On May 24th 2017, I left the UK to China for a month’s holiday. This is my first trip to China, the first time I have left the UK in 16 years and the furthest I have travelled.
I landed safely in Beijing – huge, hot, hectic city!
Beijing Airport is huge too. XR told me it’s the largest in the country, and second largest in the world. I was glad that she came to meet me and took me to the hotel…
Or, to be precise, her driver took us to the hotel!
We passed a few landmarks on the way of course – but I couldn’t get good photos from the car.
This is the famous “bird’s nest” Olympic Stadium. I would get a closer view of this later.
I am writing from the 16th floor of an air-conditioned luxurious hotel, overlooking the University.

Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but,
I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
Thank you very much. No, I don’t have a contact page. Comments on here are fine. I am glad you are enjoying this log. As you can see it is a personal blog about a trip I made to China in 2017, so there is unlikely to be any new content added to this.
If you enjoy it you can also check out my subsequent trips made later the same year and then in 2018:
Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one!
It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the
same layout and design. Great choice of colors!
Cheers. Probably the same theme that you used. You might be interested in my later blog from the following year: https://china2018.daiyanyingyu.uk
Hi there, all the time i used to check website posts here in the early hours in the break of day, as i enjoy to
gain knowledge of more and more.
Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I
wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
WordPress has a built-in editor, which is more-or-less WYSIWYG – but how it actually displays is dependent on the theme and the device on which the site is being viewed.
