Beijing the political, economic, and cultural center of China.
I didn’t intend on blogging about this trip. It wasn’t because I didn’t enjoy my time here, I did. This was the one trip where I focused more about taking in everything that I see, as oppose to trying to hit all of the must see tourist attractions. My intention for this trip was really just to see Beijing and to visit one of my closest friend from home who spending a semester in Beijing. All I have to say is that the air quality sucked and it’s probably the least English friendly city, but I am enamored by the depths of history that lies across this city.
The Forbidden City is a must see if you are ever in Beijing, it was the Chinese imperial palace from the Ming dynasty to the end of Qing dynasty. It is also where the Tiananmen Square and the Palace Museum is located. It’s crazy to think about the events and history that has taken place on these very grounds I’ve step foot on.
