The Great Wall, the Forbidden City, roast duck, and alleys are all put together to form the appearance of Beijing. This trip to Beijing originated from a conversation between father and son one day before the summer vacation. The son ran over to his father and said, "Dad, let's go to Tiananmen Square this year!"
Dad asked suspiciously: "Why?"
The son looked at his father and said seriously: "Go to Tiananmen to watch the national flag raising. Next time the teacher asks which children have seen the national flag raising in Tiananmen, I can raise my hand."
Dad was stunned by his son's slightly naive reason for a moment.
Well, the little wish of the son will be fulfilled by the father. So there is this second season of Where Are We Going, Dad.

【Preparation before departure】
1. Air tickets: The so-called roads lead to the capital, you can choose a direct train to Beijing, or you can choose to fly from Taizhou, Ningbo, Hangzhou, Shanghai, etc. Although the bullet train is convenient, every time I think about the nearly 9 hours of driving time, I still feel faintly afraid, so I should choose the plane in the end. Consider two points: time and price. After many days of diving and recording on Ctrip and Qunar.com, I finally chose to fly from Shanghai to Beijing, and chose a large plane; the return journey is from Beijing to Hangzhou.
2. Hotel: After the air ticket is confirmed, it's the hotel's turn. As a big city, Beijing has hotels of all price ranges, and there are many choices. Considering the needs of travel, the convenience of transportation has become the first choice, combined with the main purpose of this trip, so the hotel is located near Nanluoguxiang.

Accommodation: Unnamed Courtyard Hotel

Comments: The alley outside made people feel quite broken, but it is really unique to go inside. The environment is elegant, chic and quiet. Rustic design, facilities are modern facilities. The towels and slippers are all sterilized in bags, and the soap and toiletries are very delicate. If you want to experience the Hutong culture in Beijing, you can try to live here. The transportation is convenient, just on the Shichahai Sea, so it is convenient to go anywhere. The attitude of the staff in the store is very good, the sisters at the front desk are very kind, especially Aunt Zu, who is very simple and enthusiastic, which really makes people feel at home! Praise!

The location is superior, it takes 5 minutes to reach Tiananmen Square, and it is very convenient to all surrounding attractions, very convenient.

3. Traffic in the city: Subway, the subway in Beijing is very convenient. It consists of 2 ring lines and other radial lines. Basically, you can get to the place you need by changing two trains. In fact, don’t stick too much to the subway. The car is also very convenient. For example, you can take the sightseeing line 1 from the north gate of the Forbidden City to the front gate, which is very characteristic of Beijing. If the bus and subway are not convenient, you can also choose a taxi or Didi.
4. Tickets: Since the tickets booked online are all with a fixed date, of course some of them can be refunded unconditionally, but some of them are conditional. Therefore, it is recommended that you can book tickets online on the same day or one day in advance, or buy tickets at the ticket office, because the prices of attractions in Beijing are the same whether you book tickets online or on site.
5. Others: Summer travel, heatstroke prevention is very important. Bring sun umbrellas, sun protection clothing, sunscreen, and hand-held small fans, and bring some essential heatstroke prevention medicines such as Rendan and Huoxiang Zhengqi Water.

High-speed rail has profoundly changed our travel and lifestyle. Because of its punctuality and safety, it has gradually impacted the aviation industry.

Based on the original basis, the high-speed rail has also continuously improved its services. Relying on QR codes and mobile technology, it has introduced functions such as scanning codes to order food, and promises to deliver meals within 30 minutes. When I wanted to try it that day, I was notified that the POS machine was malfunctioning, and I still had to go to the dining car to pick up the meal.

Fish-flavored shredded pork rice, 15 yuan, is enough to fill you up. Of course, the box lunch at this price will not be taken out by the flight attendants. You need to ask them. The box lunches that are actively sold are 40 yuan and 60 yuan, and the taste is so-so.

After more than 3 hours of driving, the train slowly entered Shanghai Hongqiao Station, and it was time for us to get off.

Since it is the first time to depart from Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station to Hongqiao Airport, the first phenomenon is that the subway can be reached by both Line 2 and Line 10. The distance of one station, the fare is 3 yuan, and there is a bus at Exit 3 (South) ticket sales. In fact, you can also see a small yellow car like this here. This is the express bus to and from the train station and the airport. The bus departs when it is full, 10 yuan per person, and it takes a few minutes to arrive, but the waiting time for customers will be longer .

