Our flight form Shanghai to Beijing was delayed 1 hour and experienced some bad turbulance on the flight. After ariving at the Beijing airport, there was a 25 minute wait for the steps to arrive and then a 10 minute bus ride to the terminals. Either the Beijing airport is huge or the plane landed at the wrong airport!!!
It takes a very fit person to travel the streets and tourist attractions of Beijing. And thats not me on this trip!! This place is huge. It would be easy to spend a week in this city and still not see all the attraction it has to offer.
The real tourist 🙂
Beijing Bell Tower.
The Bell Tower was used as a time keeping device.
Just like modern clock towers.
The bell its self has a height of 5.55m a diamater of 3.4m and ranges in thickness of 120mm to 245mm
The weight of the bell is 63 ton!
