If there is any regret in my heart, it is that I have never been to Beijing.

Beidiao, often mentioned on TV, reflects the prosperity and busyness of a modern city. The brightly lit city is filled with crowds.

Beijing is also a city with a long history. As the capital, it has a strong sense of history. As the capital of the Ming and Qing dynasties, what old Beijing left behind are various ancient ruins, alleys and alleys and the inheritance of the ancestors.

In Beijing, the modern buildings uprooted from the highlands and the Tiananmen Square buildings in the center of the city are all interspersed and intersected, giving people a particularly profound sense of visual impact. If you have never been there, I hope you can come to this city one day in the future and experience its ever-changing style.

What is travel, in layman's terms, is to go through a certain journey to another city or a scenic spot to experience the local customs and city style, experience the local characteristics, and leave you with good memories. A more profound point is to broaden your horizons in different places, cleanse your mind, and return to tranquility.

In fact, in the final analysis, it is nothing more than food, drink, housing, and transportation, which is the so-called transportation, food, accommodation, and scenic spots.

This is my first trip to Beijing. Let me introduce my five-day and four-night trip to Beijing.

A The first time I met the Forbidden City, the antique flavor beyond patriotic feelings

Catch up with the 70th anniversary of the National Day military parade, but don't want to miss the scenery of the Forbidden City, but also want to experience the splendor of the Forbidden City, the grandeur and majesty of the ancient emperor's house, so the first stop is the Forbidden City.

These three are the route maps of the Forbidden City, you can choose one of each. Meridian Gate is the only entrance, Donghua Gate and Shenwu Gate are the exit directions, and the normal route is Shenwu Gate.

It’s National Day, so I bought tickets in advance and arrived at Tiananmen Square early to enter the Forbidden City. I still underestimated the enthusiasm of people. It took about an hour to queue up to enter Tiananmen Square. Since the city gate cannot be entered during the National Day, the entrance is to enter Zhongshan Park. Go straight ahead to reach the Meridian Gate. What I want to explain here is that during the National Day, the Meridian Gate subway station is closed and you cannot travel.

The shape of the 70th anniversary is very conspicuous, celebrating the 70th birthday of the motherland.

In front of the great Tiananmen Square

Did you see that they are all human

The rare treasures in the Treasure Hall are so beautiful

Clock Museum: Clocks can go back to the end, but people can never go back to yesterday.

After coming out of the back garden, we arrive at Shenwumen, and we stop on the tower, and the whole imperial city comes into view, the solemn and sacred Forbidden City, from beginning to end.

The sun is very strong all day long, and the sky is really foggy. I hope to have a good blue sky next time.

C Yuanmingyuan Ruins Park: remember the history, the royal garden of the Qing Dynasty destroyed by the war.

The Old Summer Palace is located in the north of Haidian District in the western suburbs of Beijing. It is a royal camp built by the emperors of the Five Dynasties of the Qing Dynasty. It has been dubbed "the garden of ten thousand gardens", "the model of world gardens", "Oriental Versailles Palace" and many other good names by the world. Yuanmingyuan consists of three gardens: Yuanmingyuan, Changchun Garden and Qichun Garden.

The Yuanmingyuan, the royal imperial garden, is alive with water, and the lotus on the water is the soul of the Yuanmingyuan in summer. After decades of operation and construction, the lotus planting area in today's Yuanmingyuan Ruins Park totals more than 1,000 mu, with nearly 400 varieties.

The Old Summer Palace was once famous all over the world for its grand geographical scale, outstanding construction skills, exquisite architectural scenery, rich cultural collections and profound national cultural connotations. Garden of gardens". Unfortunately, this world-famous garden was brutally plundered and burned by the British and French allied forces in October 1860. After that, it experienced countless destructions and plunders, and a generation of famous gardens was finally reduced to ruins. After the baptism of blood and fire, the Old Summer Palace is like an annals of modern Chinese history, with shocking value. Standing in front of the broken rocks and pillars of the Western Building, people seem to hear the cry of history.

