We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Tips on Spring Flower Viewing in Beijing
1. Flower viewing season
The spring flower season peaks between later March and mid-May in Beijing. Its bloom depends on the temperature. Some years are earlier or later than others. If there has been a steady flow of cold fronts during the winter, then it is likely to be a better flower season. Of course, spring temperatures are also very important. If it heats up too quickly then the early visitors have a great time in viewing spring flowers under the sunshine but the flowers do not last very long. For the exact flower viewing time for any particular flower, please contact your trip advisors in Beijing.

2. Flower viewing time in a Day
The flowers are at their best between 11:00am and 16:00pm in the afternoon so there is unnecessary to rush out for the spot for the flower viewing straight after breakfast unless you have some other attractions to see before you get to the flower area.

3. No rainy weather for flower viewing
The flowers will not smile in heavily overcast or rainy weather so you should arrange your day trips to travel other attractions on such days. Keep this fact in mind when design your own trips in Beijing.

4. Flowers are facing you
The flower watching is better better if you travel with the sun behind you so that the flowers are facing you. So when arranging your daily trip, try to travel in a western direction in the morning, southern during the day and eastern in the afternoon.
