Beijing was a really vibrant city. Apart from the heritage attractions such as the Great Wall, there were also many great modern attractions (such as the indoor ski resort, which I didn’t take a picture of).

Now, Beijing isn’t all that old…

I also enjoyed the culinary aspects of Beijing, and loved the variety of restaurants. Fourteen nights…we had Japanese meals and western-style meals as well, but never outside the university nearby/hotel.

Overall I loved Beijing, and it’s definitely a place I will revisit with my family. We had a really fun 15 days…well, if only I didn’t lose everything from my camera…
