Thanks everyone for trip suggestions .
We were a group ( 2 families ) with total of 7 persons ( from 12 to 49 years old )
we ended up renting a minibuss for 1000 RMB ( about 125 USD )
( Tickets for the entrance were almost as expensive )
and going to Badaling - We could ask the driver for another location -
but my son and daughter were slightly sick so we went for the simplest climb.
We came to the place on monday around 12 oclock hoping for less crowd .
The place is TOURISTY - frankly all must sees in Beijing and around
are very very very crowded with people
- mostly Chinese tourist groups - not many western tourists at all.http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a3/Jann_L..._wall_T9280.jpg
My trip to china was a very special experience .
A lot of nice and less nice things like my cellphone was stolen , and we
got some fake 50 RMB note change, but also interesting food experience
( a real surprise ), fun shopping with a lot of haggling
( completely remote to our swedish reality )
China is definetely a great photo location ( i was only in Beijing )
very interesting repetitive event was many people asking for a photo
beiing shot of their kid by them with my son placed together like
some kind of a mascot
( most of the time my son 12 years thought it was fun - he is
not camera shy :-))
