True to Go! A hotel near Universal Studio BJ
From our arrival until we checked out, we felt really good. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The room is clean, with a skylight and free drinks every day (water and soft drinks). A nice place to relax after a day in Universal Studios, they give free shuttle roundtrip service to go to the Universal Studios in Beijing. Which is amazing because the hotel is close, just about 5–10 minutes away by shuttle bus.

THE OLD SUMMER PALACE!
The Old Summer Palace, also known as Yuanming Yuan, was an imperial garden complex in Beijing that was built in the 18th century. It was looted and burned down by foreign armies during the Second Opium War in 1860 and remains in ruins to this day.
During my visit here I got to learn a lot about Chinese cultural heritage and how the habitants of the palace used to live before the foreign armies arrived, It was once a magnificent complex with numerous palaces, gardens, lakes, and pavilions that showcased the finest examples of Chinese art and architecture.

What screams 5 star Luxury more than the Intercontinental Beijing Sanlitun? Arguably one of the best hotels in Beijing, this hotel located in the heart of Sanlitun is like Royalty.
With immaculate architecture and service, this is one of my favorite places to stay.
The room is too top, I booked the king room which is circular in shape with a stand alone bathtub and great view from the window. I also love that there is a gym and pool that is accessible for guests as well as buffet breakfast that’s to die for 😋. Just prepare about a 1500元 deposit fee, it’s a requirement before checking in.

Located in the heart of the CBD in Beijing, The Grand millennium Hotel is one of my most enjoyable stays in Beijing. Just from the entrance alone you get a sense of luxury and grandeur as if you are attending a grand ball. The staff is super friendly and professional they attended to all my needs and could communicate fluently in English. The room was pretty clean and cozy with a nice view from the window.
I recommend you to check it out if you happen to be in the CBD.

Rating - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

MOJI Mexican Restaurant in Beijing
MOJI is a Mexican restaurant chain in Beijing. The one I went to was next to Line 10 LiangMaQiao metro station . It was my first time coming here and the food was good , but the strawberry margarita was absolutely amazing.
Ambiance- Spanish music in the background and dime lighting for a serene feeling. If you’re a foreigner you should expect the constant stares from the waiters and waitresses and them walking up and down close to your table.
Avg. Price per Person - Depends on what you order. The 3 things I got came up to 206RMB.

Pretty Gubei Watertown outside Beijing
Gubei Watertown in Beijing's Miyun district is a little picturesque place where to spend a weekend out of the city.
There are many boutique hotels and local restaurants to try while wondering around aimlessly along the small canals and the quiet traditional alleys.
And don't forget to climb up the Great Wall before sunset to enjoy a beautiful views above the town! 🤩💕

Best Beijing Roast Duck🦆🦆🦆
四季民福烤鸭店(故宫店) located at Qianmen street.
It is the best roast duck I ever tried in my life.
Place is a little bit overcrowded and you need to take a ticket. If you want to have lunch there- take ticket in the morning. If you want to have dinner- take ticket at lunch time.
Because of Chinese new year many people traveled to Beijing and this place is very famous for its outstanding roast duck, we waited six hours.

Great Wall Heroes 🙌🙌🙌
Great Wall Heroes 长城好汉 Enemy tower N20, 748 meters above the sea.
We chose to go to Mutianyu because less visitors and tourists come here as this part of the wall is located more far away than Badalin Greta wall.
And we were never disappointed.
The view is breathtaking. Mountains are huge. The line of horizon seams so close that you think you can touch it.
Wear comfortable shoes and go go to explore!!!!

Best Beijing Hot Pot 🥵
This spot is HOT!!!!
Best Beijing hot pot I ever tried.
Traditional Beijing style soup with super fresh meat and vegetables. And their peanut souse with hundreds of ingredients. My favorite is sesame oil with garlic😅😅
Right food on the right time. It was almost -10 degree outside.
And interior is super nice with great view and fashionable furniture.
And one more: it got Michelin star ⭐️

