Last weekend, Kyle and I took a private tour of some of the big tourist attractions in Beijing. We normally don’t go for private tours, but this one taught you how to use the Beijing subway system; a big draw for us. To our surprise, all of the stops show the character and pinyin, and some stations even announce things in English! We now regularly use the subway, making life a lot easier. I take it every morning for my commute to class.
The places we visited were: Temple of Heaven, Tiananmen Square, and the Forbidden City. Below are some photos we took while playing tourist. Enjoy!
Stay weird, loves. xx
