Personnel: 3 families, 10 people old and small (2 60-year-olds, 3 7.5-year-old children, 5 adults)

Form: free travel + self-organized small group (because there are old people and children, I found a local travel agency in Beijing, a tour guide, a car, 10 of us and a car. All the itineraries are arranged by ourselves, and food and accommodation are provided. We find it ourselves. We can go wherever we want, whenever we want, it’s really convenient)

Why choose May Day Travel?

Because there were only three days off for May Day this year, but the country temporarily adjusted it and it suddenly became 4 days. Happiness came too suddenly, so I immediately checked the air ticket and got 50% off, haha. Thinking that May Day will be much less crowded than summer vacation and National Day, and the weather will be relatively comfortable, so I yelled in the group, and two friends immediately responded. In half a day, the hotel and air tickets were all settled, so a group of 10 people began to look forward to the arrival of May Day in half a month.

Day 1: May 1

Shenzhen—Beijing Shenzhen Airlines 6:50-10:50, 50% off air tickets

Hotel: Novotel Beijing Xinqiao Hotel, four-star, room rate 580 yuan/night (because I used the Huawei employee card, so I got the hotel agreement price, which is 50 yuan/room cheaper than the market price), three nights, hotel Located at the entrance of Chongwenmen subway station, near Wangfujing and Tiananmen Square, about 25 minutes walk to Tiananmen Square, there is a bus at the door to Qianmen, about 5 minutes, very convenient.

Chinese food: Opposite the hotel is a shopping mall, simply have a meal and go back to the hotel to rest for a while. (As a result, the children didn't sleep, and they all stayed in the hotel's fitness center, playing with various fitness equipment, chatting with various muscular men and beauties)

Afternoon: Shichahai hutong tour, the original plan was to take a rickshaw to tour the hutongs and learn about the history and customs of Beijing hutongs. As a result, Beijing is really human and resilient. "May 1st" Labor Day, all the rickshaw drivers had half a day off, so they didn't get a ride. Change it to a walking tour of the alleys to see various Beijing small market cultures. about 2 hours

Coming out of the alley, I went back to the Beihai subway station. As a result, there were too many people, and the subway station was limited, so the queue took a long time. It happened that Beihai Park was in front, so let’s go boating in Beihai Park. I believe that our post-80s generation grew up listening to "Let's Swing the Sculls". It was filmed in Beihai Park. Let us relive the fun of growing up and let the children experience their father more. Mom's childhood. about 2 hours

Transportation: Chongwenmen Station at the entrance of the hotel—Beihai, you need to exchange leftovers. The whole journey takes about 20 minutes. When you leave the subway station, you will find various alleys in Beijing, as well as the "Prince Gong's Mansion" of the famous corrupt official Hekun. The transportation is very convenient.

Get out of Beihai Park and take a bus to Chongwenmen West Station, about 15 minutes.

Dinner: Go back to the hotel and eat "Bianyifang", a state-owned restaurant, but the taste is average and the price is expensive. When I went to Beijing 3 years ago, I ate "Old Dong Roast Duck", and I personally think it tastes better. Consumption per capita 100 yuan

Day 2: May 2

I originally planned to go to the Forbidden City on the 2nd, but I received a call from the tour guide the day before that the Forbidden City was full on May Day, so the itinerary was adjusted, and I went to the Great Wall and the Mutianyu Great Wall on the 2nd. Everyone will definitely want to ask me why I went to Mutianyu Great Wall instead of Badaling. Badaling Because Grandpa Mao once mentioned the phrase "If you don't reach the Great Wall, you are not a hero", so various tour groups in China made various propagandas, so that those who have never been to other Great Walls in China only know that there is Badaling in Beijing, thinking that it is only Badaling. In fact, the domestic propaganda is to go to Badaling, and the foreign propaganda is the Mutianyu Great Wall. Various foreign leaders come to Beijing to climb the Great Wall, and they are also climbing the Mutianyu Great Wall.

The major scenic spots in Beijing are crowded with people all year round. How to avoid the crowds, get up early, you must get up early, and you have to watch the crowds if you are not early.

Mutianyu Great Wall opens at 7:30.

Get up at 5:30 in the morning, go out on time at 6:00, take breakfast in the car, arrive at the gate on time at 7:30, and the tour guide buys a ticket to enter. The Mutianyu Great Wall is very beautiful and flat, suitable for children and the elderly to climb. Only at the peak fire platform No. 24, which is the highest point, there is a steep step, which is also used by hands and feet. Compared with Badaling, it will be much steeper. There is no need to queue up in the whole process. There are also various photos on the Great Wall, and there are not many people. When I got down at 10:30, there was a long queue no matter it was the cable car or the gate. It is estimated that it will take at least 3 hours to queue. There are so many people that the experience on the Great Wall will definitely not be good, let alone taking pictures.

