that I would actually get to see that in real life. It was BREATHTAKING!!! It once again proved to me that no matter how many times you've seen photos and how much time you spent reading about certain place like this, there's always something special seeing and experiencing it with your own eyes, things not even Google and Lonely Planet would be able to tell. 🇨🇳
Bearing a history of over 570 years, Qianmen street is the oldest and most famous ancient shopping district with the unique charm of the old streets of Beijing. 🇨🇳
It's only just been two years when I took my first ever flight to finally see the world and I have say I already left my heart in so many places. 👣🌏✈️
Constantly challenge yourself to see the good in every situation and the beauty in everything. I never post to impress anyone instead, I encourage people to get out and explore. The world is too big to stay in one place. There's a lot you don't know, many people to meet, most importantly you need to get out of your comfort zone!
There's is so much more to see in life! ☝️ 5K FOLLOWERS!!! A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL!!!
Be one with locals.
Hutong and Siheyuan are traditional Beijing residential and buildings with great ancient style. They reflect the unique habitation philosophy of the Chinese people.
It's always a great idea to stay in traditional residential area like this when you are in foreign country because you actually get to uncover and experience the daily lifestyle of the inhabitants, which will give you genuine insight into your destination. 🇨🇳
Surreal feeling to finally see Cherry blossoms for the first time and the petals falling like a snowflakes, it just doesn't seem real! 🌸😍
Beihai Park has history of almost one thousand years. One of the oldest and well-preserved imperial gardens existing in China.
The original construction of Beihai Park can be traced back to Liao Dynasty (907-1125). Base on that, the Taining Palace was built in 1179 during the Liao Dynasty (907-1125). In 1267, Kublai (1215-1294), the founder of Jin Dynasty (1271-1368), decided to construct the capital city Dadu (in Beijing today) centering on the Qionghua Island, which made the island and its surrounding lake a part of the imperial city of Jin and afterwards became the "Western Garden" of the imperial family of Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), which left me completely speechless. I can't imagine how much more is in this world that we were just inches from but over looked or missed.. Wildly remarkable! I felt like my heart was going to explode out of my chest. 🇨🇳
Nĭ hăo! 👋 Happy weekend everyone! 🌺
The Birds Nest. 🐦
Beijing Olympic Park is where the 2008 Olympic Games and Paralympics took place. It occupies a total area of 2,864 acres. I had seen so many photos of this spot and I have to say it was even more incredible in person. 🇨🇳
Definitely a bucketlist item to visit the Forbidden City which lies at the center of Beijing.
This Imperial Palace is the royal palace of both Ming and Qing dynasties of China (1368-1911), and is the world's largest, most complete ancient wooden structure. The Imperial Palace is divided into two parts, the outer court and the inner palace. The outer court was for the emperor's state affairs, the inner palace housed the emperor and his concubines. It has been turned into the Imperial Palace Museum. So much history here! So many stories. 🏯🇨🇳
Visiting the 'World's biggest square' is the best way to start My Royal day exploring the Imperial Palace. 🏯🇨🇳
Gate to the past.
Zhengyangmen was first built in 1419 during the Ming dynasty and once consisted of the gatehouse proper and an archery tower, which were connected by side walls and together with side gates, formed a large barbican. The gate guarded the direct entry into the imperial city. (And yes It's quite impossible to take travel photos without people in them when you're in China. 🤣) 🇨🇳
Beijing Crazy Street Food!
Wangfujing is the weirdest night market I've ever been to. This food street has a large selection of exotic street food, such as deep fried insects, snakes, and animal parts. (👆 scorpions) 😱
When God shows you He Exist ☝
Nothing beats the feeling of ticking off the very first thing that ever made it to your travel bucketlist. 🇨🇳
It's been two intense days so far and I already feel like I'm lost in a different reality. China is probably the biggest culture shock I've ever faced. It is SO different to anything I've ever experienced. 🇨🇳
I finally lay my feet on to ☝️ of the Ancient Capital of the World: Beijing, China 👣🌏🇨🇳
