Just back from Beijing

Jump to last reply

I just got back from a one-week organized tour (through Pacific Delights) of Beijing. It was a great trip. Stayed at the Palace Hotel in Beijing, which is very nice and in a great location (walking distance to the Forbidden City). The shoppers in my group seemed to find the best bargains at the Pearl Market (which sells everything). A lot of people bought individual pearls which they had strung while they waited - for a good price. I really enjoyed the Great Wall - hired a driver to take me to the Wall at Simatai which was really spectacular and had virtually noone there, compared to Badaling. If you have any questions, just ask.