The Dashuifa Site is part of Xiyanglou, European Palaces in the Old Summer Palace in Beijing. The main scene of Xiyanglou Scenic Area is the artificial fountain, which was called "Water Method" at that time. It is characterized by large number, great momentum and strange conception. It mainly forms three large-scale fountain groups of Harmonious Interest, Haiyan Hall and Dashuifa, which are quite special and the essence of Chinese and Western culture. Dashuifa is adjacent to Haiyan Hall in the west, and at the intersection of the north-south axis of Changchun Garden and the east-west axis of Xiyang Building, it is the most spectacular European-style fountain landscape in the garden. In 1860, when the British and French allied forces invaded Beijing, they ravaged the Old Summer Palace, among which the British army set fire to it. Today only a few marble pillars of Dashuifa and Yuanyingguan stand there, recording the heinous crimes of the British and French allied forces destroying Chinese culture. .

Qichun Garden, also known as "Wanchun Garden", consists of Zhuyuan, Hanhui Garden, Xishuang Village, and the northern half of Chunhe Garden. It was once one of the main places where Emperor Jiaqing lived in the garden for many years. After Daoguang , mainly as the residence of the empress dowagers and concubines. There are many small scenic spots in the park, which is a large collection of small waterscape gardens.

Today, Qichun Garden is the main site of the annual lotus festival in Yuanmingyuan. There are large lotus flowers planted on the water surface in the garden. In midsummer, the lotus flowers are in full bloom, and the whole Yichun Garden is full of purples and reds. It is also a good experience to row a cruise ship and walk through the lotus leaves.

The scenery of Yuanmingyuan is especially beautiful when it is sunny after the rain.

E Temple of Heaven: The sun is just right, and heaven and matter are one

Temple of Heaven, in the south of Beijing. Covering an area of ​​about 2.73 million square meters. The Temple of Heaven was first built in the eighteenth year of Yongle in the Ming Dynasty (1420), and was rebuilt during the Qianlong and Guangxu periods of the Qing Dynasty. It was the place where the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties worshiped the heaven and prayed for a good harvest. The Temple of Heaven is the general name of the two altars of praying valley and round mound. It is surrounded by two altar walls and divides the altar domain into two parts, the inner and outer altars, both of which are south and north.

On the west side of the cypress forest of the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests in the Temple of Heaven Park is the largest lilac forest in Beijing, covering an area of ​​more than 6,000 square meters and containing more than 200 clove trees. Every April, the flowers are fragrant and become a highlight of Tiantan Park. The Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest is the central building of the Altar of Prayer for Good Harvest. It is a wooden structure with a round pointed roof and triple blue glazed tile eaves.

The Circular Mound Altar complex is located at the southern end of the central axis. It is an altar for the emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties to offer sacrifices to the God of Heaven. To the north of the Circular Mound Altar is the Imperial Vault of Heaven. The Prayer Valley Altar is located at the northern end of the central axis. The main building is the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. In the altar there are also buildings such as the Prayer Gate for Good Harvests, the Hall of Emperor Gan, the East and West Side Halls, the Burnt Wood Stove, the Huan, and the Brick Gate. The ancillary buildings include 72 rooms and a divine kitchen , Sacrifice Pavilion, etc. Most of the ancillary buildings of the Circular Mound Altar and the Prayer Valley Altar are in the east. This layout makes the western part of the Temple of Heaven open. On the south side of the West Tianmen of the Inner Altar, there is a palace city surrounded by Hao, named "Zhai Palace", which is the palace where the emperor lived during the "fasting" period before offering sacrifices.

Entering through the south gate, there are towering trees on both sides. Here are all old trees, planted in the Qing Dynasty. When the flowers bloom, each tree is very large and the shape of the tree is beautiful.

Eating in Beijing, crowds of people in Nanluoguxiang

Nanluoguxiang is located in the center of Beijing. It is an alley that combines petty bourgeoisie sentiment and old Beijing charm. It is also one of Beijing's fashion landmarks. There are a lot of literary and artistic specialty shops here, as well as a wide variety of snacks. Young people, especially literary and artistic youths, often regard this place as a must-choice place to visit Beijing.

The ancient buildings in the old hutong turn into the hutongs on both sides of the main street, and there are many fewer tourists. The old houses tell the history of old Beijing. There are Senggelinqin Palace of the Qing Dynasty; the former residence of the last empress Wanrong; Keyuan, which imitates the architectural style of Jiangnan gardens, etc.

Transportation: Get off at Nanluoguxiang Station of Metro Line 6 and Line 8. Take the bus and get off at Luoguxiang Station.

Eating in Beijing: The special snacks in Huguo Temple are even more memorable.

