Day Trip to Beijing!

Since I had a day to kill, I thought I’d go on a day trip to Beijing to try and meet up with a subscriber and see a couple of the sites like Tiananmen, Wangfujing, Hou Hai, Gu Lou, and eat Peking Roast Duck! Yeah, yeah, playing the tourist….but actually, I had fun! I can’t believe it – I haven’t had fun in BJ since 2011 haha!

Absolutely fascinating.It must be a nightmare reading for a History degree in China so much to know and so little time to analyse.
The food looks superb and the museums seem exciting,although why no original material?The politician needs to lighten up and allow us on the outside,yes I am a peasant,a view of the elite-what is there to fear?
Now more the greed factor has now kicked in and I would engorge on the output of China which is just fascinating.

Love the videos. I have to agree that I fell in love with the people and food. Quickly learned about corruption, pollution and gov’t control though. Plan on returning soon.

Beijing cuisine and restaurants look really good. Is it considerably more expensive to where you live?

Also could you see yourself ever living there?

Awesome! Looks like it was a fun day. How cool it must be to live close enough for a day trip into Beijing! I’m so jealous. 🙂

Fred Saga says:

next time you can try 卤煮火烧:, definitely my favorite Beijing local delicacy. As for roast duck, you want to try 便宜坊 as well.

Alex Liu says:

Gibberish Mike says:

Great Video!  Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought the reason why they have dim lights at any museum is because it “minimize light damage by minimizing the energy absorbed by artifacts.”

Hey, you’re supposed to be taking a break! 😉 Great vid as always, though!
