Day 5 School Trip to China

On day 5 of our stay in Beijing, students said farewell to their host families and resumed touring with their teachers and the adult members of our party. We had our own 18 seater bus, complete with driver and Lisa, our tour guide.

The day was hot and humid and our first stop was two of Beijing’s biggest attractions – Tiananmen Square Square and the Forbidden City.

A rickshaw ride through the hutong, a visit to a Chinese home in the hutong and some hard bargaining with determined hawkers selling watches, fans, souvenirs etc completed the afternoon.