Shanghai is the base camp of China Eastern Airlines. China Eastern Airlines has opened a Beijing-Shanghai special line at Hongqiao Airport, specializing in luggage check-in and boarding pass services on Island C. This time, Ctrip also presented a fast security check without queuing. In fact, Hongqiao Airport is much deserted than I imagined, and there are empty seats all over the place.

The current airports are also trying to improve customer experience, such as adding children's playgrounds, placing IPADs for passengers to surf the Internet, etc.

Although the weather in Shanghai is a bit gloomy today, the previous flight landed at Shanghai Hongqiao Airport on time. Could it be that today's flight can take off on time?

This time I took the Airbus A330, but due to the reasonable arrangement of the boarding sequence, the efficiency is also very high. There is a small screen behind each seat of the plane, as well as a mobile phone charging port, which provides entertainment systems such as flight routes, movies, music, games, etc. The experience is still great.

It is rare for the plane to depart on time. After the flight, the stewardess began to distribute meals and drinks on the plane. This flight meal has reached the standard of an international flight. I ordered a special meal of China Eastern Airlines - eel rice and a beef noodle. The taste is very good.

Shortly after dinner, the plane began to slowly descend. If you are lucky, you can also see a plane flying in the sky.

When I got off the plane, I encountered the Airbus A380 of China Southern Airlines, the largest passenger plane in the world. It is worth a try if you have the opportunity.

Gate 11 of the airport is the ticket office of the airport bus. For the specific route, please refer to

Starting from the airport, there was a lot of traffic at the beginning of the expressway, and it took only an hour to arrive at the south exit of Qianmen Street. As a result, I checked the navigation, and it was more than 2 kilometers away from the hotel I booked. Let's call Didi. Calling Didi cars in Beijing generally requires a queue, so reserve a good time, and it is best to place an order in advance. When we got to the room, the World Cup also started, and that night was Switzerland vs. Sweden.

Beijing has a strong history. When traveling in Beijing, the most popular sentence from the tour guide is "Three points depend on seeing, seven points depend on listening". What you see is quiet, but what you hear is moving. Take the Forbidden City as an example, what you see is its magnificence and momentum, but what you hear is the secret history. The first stop in Beijing starts from the Forbidden City. Tickets are booked on Ctrip one day in advance, and you can directly swipe your ID card to enter.

The Forbidden City implements a tour route from south to north. Enter from the Meridian Gate on the south side and exit from the Shenwu Gate on the north side. Following the flow of people, passing through the Tiananmen Gate, you will come to the Meridian Gate of the Forbidden City, which can be regarded as a formal tour of the Forbidden City. The itinerary of the entire Forbidden City takes at least 2 hours.

Standing on the gate of Taihe, looking back at the Meridian Gate.

Pass through the gate of Supreme Harmony, and you will find the Hall of Supreme Harmony in front of it. It is also the place where the emperor often goes to court to discuss state affairs in our TV dramas. My introduction to my son is whether the place where the emperor holds meetings is easy to understand.

The Hall of Supreme Harmony, commonly known as the Hall of Golden Luan, was the place where major celebrations were held in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Every year, the three major festivals of New Year's Day, Winter Solstice, and Longevity, as well as major events such as the emperor's enthronement, wedding, the appointment of a queen, the announcement of the ranking of Jinshi, and the expedition of famous generals are all held here.

Baohe Hall, in the Ming Dynasty, the emperor often changed clothes before the grand ceremony. In the Qing Dynasty, every New Year's Eve, the fifteenth day of the first lunar month, the emperor entertained the princes and ministers of ethnic minorities here.

Jiaotai Hall, formerly known as Zhongyuan Hall, means the intersection of heaven and earth, harmony of yin and yang. Therefore, Jiaotai Hall is located between Qianqing Palace (Heaven) and Kunning Palace (Earth).

Sundial: A timer for measuring the sun and setting the time in ancient China.

This is the imperial garden.

The turret of the Forbidden City was originally thought to be a corner of a park. Turn right at the north exit of the Forbidden City, and you will see the beautiful turret.

After passing the turret and walking forward for a short time, you can see Beijing's sightseeing line 1, a very retro car, and a tour guide on the car to explain, passing Wangfujing, Qianmen, etc.

