One Night in Beijing


If you only have one night in Beijing , go to the JINGSHAN before 8pm to have a good view of the magnificent Forbidden city . The JINGSHAN park closes at 8pm and once the lights of the Forbidden City come up , remember to take some nice photos. During my visit thee, I was not that lucky as the lights did not come up . Probably due to energy conservation efforts. However the reflection of the sunset rays against the roofs of the Forbidden City is a view to behold – a golden like scenery.

 Then go to a restaurant for the famous Peking Duck with some other local dishes. We had a sumptuous dinner at one of the earliest established restaurant famous for the original Peking Duck. There are many things you can do in Beijing , if you are a very into Chinese history and if you have the time i.e. a day tour of the Forbidden City, a stroll on the GREAT Wall of China, Temple of Heaven , a visit to the scenic Summer Palace etc.

Bars and Pubs
Sumptuous Dinner of Peking Duck

If you still have the energy proceed to HOUHAI district where there is rows of bars, pubs lining along the lake . This area of Beijing contains some of the most extensive old hutong neighborhoods and the three lakes of Xihai, Houhai and Oianhai. While walking along here , be careful as you will see many ushers whom can be very persistent. Look out for the historical stone bridge (Silver Ingot Bridge) here.

This has been such a fruitful and adventurous One Night in Beijing.
