The Forbidden City is grand. It was the imperial palace and residence for Chinese emperors and their concubines. The whole complex is huge so it’s appropriate to call it a "city" instead of a "palace".
My friend took me a tea house and ordered me this pretty-looking rosebud tea. It tasted good too.
Dadong is where you should go in Beijing to try the authentic Peking duck dish. They prepared it right next to our table which was interesting to watch. If you have never tried Peking duck, you are missing out on life 😉.
A lot of stairs to climb - but we made it to the top of Badaling! The view was totally worth it!
