We went to the Beijing Red Theatre to see the Shaolin Monks perform. These guys are amazing. Unfortunately photos were not allowed during the show.
These were taken in the park next to the Forbidden City. Im not sure what the story is. Something i will have to look up. There are so many parks and historic sites all related to the Forbidden City, its hard to keep track of what we have seen and their relevance.
Beijing 2008 Olympics. Just had to slip this one in….
Being the host of the 2008 Olympics im am very surprised how far behind Beijing is for catering for western tourists. From purchasing tickets to enter tourist attraction to catching public transport , it is all hard work for people that cant read Chinese or speak the language. The amazing historic attraction definitely make up for this though.
