This week, I had a visit to the Gubeikou Great Wall in Huairou District Beijing with my friend Sophia Yu. It is really amazing experience for me because I never expect the flower trees in Great Wall.
The great wall itself is fantastic, the walls, battlements and towers are lofty and superior. The guide Linda for chinaholidays introduced the history of Gubeikou to us which could be dated back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It is firstly built for military defense and now has been protected as one of the most important attractions and UNESCO sites in Beijing. We had a good time on the great wall and enjoy the climbing, fresh air and blue sky in the suburb area. The pink cherry flower blooming along the both sides of great wall is a big surprise for me, as I never imagine such a gift! Obviously, I though the great wall area was bleak and desolated, but this time when I came to Huairou I found it was really a paradise! The pink flower is just like pink cloud or a romantic dream. All the girls on the great wall were so excited and kept taking photos!
I truly had a good time on the Gubeikou great wall!
