Travel article to Beijing from Artem Nefodov

My name is Artem Nefodov. Like all my friends, before I came to China, I always felt that it was a very remote, mysterious and ancient place. She has always fascinated me.


Finally last year September, I came to Beijing on a business trip and started to really get in touch with this country. When I got off the plane, the first sight of China was actually quite different from what I imagined. It is not like the TV or photos, there are red walls and yellow tiles everywhere. It is like many cities I have seen before. There are skyscrapers everywhere, wide streets are full of enthusiastic and cheerful people, and cars that never stop.


Of course, besides getting settled for daily work, on weekends, I always hope to go out to see more. Before I came to China, I had watched many documentaries about China, so I decided to experience it myself.


At the weekend of the end of September, I got my wish and came to one of the world’s landmarks-Tiananmen Square. I couldn’t wait to run towards it. This is almost something I have decided before I come to China.


Although I was still a little confused in the subway, I managed to get there. Perhaps this is mainly because I know too little Chinese, and many Chinese characters look too similar. Those “square characters” are as interesting and fascinating as the history of China. I know they will be very helpful to my next life in China, and I am trying to understand them.


When I walked to Tiananmen Square, the feeling was great and unspeakable. The floors here are generally relatively low, without the tension and depression of high-rise buildings. The red walls and golden tiles all seem very clear in sunny weather.


It is said that this is the place where the emperor lives, but I walked in furiously “Emperor”‘s house felt like dreaming, and the excitement was beyond words. It’s hard to imagine that the Chinese can interpret the solemnity and solemnity of the royal family and the government so shocked. I walked around Tiananmen Square for a whole day. In the end, I found that I didn’t eat or feel hungry. This is really incredible!


October 1st is China’s birthday. I feel that the city is suddenly slowing down. It turns out that everyone has a holiday. In Chinese, “Go home as you like”, and the awesome holiday is undoubtedly a joy. Because I had experience in Tiananmen Square last time, a few friends were very interested when they learned about it, and kept asking me to take them to see it. So, I came to Tiananmen Square again, but this time we went to more places. Because of the detailed strategy, this time I took my friends to visit Tiananmen Square with a tight schedule. It was still afternoon when I came out of Xuanwumen.


Taking advantage of our good spirits, we decided to go to Jingshan Park in the afternoon. In fact, I wanted to go last time, but it was already evening, so I gave up the idea. Since there is a chance this time, fortunately, the weather is great!


There is a white tower on the top of the mountain in Jingshan Park. On the tower, we can see the entire Forbidden City. This feeling is very strange.”Regulations” and the beauty of architecture have a panoramic view as if you have the entire world.


The most famous food in Beijing is roast duck, which is something I have heard before coming to China.


However, there are so many types of roast duck in Beijing, so many that I don’t know where to try and where the taste is best. Or accidentally on the street, I suddenly saw a very old building. At that moment, I thought it was very beautiful, so I remembered its house number. The house numbers in China are not the same as in our country. They are not all arranged in numbers, like the one in front of me. “Quanjude”, was only known after a Chinese friend translated it to me. It turns out that if you want to eat Peking duck, you should go to Quanjude. This is the answer!


Beijing duck


When I have a chance to pass by again when I was in Quanjude, I walked in as freely as a Beijinger without hesitation. After seeing the chef’s superb skills, I finally ate the legendary Beijing roast duck. Although it feels a bit greasy, the aroma will always remain in your mouth. It is a delicacy that is difficult to describe. In any case, you experience it in Europe.


When I introduced Beijing Roast Duck to my friends who are picky about their diet, as expected, they can appreciate the Beijingers as quickly as possible. The essence of the taste of “roasted duck skin dipped in sugar”.


In Beijing, you will definitely understand what is real “Congestion” maybe because it is the capital. Many times I will mechanically choose the most suitable mode of transportation according to the road conditions. After all, the city is too big, and it will be very distressing to be stuck on the road.


Beijng traffic jam


I want to buy a bicycle as my means of transportation because I saw that there are bicycles everywhere in this city, and they all look the same. However, when I told this idea to a Chinese friend of mine, he told me: “In China, cycling is very common, but you don’t necessarily need to buy it yourself. Those neatly stacked bicycles with special logos or QR codes on the roadside can easily meet your travel needs. At that moment, I was surprised. The Chinese are so happy. Now! In fact, there is still a question mark in my heart. Will the bicycles not be stolen? Is there enough stock in the city? In just a few minutes, with the help of my Chinese friends, I successfully opened a shared bicycle. Since then, I have I am deeply in love with shared bicycles-my “travel artifact” in Beijing.


Beijing except “Cool” and full of “artistic atmosphere”, this is the first time I went to the 798 Art District.


It’s already very cold in Beijing in December, but as long as I can come out to play, it doesn’t matter how bad the weather is, and I’m not used to wearing a mask.


When I came in here, in addition to the words “798 Art District” written on the wall at the door, it looked like some abandoned factory buildings on the outside. However, when I went inside, I found that it was incomparable magic. There are a lot of things here. I don’t feel anything when I look at them from a distance, but when I get close to them, I begin to be attracted by them. There are so many works of artists who like them that I can’t move. I have to “take” them away with my eyes and lens and keep them in my heart.


