Quick weekend trip to Beijing

We took the fast train up to Beijing for a little bit this weekend! There is SO MUCH to see. We left a little later than we really wanted to on Saturday morning and made it to Beijing by 11:15. The actual train trip between Tianjin and Beijing was the fastest part of the trip. It took us longer to get from our apartment to the train station-that's how fast the train is. It goes like 290kph. What is kph, America? That just means really fast.

I can't tell you how many days we'll need to actually see Beijing, the city is huge and amazing. We'll keep going back. For this trip we saw Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City. Sadly, the Forbidden City was actually forbidden to us because by the time we got there, they had sold out of their 80,000 tickets for the day. But we live just down the way in Tianjin, so we'll be back.

Check out the video of the weekend!

  1. Great video guys, I felt like I was right there with you! You even walked around Beijing at 290 kph - and I noted that Jim visited every street food stall in Beijing too! Thanks for sharing your weekend.

    1. Can't wait to show you guys around! I was the one who was so excited about the street food (and it's SO GOOD) but Jim is the one who speaks enough Chinese to order and ask how much we owe. Come visit!!!
