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.

The Apricot was first cultivated in India in about 3000 BC. It is said that apricot had a wide native range including Armenia, Caucasus, the Himalaya, China and Japan. The flowers have five white to pinkish petals 2–4.5 cm in diameter; they are produced singly or in pairs in early spring. The fruit is a drupe likening to a small peach, 1.5–2.5 cm diameter from yellow to orange. The single seed is enclosed in a hard stony shell. The Chinese people often associate the apricot with education and medicine. For example, the classical word "Apricot Altar" which means "educational circle", is still widely used in written language. About 2500 years ago, the greatest Chinese scholar -Confucius often taught his students among the wood of apricot used as a forum, hence"Apricot Altar".

Pick up from your midtown hotel in Beijing around 9:00am and head to Phoenix Ridge Scenic Area ( Beijing Fenghuangling Nature Park ). It is situated in the northwest of Beijing’s Haidian District, about 51 kilometers from the Tiananmen Square and 23 kilometers from the Summer Palace. It is well known as "small "Mt.Huangshan" west of Beijing. It is an ideal place for spring outing, summer escape, autumn fruit picking and winter snow palying. You will see the flowers of apricot at the Apricot Garden of the Park. The apricot blossom festival activity is usually arranged at the beginning of April, lasts about 10 days.

After Chinese lunch, move on to the Summer Palace. we start the walking tour of the Summer Palace. Rated as a Unesco World Heritage Site, the Summer Palace is one of China's most famous gardens, where city-weary visitors can escape just as the Imperial Family did in the centuries before. Autumn brings a spectacular blaze of colour to the garden. Summer Palace has 10,000 trees that are more than 100 years old. The specimens include lacebark pines, willow trees, crab apple, peach trees and more. After the Summer Palace, return to your hotel in Beijing.
