China - Part I (Beijing)

I just came back home two days ago from my three week journey in China. Just wanted to share a few pictures.

Temple of Heaven
The symbol of Beijing, built over 500 years ago, isn't it beautiful?

Temple of Heaven
(Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests)

Temple of Heaven
(Imperial Vault of Heaven)


Great Wall
Climbing up this section of the Great Wall requires good physical endurance. The slope is incredibly steep. It took me about an hour with breaks in between to reach the top. The view is worth all the effort.


Forbidden City


Inside the Summer Palace

Bronze Qilin statue

Marble Boat

Pictures of Hong Kong will be in the next post!