After returning to the hotel for a rest at noon, I called Didi and took a taxi to Prince Kung’s Mansion. Since the alley near Prince Gong’s Mansion was relatively small, the car stopped at the intersection, but there was not much walking. This indicates the entrance to the landscape, not the ticket office.

There are many rickshaws at the entrance of Prince Gong’s Mansion to pull tourists around the hutong. It is said that it is a regular company. The price depends on how many tourists there are. You can negotiate the price. The master will tell you some stories about the hutong along the way, so you can experience it.

Beijing's subway stations do not have modern splendor, only historical simplicity.

Before night falls, the Monument to the People's Heroes stands solemnly on Tiananmen Square.

Watch the flag lowering ceremony

Let the traffic flow and the flow of people shuttling, how many historical baptisms Tiananmen has experienced.

When the lights came on, Tiananmen Square also put on a gorgeous coat. Against the backdrop of the fountain, it became less solemn and more gorgeous.

On this day, in order to watch the national flag raising, I picked up my son from the bed at 3:30, and the security check began at around 4 o'clock. Tourists who watched the national flag raising flocked to Tiananmen Square from all directions. It took about 20 minutes to pass the security check, and we arrived at the square. , it was about 4:30. At that time, the square was crowded with people, and the central position had already been occupied. There is also a slightly forward position on both sides. Please refer to this https://richurimo.51240.com/beijing__richurimo/ for specific flag-raising time.

After watching the national flag raising, the tourists all took photos in the square, and we have already started the next stop, the Great Wall. According to the egg donation at night, you can go to Xizhimen to take S2 ​​or take 877 to Deshengmen. When I arrived at the subway station, I found that the first subway hadn’t arrived yet, and it would take 5:20, so I planned to take a Didi to Deshengmen on Chang’an Avenue. Shengmen, I heard that there is a long queue for S2 going to the Great Wall, and it is far from the Great Wall scenic spot. When we passed Tiananmen Square and came to Tiananmen West Bus Station, we found that there was a tourist bus on the stop sign. Later, I heard that it was newly opened. From the end of the flag-raising ceremony to 11:00 am, half an hour and a half bus, about 1 Hours ~ 1.5 hours, the first stop is Qianmen. Around 6 o'clock, there will be a staff member with a walkie-talkie to direct the tourists to line up, ask how many seats are needed, and contact the driver for the departure time, etc., 20 people per person.

Passing through Shanhaiguan on the way, you can also see the Great Wall of Water, and the famous Beijing-Zhangjiakou Railway. The enthusiastic tour guide also introduced along the way.

Since I went out early, breakfast was settled at the foot of the Great Wall. One fried egg, one serving of noodles and soy milk cost 70 yuan, which is seriously bad.

The cable car on the back mountain of the Great Wall ascends to the city entrance. Tickets and cable car tickets booked online are collected after entering the security check here.

The shuttle bus between the front mountain and the back mountain returns to the station.

From the back mountain, you can take the cable car directly to the north sixth floor and the north seventh floor, go up to the highest north eighth floor, go down to the north sixth floor, and take the cableway to the front mountain on the north fifth floor. You can choose two round-trip tickets. kind of transportation.

The medals my son bought by himself are 20 yuan, and there are 10 yuan and 30 yuan. The time and name will be engraved on the medal, which is quite commemorative.

After a night's rest, the energy is back, and today's destination is the Summer Palace. Depart from Qianmen, take Line 2 to Xuanwumen, transfer to Line 4 to Beigongmen Station, buy a ticket to enter the Longevity Hill of the Summer Palace. This time on a Mirinda painted car.

Entering the landscape, you can see Suzhou Street located in Houhu, which is a shopping street built in imitation of Jiangnan Water Town. Because you have to buy tickets separately, you gave up.