Chinese food: There are all kinds of food outside the scenic area, mostly sturgeon and trout. We chose a popular and highly rated restaurant on the Internet, called "Yujiaao". The food tastes good, but the portions are not average enough. If you go to eat, you must order a few less dishes, otherwise it will be wasted if you can't finish it. We didn't finish eating a lot later, so we packed a bag, and when we were hungry in the afternoon, we ate a vegetable dumpling, which was super invincible and delicious. Chai chicken stewed mushrooms, the mushrooms are delicious. There is also fish, which is also delicious. Per capita consumption: 80 yuan

After lunch, return to the urban area and go to the Temple of Heaven. There are a lot of people, and there are many people on the main line. It is recommended to go to the side to take pictures, and you can make a big movie.

At 6:30 in the evening, the flag was lowered at Tianmen Square, and there was a sea of ​​people. Decisively gave up the flag raising the next morning.

After watching the lowering of the flag, we walked for about 15 minutes to go shopping in Dashilan, which was also crowded with people.

Day 3: May 3

The major scenic spots in Beijing are crowded with people all year round. How to avoid the crowds, get up early, you must get up early, and you have to watch the crowds if you are not early.

Morning: Summer Palace, Old Summer Palace,

Afternoon: Prince Gong's Mansion

Peking University and Tsinghua University are closed on May 1st, so I didn't go in. Those who want to go have to make an appointment on the official account in advance.

The hotel is also very close to the Summer Palace. Get up at 7:00 in the morning, go out at 7:30, and arrive at the door at 8:00. Walking around, there is no sense of experience. It was only after 10 o'clock when we came out, which was the peak time for entering the park. When we were walking on the road, someone asked us why we were walking in the opposite direction. We proudly said, "We have finished visiting the scenery, and the next step is to visit the crowds". Slowly shouting, there should be a big laugh here. Ha ha ha ha

Old Summer Palace: It’s just a big park. The park is charged. Except for the ruins of the Western Building, there is nothing to see. But kids love the maze inside. How comfortable the life of the emperor was, watching a group of concubines unable to get out of the maze, haha, no wonder men want three wives and four concubines, wives and concubines are in groups. Fang didn't know that when medicine was backward, rich men took so many wives just to have more children, because the survival rate of children was too low at that time. Only rich families can take N wives, and ordinary people can't eat enough to eat, so why do they have three wives and four concubines?

After lunch, we walked around the Bird's Nest and the Water Cube, but there was nothing to say. But it is still necessary to take a look at the dragon veins of Beijing, and get some good luck.

In the afternoon, Prince Gong's Mansion was crowded with people, and there was an explanation inside, which still made some sense.

Lunch and dinner: Highly recommended, I will eat their home for the next few days, "Little Diao Li Soup", the environment is good, the taste is good, and the price is fair. Now my child recommends this restaurant whenever she hears that she is going to Beijing, because she likes the dishes there very much. Per capita consumption: 60 yuan

At 6:30 in the evening, I came to Tianmen Square to watch the flag lowering again, because it was close to the hotel, haha, there were a lot of people, but there were fewer people than the previous day. Continue to give up the flag raising the next morning.

After watching the flag lowering, you can go back to the hotel by bus or subway, which is very convenient. It takes about 20 minutes, and those who are willing to walk can also do so.

Day 4: May 4

The major scenic spots in Beijing are crowded with people all year round. How to avoid the crowds, get up early, you must get up early, and you have to watch the crowds if you are not early.

The Forbidden City opens at 8 o'clock in the morning, and it is already crowded with people. If you want to listen carefully, you have to go again in the future.

I originally planned to go to Jingshan Park to see the panoramic view of the Forbidden City, but there were too many people to go. It is recommended to go in the evening or early in the morning to see the entire Forbidden City, which is very spectacular.

Chinese food: Still "Xiao Diao Li Soup"

In the afternoon, the National Military Museum of China, the children liked it very much, and they were extremely proud when they saw various weapons made in China.

Evening: The plane was late, and I didn't get home until 2 am on the 5th. The child slept for 5 hours and went to school happily.

First-grade children who have just joined the Young Pioneers must wear a red scarf to Tiananmen Square to pay respects to Mao Zedong and the Heroes Monument.

Beijing cheered us with the rare blue sky and white clouds. My friends said we came to fake Beijing, shouldn't Beijing be gray? Haha, looks lucky. Beijing Blue! ! ! !

