Beijing is such an incredibly amazing city to visit. In the depth of winter it was freezing, but also very beautiful. My husband loved the huge towering brutalist buildings that line Tiananmen Square, and I loved the (just as imposing) imperial gates, towers and forts dotted throughout the city. We both loved hiking the Great Wall. Seeing it in real life is a whole different kind of magic.
I can't even name all the beautiful things I loved most about Beijing. It is an extraordinary place.
