I went on a trip to China with my parents in August 2006. We were able to go on this trip because my father’s company rewarded him for his long service. So my father went to the travel agent to arrange for a 3-day 2-nights trip to China.
We took the 12am flight from Kuala Lumpur (KL) to Beijing, China. We also met with five other tour members in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). We arrived in Beijing at 6am. We met with the tourist guide, Xiao Qiang after we came out from Beijing Capital International Airport.

The place was so huge that it could accommodate the tombs of the thirteen emperors of the Ming Dynasty. We also went to Juyong Pass of The Great Wall of China. It is one of the three greatest passes of the Great Wall of China. Besides, Xiao...
