Beijing is one of the travel destination in my bucket list, because of its historical value and iconic landmarks like the Forbidden City and Great Wall of China. The most famous ones are the Forbidden City and Great wall of China. It’s hard to imagine how picturesque the place it is. When I was there, it’s an jaw-dropping experience as the architecture is pure magnificent. It’s definitely one of the greatest man-made buildings of all time.

Due to historical conflicts, Great Wall of China is divided in few different sections. Beijing is one of the famous city which has close proximity to multiple different sections of Great Wall. Each offering different kind of view. I opted the a section call Jin Shan Ling (金山岭）which is further away from the city, with less crowded people.
