I was asked to go on a biz trip this weekend, meeting on next Monday but I will be going earlier on sat midnight flight, expected to arrive Beijing around 720am. So I got a whole saturday, sunday and tuesday morning-afternoon (flight back at 4pm).
I planned to go to the following:
Saturday : Tiananmen Sq, Forbidden City, Tian Tan temple (where else can you recommend me?)
Sunday : Take a train to Xizhimen Station to catch a morning train from Beijing North Railway Station to BaDaling (Great Wall of China) (as I am not sure if this will takes the whole morning and afternoon, where else can you recommend me after this)
Tuesday morning - afternoon : Do some light/last min shopping and probably some street shoots.
I will be staying at Novotel Peace for the first night and Grand Hyatt on the 2nd-3rd night.
First timer here... never been to Beijing.