Wanshou Mountain is the seventh year of Hongzhi in the Ming Dynasty (1494) when Xiaozong's wet nurse helped his wife, Luo Shi, to build a garden and quiet temple in front of the mountain. In the fifteenth year of Qianlong (1750), the Great Repayment and Yanshou Temple was built at the former site of Yuanjing Temple to celebrate the 60th birthday of the Empress Dowager. The following year the mountain was renamed Longevity Hill. The earthwork for developing Kunming Lake will be piled up on the mountain according to the original layout, so that the east and west slopes are gentle and symmetrical, and become the main body of the whole garden. The building complex is built against the mountain, and the existing ones were rebuilt by Empress Dowager Cixi after they were burned down by the British and French allied forces. From the "Yunhui Yuyu" archway at the foot of the mountain, through the Paiyun Gate, the Second Palace Gate, the Paiyun Hall, the Dehui Hall, and the Foxiang Pavilion, to the wisdom sea at the top of the mountain, forming a central axis that rises layer by layer.

Longevity Hill overlooks the Seven-Arch Bridge.

Longevity Hill in summer.

The west gate of Peking University, because there are activities on the campus, so I declined to visit. I can only take a closer look outside. It is said that it will be opened after July 15. At the gate, a group of summer camp organized by elementary school students just happened to come here to take pictures.

Walk from the west gate of Peking University to the Old Summer Palace, a landscape at the entrance of the Old Summer Palace.

What we imagine is that the feature of Yuanmingyuan is the lotus. There are all kinds of lotus varieties in the ten thousand mu lotus. In summer, a lotus photography competition is held. When you are tired from walking, you can spend 15 yuan to feel the disembarkation in the ten thousand mu lotus. The shuttle scene.

The Dashui method is also the essence of the Old Summer Palace scenic spot. It is a landscape water feature dominated by stone niche buildings, which was later burned down when the Eight-Power Allied Forces invaded China.

Turn right after coming out of the East Gate of Yuanmingyuan, and you will see an overpass after a short walk. This is the bus station of Te 4. He basically travels along the subway lines 2 and 4.

Today, it was originally arranged to visit the Mao Zedong Memorial Hall first, but because it was the weekend, the tourists on Tiananmen Square were super crowded, and before entering the memorial hall, you need to go to the designated area on the east side of the memorial hall to store things, including cameras, etc. are not allowed to carry Entering, so I went directly to the National Science and Technology Museum. Today's travel is still the subway, first take Line 2 at Gulou Street, transfer to Line 8 and get off at Forest Park.
As the transfer station between Line 2 and Building 8, Gulou Street has a relatively concentrated flow of people, but the ceiling lights on the platform are very distinctive, like big drums inlaid on the top.

The decoration of the Forest Park Station is also very particular. The shapes of trees are connected together on the top, and LED lights are scattered and dotted. Follow the signs to get out of the station. At the exit of the subway, there is a connecting battery car to and from the National Science and Technology Museum. It costs 5 yuan for a one-way trip and ends at about 5:00 p.m.

One of the largest science and technology museums in China, even so, the flow of people on weekends and summer vacations still squeezes the halls inside the museum. There are three main parts in the country. One is the Science and Technology Paradise. When you enter the gate to the left, you need to sell tickets separately. It seems that children also need tickets; Tickets for the main hall can be purchased with Alipay or WeChat, and you can directly swipe your ID card to enter, or you can pick up the ticket on the self-service device with your ID card, or you can buy it at the window.

The fan car is a kind of machine that can generate wind, also known as the fan. It was invented in the Han Dynasty and was driven by human power for cleaning grain.

Traditional Chinese medicine carries the experience and theoretical knowledge of the ancient Chinese people's struggle against diseases. Based on the theory of yin and yang and the five elements, it explores the etiology, disease, and so on through the method of "seeing, hearing, asking, and feeling". The science and technology museum displays traditional pharmacies, acupuncture and moxibustion tools, and you can also experience traditional Chinese medicine techniques such as pulse diagnosis.

The seismograph is a masterpiece handed down from generation to generation created by Zhang Heng, a Chinese scientist in the Eastern Han Dynasty. The seismograph has eight orientations, and each orientation has a dragon head with a dragon ball in its mouth, and a toad corresponds to it under each dragon head. If there is an earthquake on any side, the dragon ball contained in the dragon mouth in that direction will fall into the toad's mouth, so that the direction of the earthquake can be measured.

There is a restaurant on the first basement floor of the Science and Technology Museum. Passengers can put a stamp on their hands at the exit of the Science and Technology Museum, and they can return with the stamp on the same day. The restaurant adopts the model of a gourmet city. Buy a recharge card before dining. A card costs 200 yuan, including a deposit of 50 yuan. The card can be refunded after eating. One meat and two vegetarian set meals, fried rice noodles, fried rice, etc. are all priced at 20 yuan, and beverages such as cola and plum juice are all priced at 5 yuan.

