Did a small group bus tour to The Sacred Walk of the Emperors, to a jade factory, to the section of The Great Wall called Mutianyu and then to a silk factory. The day was very hazy - don't know if it was smog or just haze, but we were about 60 km from Beiijing. It was very hard to see The Wall beyond about a kilometre away. The Wall stretches for over 5,000 Kms and was built to keep ...

This one was dreadful and we were stuck in a mass of shoving sullen Chinese for over half an hour while some bully in a military uniform with sunglasses and a megaphone barked at us.

... Emperor. The "city" is surrounded by walls up to 40m high, 20m thick with a 50m moat surrounding the wall! There was no way you were getting in uninvited in the past but now you can now gain entry for about £6 and could easily lose a whole day there. I'm sure we might have done just that were it not for both our ageing bodies contracting a serious case of Peking Knees, but more of that later. So what of our impressions of the Forbidden City. Well, it's certainly massive ...