Beijing Roast Duck: Bianyifang (a characteristic century-old restaurant)

Dong Laishun: When you come to Beijing, you must have mutton and hot pot

Beijing's five-day four-night tour itinerary:

DAY1: departure→hotel check-in→roast duck walk (walk around Yuetan Park)

The high-speed train at 9:00 a.m. departs on time from Hangzhou Railway Station → destination Beijing South Railway Station. Arrive in Beijing around 3:00 pm. Directly take the subway at Beijing South Railway Station and transfer to Line 2, get off at Jishuitan Subway Station, and walk 300 meters to the hotel. In the evening, I went to Siji Minfu Roast Duck Restaurant (I heard that it is an Internet celebrity spot) for dinner, but it turned out to be very crowded. Later, I went to Beijing's time-honored Bianyifang and found that the taste was also good. Recommended to go.

DAY2: Tiananmen Square → Zhongshan Park → Forbidden City → Donglaishun Hot Pot

It's the National Day, so you can imagine how many people there are. It takes half a day to queue up to enter Tiananmen Square, then enter from Zhongshan Park, and walk all the way to the Meridian Gate to enter the Forbidden City. Those who buy tickets in advance just need to swipe their ID cards. There are also a lot of people in the watch hall and treasure hall in the Forbidden City, and you need to buy an additional ticket, 10 yuan for each hall. From entering the Meridian Gate to exiting the Shenwu Gate, it will take at least 5 hours if you choose to travel slowly. You can bring food in advance, or you can eat in the Forbidden City and so on. The opposite of Shenwumen is Jingshan Park, where you can climb the mountain and overlook the whole landscape.

After coming out of the Forbidden City, take the bus back to the hotel, and after a break, go to Donglaishun hot pot. The service attitude is really good, but the price is relatively expensive. Three adults and one child ate more than 600 yuan.

DAY3: Badaling Great Wall → Huguosi Pedestrian Street

I originally wanted to take the 877 bus to the Great Wall, but I was afraid that there would be no space when I came, and I had to bring children, so I bought a bus ticket and tickets. During the National Day period, the traffic was really congested. It usually took one and a half hours to start at ten o’clock in the morning and arrive at the Great Wall at two o’clock in the afternoon. After visiting the Great Wall for three hours, it is probably unrealistic to climb up directly from the bottom. Let’s take the cable car directly to the North Seventh, and then climbed to Beiba. Many people climbed up along the way, passing Haohan Slope.

DAY4: Old Summer Palace → Tsinghua University, Peking University → Nanluoguxiang

Take the subway directly to Yuanmingyuan. It rained heavily in the morning, but there were still many people. At noon, the rain stopped, and only the wreckage remained in the royal garden. It was very silent to look at. Now it has been repaired a lot. There are large lotus flowers, and the scenery is still good. . Enter from the south gate, exit from the south gate, and then walk 500 meters to Tsinghua University. You need to make an appointment in advance to enter, otherwise you can only take pictures at the gate. The same goes for Peking University. The subway station is right in front of Peking University, so the transportation is really convenient.

I went to Nanluoguxiang in the evening and experienced the feeling of the alley. The food is about the same. I recommend candied haws.

DAY5: Temple of Heaven → Beijing South Railway Station → go home

Today is the last day. Since the bus is at three o'clock in the afternoon, I arranged to go to the Temple of Heaven Park in the morning. Today's weather is very good. The Temple of Heaven Park is very suitable for viewing when the weather is sunny and sunny.

From the south gate, you can take a taxi to Beijing South Railway Station, which takes about ten minutes. There are many taxis at the gate.

Beijing South Railway Station should be relatively small, but there are also a lot of food and specialty shops, so you can buy whatever you want.


1. It is best to choose accommodation within the Second Ring Road. Book a hotel in advance, and you can choose a suitable price. Be sure to choose a place with well-developed transportation. Our accommodation is near Jishuitan subway station. There are supermarkets, shopping malls and buses around, so it is very convenient to travel.
2. When traveling in Beijing in October, the weather will be cold in the morning and evening, so you should bring a coat.
3. When traveling in Beijing, download "Yitongxing" by subway, and download "Beijing Public Transport" by bus, and just swipe the QR code to get on and off the bus, which is very convenient.
4. Buy tickets in advance for the Forbidden City and the Great Wall in Beijing. Any other museum science and technology museums need to make an appointment in advance, do not choose temporarily.

Every trip is actually to let yourself see places you have never been to, feel more cultures, and feel the beauty of this world.
