These are photos from a 5-day/4-night trip to Beijing with my colleagues in Taipei.
It was my first overseas group tour and it wasn't as bad
as I expect a lot of group tours can be. Spring is the dry season in Beijing
so the visibility leaves a lot to be expected. Even though the tourist season
hadn't started yet officially, the crowds at the Forbidden City, Summer Palace
and Great Wall were mind boggling. I can't imagine what it would be like
during the high season in summer.
