It's exciting to see heavy snow in Beijing in winter
It snowed in Beijing last night. Many Beijingers go out to enjoy the snow with their hands dancing.
The best thing to see is the snow in the Forbidden City. There are many stories about the snow in Beijing during past throusand years. While enjoying the snow scenery of the Forbidden City, there are also these poems about snow scenery! If you want to see the Forbidden City turn into the history Forbidden City, a snow is enough. Qionglou Yuyu, the bronze lion ridge beast are covered with snow, with quiet, solemn beauty to tell you: 600 years of the Forbidden City, never changed.
The snowy forbidden city itself is like a poem. Today, walking in the Forbidden City, we can say more than "beautiful".
More than 2000 years ago, MI Yue was taken hostage in the state of Yan. Mi Yue's and her son were faced with cold and hunger. The wind and snow mixed. They didn't eat or drink in the winter. They were hungry and faced great difficults.
