The Beijing Tour

After spending 3 days in Shanghai, we flew up to Beijing for a very quick 2 1/2 day visit. We squeezed in as many of the sites as possible and enjoyed every moment of our exploring (except perhaps for the icy wind!).

Our first stop was right around the corner of our hotel - the remaining portion of the old city wall, leftover from the Ming Dynasty.

Afterwards, we headed toward the Temple of Heaven which was located in a gorgeous park.

This is the area around Tianamen Square ...

And, our last stop: The Forbidden City ... looking a bit crowded.

And, of course we did a drive-by of the Bird's Nest!
