Trip 3: China Part 1: Beijing at the Begining

Hi hI Guys... Guess what? I'm back from my wonderful... And extremely cold holiday from Beijing China.

Haha... Now How about that? Impression in Beijing... Dusty... And EXTREELY COLD!!! I finally experianced -20 degree Celsius!!!

Day 1: Arrived at the Oriental City

After Traveling for 5 hours and 45 min. We finally arrive at Beijing. Wohoo... And also , it is pretty rare for me to join a tour... Cause normally, my mum want to travel on our own.

Anyway, we arrived pretty late... So Our tour Guide, Xiao Cui, take us to experiance a delicacy... Known as Jiao Zi... Or Chinese Dumpling. And I was pretty shock about the dumpling in China is way much different from Malaysia... Here we put pork and carrot inside...

Here, they put all sorts of material inside... Such as eggs and vege... Different type of vege... Pork and vege... Egg and onion... Supremely many... And they use vinegar for tasting.

Here's a pic where the workers making dumplings...

Next we witness some stunt show... Even perform by little kids as small as 5 y. o.!!!


Day 2: Travel back to Ancient China

After a heavy Buffet Breakfast, I head off to the first destination... The Forbidden City. And boy... IT IS RIDICULOUSLY BIG!!! Xiao Cui explain the history of it by introducing the many rooms for the king...

First... Let's see the gate to the Forbidden City...
Gate 1: Now it is known as the Tien An Men Square... Before this... This gate is actually seperate the peasants from the Noble... No Peasant can pass his gates.
Now behind it is Gate 2: This gate seperates normal Noble family from the Kings. Only the governer who must attend the morning assembly can pass this gate. And also if there is a big festival...



Now here is this large area behind me is the only place where any festival / big anouncements that involve with the Emperor is held. You always see this in some Chinese movies right. Hehe... Well I been there alright.

Besides the gate, we are not allowed to enter the royal throne and bedroom, cause they are been protected from tourist from accidentally vandalizing them. We only can see it in a distance. This part sucks...


More to come... Keep on watch!!!
