A tale of two worlds
I took this picture at Jinshanling Great Wall on January 15, 2017. It was a sunny day the day before yesterday (January 14, 2017), but I got up late. Looking outside my window, I saw a cloudless sky, which meant warmth and dynamism. I had been speaking of going to the Great Wall at Jinshanling (金山嶺) between Beijing and Hebei province ’s Luanping county but weather had been not suitable for outdoor activities until this Saturday. I decided to visit the Great Wall and so prepared ...

A sleepless water town crouching at the foot of the Great Wall
Sleepless in Seattle has once climbed onto my brain and I really wanted to have a wonderful experience of a city that never sleeps. Now I am in Beijing and there are no films saying Beijing is such a city. It seems that my dream cannot come true if I stay here all the time. It may not be so. Perhaps Gubei Water Town located in Miyun District is such a place for me. In one of Beijing’s suburban districts---Miyun, there is a newly built entertainment park named Gubei Water Town, where ...

My life and the sea
I was born on the little known Weihe River Plain (渭河平原) in Shaanxi province in central China. Never before had I climbed a mountain or even seen a real mountain just a few miles away from me, until I enrolled in Xi’an Fanyi (Translating and Interpreting) University located at the foot of a great mountain with an altitude of over 2,000 meters. Before entering the university, I read lots of articles and stories about mountains and so I dreamed of seeing one and standing on top of it someday. ...

Share What to do during the 2016 National Day holiday?
2016-9-29 22:20
If you are now working in China or staying with your Chinese friends, you will have a seven-day holiday in the country. How to reasonably deal with the seven days when you don’t have to work? I think you still have a few better choices if you don’t want to do what others do. Anyway, what can you do to make the seven days meaningful? 1. Travel In China, people usually don’t have very long holidays for them to travel in a year, and the National Day holiday seems to be the only time for ...

The Phoenix Ridge of Beijing
In Beijing, summer is gradually leaving us and autumn is pacing into into our life. Although it is still a bit hot at noon, it is already cool in the morning and afternoon. This is the early autumn of Beijing. The Phoenix Ridge during this season looks stunningly gorgeous, especially when you visit it under the cloudless sky. One of best friends and I visited this park on last Saturday (Sept. 3), hoping to experience the beautiful scenery of it under a cloudless sky. We did, out of gr ...

An Evening Tour of Shichahai, Beijing
You might have heard that Shichahai is one of the best places to visit as night falls, but have you ever been there before? Probably not. I was like you before one of my best friends having a business trip in Beijing asked me to suggest one evening touring site for him. Yes, the first site that flashed across my mind was Shichahai, where I visited a few times but never experienced the evening view of it. It was like a stupid suggestion, but our evening stroll finally turned the stupid suggestio ...

A park, many stories
Speaking of the most attractive and fascinating tourist attractions in Beijing, you will immediately think of the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven. But have you realized that the park behind the Forbidden City is a place even more worth exploring because of its interesting and sad stories happened in the past?

Purely White Snow at Badaling Great Wall
I heard there would be snowing in Beijing on Friday from my colleagues, and so I headed for the Badaling section of the Great Wall on Saturday. The urban areas of Beijing were as dry or wet as ever, but the season changed as the Shuttle Bus No. 919 pulled into the boundary of Yanqing county on the outskirts of Beijing. Although blocked by so much inconvenience because of the snowfall, I finally arrived at Badaling, the place to appreciate the snow blanketing the mountain ranges and the Great Wal ...

The Phoenix Ridge under the Blue Sky
I never thought I would visit the Phoenix Ridge until one of my good friends invited me to tour the park in Haidian District (Beijing) with her on an amazing sunny day. The Phoenix Ridge is also famous for red leaves and beautiful autumn, but we didn’t encounter many red leaf trees on Saturday (Oct. 30, 2015). Yet, the ridge still impressed me and my friend although red leaves didn’t often swarm into our eyes. The following are some of the pictures I shot with my mobile during my trip to the ...

  • The distance between today and yesterday 2018-2-14 22:27

    I was in Zhejiang when I saw a street opera like this. It was very interesting to see a Chinese opera on the street for free. There was a pretty big crowd there, but I could still see the play. It was days like this that made the Chinese culture so interesting to me. Unfortunately I didn't get to share it with anyone, this was before I used Wechat. I liked how you could enjoy special treats for only 1 or 2 yuan, and even gamble a little bit.
