    Great Wall of China: Juyongguan Pass

    The Juyongguan Pass is an entrance to a part of The Great Wall of China. If you're into trekking, it's a must visit in Beijing. If you're not a trekker (like me) it'll be a challenging climb, but it's worth it. The scenery is good, the breeze is perfect, and the wall itself is amazing.

We played 7 concerts in 7 different cities over the course of 3 weeks! Luckily, there was also just enough down time to explore a bit. Read on to hear about the highlights of my trip!

    Beijing in an Instant

    Beijing in two days? Yes, please! This October, accompanied by my faithful Fuji Instax Wide, I set out on a frenzy around the Northern Capital. I had just started learning Chinese and thought that would be the best China: 101.

    Scaling the Great Wall at Jia Yu Guan

    The Great Wall of China stretches more than 8800km and there are several starting points to scale it. Most tour groups visiting Beijing will visit the North Pass also known as Badaling. However, if you want to get away from the crowd, and enjoy the sight of the Great Wall without the pushing and hustling, I recommend you to start at Jia Yu Guan Pass.

    Great Wall (Badaling section, near Beijing)

    No visit to China can be complete without visiting the Great Wall - one of the most impressive large-scale constructions in human history. The Badaling section - the most picturesque and visited one - was built during the Ming dynasty and massively restored by Chinese government in the XX-th century.
