Before heading off to China, I didn’t know what to expect. There were so many things going on in my head about things I heard; some positive, some negative. But I did not let that discourage me. I’ve always been an extremely adventurous person, so overall I was more excited than anything. The 14 hour flight may have been the thing I stressed out about the most, but it turned out better than I expected because I was able to sleep most of the time 🙂
Once we finally arrived in Beijing, my adrenaline level was going crazy! The airport was so confusing. We couldn’t find anyone that spoke English and we began to get slightly frustrated. I am from Kansas City, Missouri, a pretty big city in Missouri but of course Beijing is much bigger. As massive and confusing as my hometown airport is, I find it to be much more simple after my experience in the Beijing airport.
The hotel we stayed in was amazing, the breakfast buffet was probably my favorite. The area was very beautiful and there were many things to do. Throughout the week out tour guide took us to many popular tourist attractions such as the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square and the Temple of Heaven just to name a few. I’d say those were my favorites. My advice would be to get out and do as much as possible whenever you get the chance. Don’t be afraid to explore. #JustGoWithIt 🙂
