China: Beijing

Welcome to China, the enigmatic homeland of tea, rice, silk, giant pandas, Confucius, the great wall, the terracotta warriors, and more…

First stop: The capital city of Beijing. Let’s go!

Temperature check on arrival.
ATMs are readily available and most have an English language option, so getting Yuan (the basic unit of the Chinese currency Renminbi) is no problem.
The choking Beijing smog is no joke.
Don’t drink the water!
