On This Day . . .
On February 22, 2017, we docked in Xingang, China, where we left the ship and traveled to Beijing for an overnight stay. The countryside was covered with snow which is rare for this part of China. Our first stop of the day was a jade factory and restaurant, where we had lunch and toured the factory. After lunch it was off to The Great Wall, just outside of Beijing. Here we spent a couple of hours marveling at the world wonder. After visiting the wall we returned to Beijing and our stop for the night, the Sheraton Grand Beijing.
