Exploring Beijing

Explore Beijing is part of a series of travel photos taken by the Explorer Lifestyle Team, which has been busy travelling around Asia. Beijing is one of China’s most modern yet cultural cities and always fascinates travellers.

You can find all of this in and around Beijing, from the Great Wall of China to Tiananmen Square to modern shopping streets overshadowing the traditional food alleys.

Exploring Beijing with AirAsia X

The Explorer Lifestyle team visited Beijing in November 2013, as it was nearing winter, and spent five good, fun, and exciting days there. We also took an AirAsia X flight to Beijing to prove that the flights are on par with other fully serviced airlines.

Five hours on the AAX flight was just as comfortable as any other airline. Once there, we took our own sweet time to walk around Beijing, and here are some of the photos we took to Explore Beijing.

All photos were taken using a Nikon D60 with multiple lenses.


There you have it; some random photos were taken during our amazing trip to the capital of China. It is highly recommended that you visit Beijing once in your lifetime, and the best time is also during Fall or Spring. You should also spend a minimum of four days seeing some of the world-renowned attractions here.

Moving around is quite simple, but if you have experience speaking Mandarin, that is a beneficial bonus. However, a lot of the signage is in English too. I hope you like our article on Explore Beijing with AirAsiaX.