After lunch, we started the Shichahai hutong tour. Due to May Day, the rickshaw drivers had half a day off, so the hutong tour was changed to walk the hutong.

Children can also find their own fun.

After coming out of the Hutong, I went to Beihai Park. It will still be a little cold in the evening. It is recommended to bring a thin coat, especially for children and the elderly.

When you come to Beihai, how can you not go on a cruise? We all grew up listening to "Let's Swing the Oars".

The children's recruitment station in the park, how many people are there, and how many children are separated. hehe

The dinner was settled in Bianyifang. Sincerely, it is not recommended.

On the second day, the highlight of this trip to Beijing came, the Great Wall, the Mutianyu Great Wall.

In the early morning of May Day in Beijing, it was still very cold. We all wore three pieces, that's right. It was too cold, so I wore two coats outside.

Cultural and creative products of the Great Wall, there are vending machines at the entrance of the scenic spot.

The next step is to take the cable car to the No. 20 peak fire platform, which is really beautiful.

After getting off the cable car, you can see Mao Zedong's "Long Live the Chinese People" from a distance

Since we came early and successfully avoided the flow of people, the Great Wall we saw was "like this", which made me laugh out loud.

Because there are too many people in Beijing, my sister was not brought along this time, so my father stayed at home to play with my sister.

Only the shadows of our mother and daughter.

The three children were very excited and ran the whole time by themselves, because it was early, and again, there were few people on the Great Wall, so the children wandered all the way, had fun and ran, and rushed directly to the front No. 24 peak fire platform to wait for us.

If we can't run, we will slowly appreciate the beautiful scenery inside and outside the Great Wall.

No. 24 Fenghuo Terrace is sealed behind, and the unrestored wild Great Wall that has been sealed is the famous "Jiankou Great Wall". How many outdoor sportsmen come here, because the Great Wall has been in disrepair for a long time, and there are outdoor sports enthusiasts every year Injured at the Jiankou Great Wall, many accidents.

"If you don't reach the Great Wall, you are not a hero", reward each of the three children with a "hero card", buy it from the stall at No. 24 Fenghuotai, privately owned by the family, 50 yuan/3 pieces.

The last estimate is how steep it is, and you have to use your hands and feet to go up.

There is a beautiful little girl in front of me, wearing a miniskirt. In fact, other paragraphs are OK, but here, it’s troublesome, the light from the bottom of the skirt suddenly appears, and nothing can stop it. From time to time, you tell me, you are in me Behind, don't let the men jump in the queue. The key is not to jump in the queue, and the later estimates can be seen clearly.

Climbing to the No. 24 peak fire platform is really not ordinary tiring. In the last section, I walked and stopped several times before climbing up.

When I came down, I felt that my legs were not my own, they were limp, and I couldn't control them at all.

I got off the cable car at 10:30. As a result, the cable car was lined up like this. It didn't take 3 hours. I guess the foot of the Great Wall could not be seen.

Early, must be early.

The leisurely kitten is watching a show, a crowd show that almost always goes to the show on holidays.

At noon, "Yujiaao" had dinner, and there was a fishing puddle at the door. Two friends didn't catch it, but when my little girl made a move, there was it! It seems that I usually go fishing with my father, and I still have some skills.

Afternoon Temple of Heaven, nothing to say, just post a few photos

Wherever my girl danced, a few children danced wildly here, and the parents took various snapshots.

In the evening, I went to Tiananmen Square to watch the lowering of the flag, which fulfilled the little wish of the children to watch Tiananmen Square.

Dashilan at night.

On the third day, the Summer Palace, it’s still early, early, early. Be there at 8 o'clock.

Do you feel that you only see long legs in this photo, haha.

Next is the Old Summer Palace.

These two places, if I bring my sister to Beijing in the future, I probably won't come.

Prince Gong's Mansion in the afternoon.

For Chinese food, our favorite little hanging pear soup.

fourth day.

In the morning, the Forbidden City.

Tiananmen in the morning.

Waiting in line to enter the Forbidden City.

Treasure Hall.

People in ancient times were really idle, so they could produce high-quality goods everywhere. The pace of life is slow, there is no fuss, and the time is not easy to pass.

The nobles in the harem, looking at the sky every day, how does it feel.

Afternoon, Military Museum.

For four days, the trip to Beijing was over.

In a few years, when my younger sister is also in primary school, and I come to Beijing again, I must climb Jingshan Park in the morning to see the panorama of the Forbidden City.

It is best to pick a winter, where you can skate on the Shichahai Sea and skate cars.

Goodbye, Beijing.

Beijing, see you in a few years.
