Beijing and I




At the Red Theatre in Beijing as we were going to watch the Legend of Kung Fu which was shown in Las Vegas, Canada and Australia...We planned to watch Peking Opera but at the last minute we opted for this as we think we can relate more on this than chinese opera.

At the entrance of the show house...

Photo of Chairman Mao hangs at the entrance hall of The Forbidden (Not anymore) City.


Marching soldiers inside the Forbidden City

The watchtower of the Temple of heaven... Aside from the walls, the temple is surrounded with a lake...

Boats which visitors can ride if only it's summer. Still breathtaking  view despite the frozen lake. 

The pagoda/belltower at the hutong area

Freezing cold beside the lake at the Hutong area.

Bird's Nest in Beijing during the day

Interesting structure at the Olympic Site.
