"Let's say what you absolutely..." Beijing Favorite Tip by laar
Beijing General: 425 reviews and 520 photos
Favorite thing: Let's say what you absolutely shouldn't do. Don't do Beijing in two days. There's simply too m uch to see and I feel really sorry for those Organized Tours that visit the Chinese wall in the morning, the Temple of Heaven during lunch and The Tianamen square in the afternoon (including the forbidden city, the Mausoleum, the People Congress and the national museum). I went three times to the forbidden city and spent all times nearly five hours, still seeing new things and really enjoying mystique and the architecture.
Fondest memory: While staying in Beijing, the Jazz festival was organized. One of the Dutch business man was a jazz fanatic and took us to the festival one evening. Not the real festival, but a little club above a bookstore. it wasn't even a show, it was merely a jam session. All main artists of the festival showed up in that small place, jamming together with the local crowds and really going lose. The atmosphere of the worlds best jazz in that cold, empty ceiling floor of a small Chinese bookstore was amazing.
