China Highlight - Beijing

In early September, I went to China with my parents and sister. None of us speak Mandarin, but we survive! We started the trip from Beijing. 5 days in Beijing was not enough, coz Beijing is BIG!

Transport in Beijing consider tourist friendly, we took subway all the way. We avoiding taxi, coz none of us speak Mandarin when the taxi drivers only speak and read Mandarin :-)
But well, most of tourist attractions can be reached by subway and the cost is RMB2 to every destination. Unless to go to the Great Wall, we rent car from hotel.

Usually in every trip I love to try local/street food, but not this time. And we didn't go to the famous peking duck, but we found a nice Japanese resto next to our hotel in hutong area :-) Oh the resto next to Lama Temple also nice, they have the picture on the menu (very important for us) and the manager speak English well.

Mutianyu Great Wall. 2 hours drive from Beijing, lucky that we did not meet lots of tourist group. 

Temple of heaven park, on Sunday morning.

I wanna see Panda, so we went to Beijing Zoo ^^
