Beijing, China (Day 4)

Day 4, 11th May 2010, in Beijing, China

The day begins with breakfast and a tip for facial care by our tour leader, Xiao Yan, natural way for a facial mask is mix egg white, pearl powder and honey, the best remedy for all skin care!
Yes, pearl powder is not easy but it's the best! So Pearl Factory is our next stop.



There's a story of the Empress Dowager Cixi (Picture below). I just know in short, she's smart, powerful, intelligent, brave, strong, patient, greedy, selfish, heartless and vain. You wanna know her full story? Here's something I found off the net >> CLICK HERE <<

 Soon after, we went to the Summer Palace aka "Qingyi Garden", like most of the gardens of Beijing, it was destroyed by fire. In 1886 however, Empress Dowager Cixi embezzled navy funds to reconstruct it for her own benefit, changing it's name to Summer Palace (Yiheyuan). She spent most of her later years there, dealing with staten affairs and entertaining. Over here, we even took a cruise on Kunming Lake. According to our tour leader, Xiao Yan, certain places here are good to take picture at, but some are bad because of feng shui.



Later we were taken to the Crystal Factory that sells all types of crystals in all accessories, even in spectacles! With power up to >4.00 max. Helps reduce eye power and improve blood flow in iris when worn. I'm above >4.00 so forget about buying it! (sad....). We had lunch soon after and then a trip to the Capital Museum!

(The Crystal Factory toilet very CLEAN & NICE!)

Lot's of exhibition and approx. up to 5 levels of exhibition! The whole building is just modernly designed and looks waaaayy better than most museum's I've seen by far. The whole history of China can "almost" be found  here. Trully works of wonderful art!
