On the last leg of our trip, my  brother and i took the bullet train from Shanghai to Beijing which was approximately four hours. The train ride was surprisingly comfortable and relaxing. when we finally did get to Beijing, I was only interested in seeing historic sites like the Temple of Heaven, the great wall, and the forbidding city. here are some photos of my time in Beijing.

At the Temple of Heavens.

I saw these guys playing some really beautiful traditional folk music.

Tiananmen Square

The Forbidding city

For 50 Yuan i got to dress up as an ancient Chinese General.

At the great wall of China, this was a dream come true for me.

I really like Shanghai,the people are friendly , the city is modern, clean, beautiful, and really full of life. Here are some pictures of my time in this beautiful city.

The city financial district, the oriental pearl tower can be seen in the background.

The tour bus was the best way to see the city

You cannot come to China and not get a Picture of Chairman Mao himself..

This guy walk up to me and ask if he could get a picture with me.....

Shanghai is hands down one of my favorite cities in the world.