It was about 12:40 after lunch, so I returned to the Science and Technology Museum, because there were three live performances on the first floor from 12:30, which were rubbing performances, movable type printing performances and papermaking performances. In fact, there are many related performances and experience activities in the museum, and tourists can arrange their time reasonably according to their own preferences.

Shenzhou-1 spacecraft return capsule (physical object): Shenzhou-1 spacecraft is China's first unmanned experimental spacecraft. It was launched at the Jiuquan Space Launch Site in the early morning of November 11, 1999, and was used for the subsequent launch and return of Shenzhou-5. Foundation.

Dongfanghong-4 satellite (model) is a new generation of large-scale communication satellite platform in China. It has the characteristics of high power, strong carrying capacity and long service life. It can be used to build large-capacity communication broadcasting, video/audio live broadcast, tracking and data center Satellites such as relay and regional mobile communications.

To simulate rocket launch, passengers can assemble the rocket model on the console and place it in the designated position, and then the rocket launch can be started.

The YF-77 rocket engine is a high-thrust hydrogen-oxygen engine developed for the first-stage core of the new generation of large launch vehicle Long March 5. After ten years of hard research, all key engine technologies have been broken through.

The Tiangong-1 space laboratory model was launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in September 2011. The aircraft has a total length of 10.4 meters and a maximum diameter of 3.35 meters. And in June 2013, it successfully docked with the Shenzhou-8 spacecraft, Shenzhou-9 spacecraft and Shenzhou-10 spacecraft.

The experimental cabin also shows tourists the scene inside the cabin. The big screen shows the scene of astronauts giving lectures in space. Inside, there are sleeping bags, food and supplies for space experiments conducted by astronauts. There are also astronauts used to operate and monitor the spacecraft. Various instruments of flight.

The robot dancing performance is one of the children's favorite shows. Although it was almost over when we arrived, it was also on the inner three floors and the outer three floors.

The cockpit, which simulates the flight of an airplane, is also one of the most popular scenes for children. Facing the complex and various instruments, the children are excited, but also feel that it is not easy to be a pilot.

In addition to high-tech spaceships and rockets, this area in the science and technology museum is closer to our lives. The history of the development of washing machines and the working principle of vacuum cleaners make children deeply feel that technology and technological progress are all around us.

The Science and Technology Museum is about to close, and there is heavy rain in the sky. At this time, Didi also needs to wait for a long time. Although the wait was a bit long, I got an Accord. It takes about ten minutes from the Science and Technology Museum to the Beijing Theater. After picking up the tickets, follow the navigation to go to the opposite shopping mall for dinner. In fact, this shopping mall is almost closed, and only about half of the shops in the underground food court are open. The positioning of the catering is not high, and the price is average.

Every year, or every day, Beijing will stage countless performances of various kinds. You can check and buy tickets through Damai.com, Yongle.com or Taopiaopiao, but you need to pay attention to the ticket collection location. This time we purchased the children's play of the Submarine Small Column through Damai.com. The performance started at 7 o'clock, and the ticket was checked in half an hour in advance.

After the performance, the rain became heavier, and the original trip to the Bird's Nest and Water Cube had to be cancelled. Or take a taxi to the subway station first, and then go back to the hotel. Due to the late check-in time, the originally booked room type is no longer available, and was fortunately upgraded. Simple, refreshing, and a little romantic, the room is also equipped with an air purifier, especially in the north where the air is not good. When booking a hotel in Beijing, you need to pay special attention to whether the low-priced room is in the basement or has no windows or inner windows.

The airport line in Beijing has a lot of space and spacious seats. It takes about 40 minutes to get from Dongzhimen to T2. On the way, it will pass Sanyuanqiao Station and T3 Terminal. At Dongzhimen, you can transfer to Line 2 and so on.

The passenger service center in the arrival hall of the airport is where you can sell, recharge and refund the bus IC card. The card deposit is 20 yuan, and the first recharge is 20 yuan. The deposit can be returned when the card is returned.

Before the plane landed at Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport, overlooking the scenery around the airport, it was like coming to a foreign town. The well-developed high-speed, fast-moving bullet trains and landing planes weave into the fast transportation network in China today.
