My Beijing tour was AMAZING
My Beijing tour was AMAZING! I visited Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City [and Imperial Garden], The Temple of Heaven, The Great Wall (Day and night Tour) and finally the historic and breathtakingly beautiful Gubei Water Town. Thank you Chinahighlights for making my trip as enjoyable as possible and a huge THANK YOU to Yuan Yuan my tour guide, who was so informative, very patient and helpful and also incredibly funny! more
