2 Days Trip summary in Beijing

We ( 2 parents + 3 adult kids) have been 3 days in Beijing.
We toured 2 days with a guide called Annie come from online travel agency who had an excellent english, very nice personality and a lot of knowledge.
In our 1st day - we went to Ming Tombs, the wall and the Olympic center. In the wall (Minituba) we went up with the cable car, walked on the wall (downhill) which was nice and easy and then took the slide down. We loved the wall. We ate near the wall in a simple and very nice resturant. The Olympic center - we went at dusk so we saw it 1st in the light and then as it became darker, we saw the bird nest staduim getting red and the swimming pool getting blue. Don't miss it.
The 2nd day, we started at the Summer Palace. For us the best part was the scenary and the people standing and singing, then we went to a hutung tour (we did it on a riksha, if you want to save the money - walk in the streets) , the next station was a park near the forbidden city. As I've been already in the forbidden city and for me it was quite boring, we went up in the park and looked from there on the forbidden city. The kids were very happy to skip the forbidden city. Then we went to the heaven temple and from there to Yashu market. Near the Yashu market we found a very nice center with great western restaurants.
Our last day in Beijing which was also the last day of our trip ( 2weeks in China) was spent w/o a guide on a trip to the silk market and then to the 798 artists area. We liked both areas very much.