Venice in Beijing!!!
Gubei Water Town is very cold in the winter…but so worth it!! ❄️☃️ We bundled up and went in the evening when the tourists were all leaving, and even though we had debated spending the full-day ticket price just to be there for the last few hours of the evening, it was so worth it. You can see in the photos just how much we “had the place to ourselves”! The food prices are definitely hiked a bit since it’s a tourist location, but the traditional street foods we tried were tasty, and contributed to the experience. 🍗🥘🍢 We want to go again in the summertime for sure, but for our first little taste of Gubei, it was a perfect albeit chilly experience. 🧣☕️🥰#mytripvlog #beijing #china #chinatravel #beijingtravel #asiatrip #expat #awesomepic
BE ABROADABLE - Nat the Expat
Hello CCTV HQ
This early December, I was in Guomao actively looking for a Covid testing site. It was so empty in the streets because of the numerous lockdowns that had befallen the city at the time. And I noticed how amazing the surrounding was in the CBD with the CCTV and CITIC Tower standing over me so majestically. So I did what a normal expat does in such situations and took out my phone to get some clean shots lol. And i also managed to find a hidden Stonehenge 🗿monument just behind those buildings, you should check it out!

Magnificent Great Wall in Ancient WaterTown
GUBEI WATERTOWN 古北水镇
plus bonus hike up SiMaTai entrance of the Great Wall of China 司马台长城!
One of my most memorable day trip in Beijing,China.
Book this Day-Trip Tour via Trip.com. Details were clear as to which Train Station and exit to meet up with the guide whom very swiftly helped us with the tickets and recommendation as to whether to tour the Watertown or Trek the Greatwall depending on your personal tempo!
We chose to do a quick walk around the refurbished Watertown to catch a glimpse of its beauty in day light , and took the cable car to the mid point of Simatai Great Wall . This shorten our trek, yet allowed us to enjoy most parts in day light , and we didn’t need to rush to trek the Great Wall. The scenery was crazy! though the height do pose some adrenaline drive to some but it is all worth it!
As the sun starts going down, we made our way down back to the Watertown.
The Watertown we saw in daylight is now transformed !
with the lights all up it’s almost like it’s another city! There are amazing theatrical shows , ancient night market and even a public hot foot bath!
This is a must visit!

Went Camping in Beijing!
One day, a group of people decided to go camping to escape the hustle and bustle in the city. We then headed to Fangshan District the southwest of Beijing to spend the night in the mountainous area which has a river with crystal clear water. The beautiful nature and landscapes were undoubtedly wonderful. We enjoyed swimming in the the river, chatting and preparing everything for the night. We brought food by ourselves and had BBQ at night. One of us played the guitar while we were sitting around the campfire. It was a memorable day. A good place to be away.

Plenty of coffee shops, food, art exhibitions, galleries, little shops and street art on many walls! A unique Beijing experience. Highly recommended for a group to browse and chill!#summervacation #beijingtravel #artgallery #streetart
Beijing’s 慕田峪 Great Wall
How to get there - The hotel I was staying at helped us hire a driver. We left at around 6am and arrived around 7.
Attraction - One of the beautiful world’s 7 wonders! The hotel recommended Mu Tian Yu for 2 reasons:
1- It is less busy than Badaling
2- The scenery is stunning
*Get there early! It gets super busy starting at around 9am. We were able to take stunning photos because we were there very early.
Shops - Along the way there are a few stands here and there where you can buy some drinks, snacks, and souvenirs.

The Great Wall of China - Badaling
#thisischina Badaling is one of the most common access point to the Great Wall. There’s a long distance bus from the city center that takes you directly there for 12 RMB only. As far as I remember the last bus is at noon! We prioritised arriving early at the bus station.
It’s a fun ride as you can catch views of the Wall on the way, but it was also quite lingering. The road was congested and we spent some time stuck in a traffic jam. Nevertheless, as soon as we reached, we have to walk a bit of a slope up to the ticket office. There are also a bunch of restaurants, souvenir shops and beverage shops.
Tip 👉🏼 Some souvenirs are ridiculously overpriced. It’s time to bargain! 😁I haggled with sellers and got some at decent prices.
Otherwise, the views from the wall are unlimited and incredible!🌳☁️☀️ Millions of opportunities for pictures 📸 and the fortress towers along the wall are good spots to chill in the shade!
Recommendation 👉🏼 Some stairs are quite narrow and steep 😬 Wear comfortable sporty shoes 👟
