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.
