Beijing Wtown at the foot of the Great Wall has been named the town with the most beautiful red leaves in the suburbs of Beijing, ranking first on the list of red leaves viewing destinations by netizens and travelers. Imagine this picture: in a quiet morning, the cool mist extends from the foothills to the water front, shrouding the town in a mist. Clouds move gently with the wind and the sunlight gradually smites over the ground from high ridges. Walls and the distant mountains where the red leaves cap over slowly come into your view. What a wonderful place worth visiting.
