First full alone day in Beijing, China but I’m sure I am alone? No! In travel you never alone and especially in a hostel with 8 people in one room 🙂
There I met there my new friends, which we exchanged travel knowledge and sometimes we made together trip to explore the city.
I choose my hostel “Happy Dragon. Saga Youth Hostel” is located in a good place, in the city center and close to the Forbidden City.
Address of my hostel: No.9 Shijia Hutong Chao Nei Nan Xiao Jie, Dongcheng, Pekin
Forbidden City – old big palace Ming dynasty. This place makes a lot of impressions and good to remember place is big and if you wanna see everything – plan your trip to this place for minimum 4 hours and buy water outside (will be cheaper).
Forbidden City webpage: dpm.org.cn (there is EN language)
Like you save on photo above I saw buildings inside Jingshan Park from Forbidden City, so I went there and this was a good decision because park was beautiful and from this mountain was beautiful view for the whole city and I had opportunity to see how big is Forbidden City from this perspective.
Ticket cost only 2 RMB
Wangfujing Catholic Church
On they way back to the hostel I found one of two old Catholic churches in Beijing. It was surprised for me in country where catholic is not popular.
Snacks, snacks, snacks … where is spider?
End of day I spend with my two new friends (which I greetings) they showed me this place.
Place is made for tourist with food – special snacks 🙂 Every day you find there something new to the try.
