Beijing’s Golden Week

Huge temporary flower display at Tiananmen Square.

Nanluogu Xiang, the trendy hutong with a history of over 700 years. Apparently a hidden gem within the city, although I think everyone found it!

By chance, managed to catch one of the many Chinese parades taking place during the week.

The entire city was buzzing the past week! Shi Yi is the first day of a national holiday here, it celebrates the founding of the People’s Republic of China 62 years ago and is celebrated with a week long holiday where everyone travels. Beijing is a prime hot spot with thousands coming to the city and visiting the most popular tourist destinations such as Tiananmen Square. The whole week was absolute madness but I loved every minute of it, such an amazing atmosphere!

Having a great time so far,