There are a lot of weird ideas in 798, there are also many new ideas, and there are many things I have never seen before. People here call them “original”. But no matter what it is, I can’t let myself reject its beauty.


798 art center


I feel like I’m a little bit”Addictive” to Beijing’s bit by bit, I must recommend the interesting places in Beijing to more of my friends.


In 2008, Beijing hosted the Olympic Games that belonged to her, which attracted the attention of the world and made China proud.


It was still cold in Beijing in February, but the bright sunshine made me feel warm. Come to the Olympic Park, where there are landmarks of the Olympic Games. In fact, I always do my homework every time I travel. Many of my friends are amazed at how well I know Beijing; I have my own secret weapon of course; with it, I can rest assured to play around Beijing.


The Bird’s Nest and the Water Cube are actually venues built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, this kind of architecture that amazed the whole world, is fascinating. The unique architectural style attracts people’s attention, which is particularly spectacular when seen from afar; as it gradually approaches, it gives people a sense of shock of a giant. Especially the bird’s nest, what kind of birds will such a huge “bird’s nest” contain?


“Life lies in movement”, is a sentence I accidentally saw on the street, and it was only after the translation of a Chinese friend that I deeply understood its meaning.


I very much agree with this point of view. I almost always choose shared bicycles for short trips nowadays. This is really a pioneering work that benefits all people. This picture is a way home from getting off work, I am riding the ofo 3.0 version of the small yellow car, riding on a quiet road, my partner took a new phone to me for a test shot, isn’t it handsome? By the way, I like the little lion on the right.


Beijing in May has begun to become warm, which gives me the illusion of going home. I still remember the warm weather when I first came to Beijing last year. Before I knew it, I had lived here for almost a year, and I found that I started to like it. This is a very united and beautiful country.


This time I came to the Temple of Heaven, which is said to be a place specially used for worship in ancient Beijing. This is the first time I have seen such a large altar. I think if I ask God for help here, it should be heard sooner.


This kind of weather is really breathless. The summer in Beijing is much hotter than I thought. I think I’m about to have a heat stroke.


However, after finally having time to rest, hiding in an air-conditioned room is no good. Beijing is so big, there are many places I haven’t been to.


It is like the Huangchenggen Ruins Park. What I like most is the city wall at the gate, which seems to have been hit by something. It seems to have a sense of age and vicissitudes. In such an environment, it is like a picture of history unfolding in front of me, telling those moving stories before my eyes.


There are many types of Chinese food, and breakfast is not necessarily milked coffee and hamburger.


In the morning in China, there are many more interesting foods, such as steamed buns, which I especially like.


Qingfeng Baozi Shop is very famous in Beijing, and the food here is not only very cheap but also very tasty. The process of not only filling the stomach but also enjoying the delicious food is very popular, and more importantly, eating Steamed buns doesn’t need chopsticks, which is great for me.


Qingfeng Baozi


By the way, if there is no time to sit down and have a quiet breakfast, I will take it away. Many times I choose to come here on my way to work to solve my first meal every morning.


Friends from my hometown saw my photos in China. They all expressed their envy and wanted me to be a guide in Beijing. Haha, I will definitely take them to eat all kinds of Beijing delicacies! After living here for almost a year, I feel that Beijing is actually more all-encompassing and full of vitality than I thought.


My friends in Europe hope that I can bring them some gifts when I go back. This is the same as I planned because there are so many different things here. I came to Nanluoguxiang in Beijing, where the goods are dazzling and they have a special Beijing flavor. I bought a lot of things to prepare for my relatives and friends, and I can imagine how excited they are.


Recently I watched a lot of Chinese costume TV series, those who know martial arts and wear retro”Heroes” and “Princes” are so cool!


I am envious of those emperors on TV. Although I don’t understand why the emperors on TV are so powerful, I decided to become one too. “emperor”. After all, my friends in Europe have never had this experience!


I used to think that the night in Beijing is always darker, not because of the sun “It’s off work”, but because there is so little nightlife at night, it was not until I came to Sanlitun that my original idea was a bit funny. The bustling here is no less than ours, even more, lively than ours.


Here, I can drink the most delicious wine, and I can see fashionable and beautiful young people. of course, whether it is wine or beauty, these are all delightful. I often go to Sanlitun with my friends, and I have a very relaxing time every time. And no matter how late we are, there are many, many people here, who will never feel alone.


During the year in Beijing, I felt that I had a full and colorful life. For a “foreigner”, it’s really amazing that I can go to so many places in one year. My friends think I’m very powerful. They ask me what the “secret weapon” really is. The reason why I can go to so many interesting places is that I saw a Russian friend checking the travel information of Beijing by chance, but it’s still Russian. Later, I learned that the website is called Beijing tourism. It has 8 language channels. Later, I fell in love with it without hesitation. It’s too rare, so I can clearly understand the information.


In fact, I have become a fan of this website for a long time in Beijing, because every time I go to a place, I will first go to this website to find some relevant information. This kind of dependence makes me feel dependent, at least I will not get lost in Beijing. Up. So I recommend it to my foreign friends in China, and I believe they will also become fans of it.


the Great Wall


Let me share my footprints in China for the time being. I actually want to go to the Great Wall, but I haven’t spared enough time, but I will definitely go.


Seeing this, I believe you must know why I recommend you to study in Beijing, China. If you want to know more about studying in China, please pay more attention to our website.
