Our last day of sightseeing began at Tiananmen Square, right in the centre of Beijing. Despite the drizzle, everyone was in high spirits as we waited in our first queue. Queuing was the name of the game today, as it seemed everyone wanted to see the same things as us. We entered the square and Lee explained all about its significance to China. Everything was enormous. After Tiananmen Square, we made our way through the many gates of the Forbidden City. We found out that it was called the “Forbidden City” because in ancient times all the common people were forbidden from entering it. After a long walk, we finally exited for a well-earned lunch. The Silk Market was our next stop and, once again, everyone had a fantastic time bargaining at the stalls. We finished the day off with a special hotpot dinner which was great fun, especially for our last night in China.
