Great News! Great News! The leaves in Badaling National Forest Park have turned red and it is so amazingly beautiful. Although the park is not within the Badaling Great Wall scenic area, one can see the wild walls from the park as well. Not only the wild walls, but the walls contrasting finely with ... Details

Since Beijing is always a hot tourist destination and people will pour into the city during the so-called 'Golden Week', I just ran from it to avoid the crowds, for I do not like crowds very much.
