Today we will show you how normal “Beijingren” (Beijing natives)
go through their days, along with showing you some of the
Beijing attractions that often get lost under the glare of the
Forbidden City and the
Temple of Heaven. On this tour you will have a chance to
step back in time to the
and rich folk life of old Beijing, while also going on to
experience Beijing’s confident present and sparkling future. On
this tour you can start to better understand the mentality and
feelings of the typical “Beijingren”. You will run the whole
gamut on this journey, from quiet alley streets, to the massive

hotel pick-up & drop-off!
* We usually pick up from hotels in the central and eastern
districts of Beijing. If you stay in the western districts such as Haidian,
or in the airport area of Shunyi, you may be asked
to take subway or taxi in order to join us in downtown Beijing. We can
pick you up separately with additional 100 yuan for a private
transfer. This is to make
sure our bus can leave Beijing before the stifling morning rush hours. Thank
you for your cooperation!

1. Between 7:30-8:00am our English-speaking guide
will pick you up at your hotel, and we will get
started with today's activities.
2. Our first stop today will be Jingshan Park, which
is located just north of the Forbidden City. Built
from excavated mud and dirt that was uprooted to
build the Forbidden City’s moat, Jingshan Park has
long been a favorite recreation spot for Beijingers.
Make sure not to miss the site where the last Ming
emperor killed himself as he watched the Forbidden
City fall into the hands of a rebel band. The top of
Jingshan Park gives you perhaps the best postcard
view of any spot in Beijing, a full sweeping view of
the Forbidden City. This is definitely a fantastic
photo opportunity, and one you can’t afford to miss.
3. We’ll next make the short drive north to the Nanluoguxiang bar street, which is located in the
heart of Beijing’s old Hutong district.
Nanluoguxiang is one of the best-preserved
historical areas of downtown Beijing, as well as
being one of the most chic and trendy places to hang
out in the afternoons and evenings. The
768-metre-long south-north central lane, with 16
Hutong branching off the central lane, is full of
interesting craft shops, relaxing cafes and trendy
bars. The area has a history of over 700 years and
is one of the oldest Hutong neighborhoods in the
4. Just a stone’s throw away from Nanluoguxiang is
the lake area of Houhai, a favorite spot for
Beijingers and expats alike. Houhai is always a good
place for viewing local Beijingers' recreational
life, and in the last 200 years, many governmental
officers, celebrities, monks and nuns chose to build
mansions, temples and nunneries in Houhai. Thus,
Houhai’s attraction lies not only in its natural
beauty, but also in the historical value of its
architecture. The lakeshore is packed with young
people chatting, drinking and generally relaxing as
wood pigeons coo overhead. In recent years it has
become famous for nightlife because it is home to
several popular restaurants, bars, and cafes.
5. Not too far away from Houhai is the Lama Temple,
which is Beijing’s most marvelous Buddhist temple
while also being a masterpiece of Buddhist design
and planning. Keep a look out for one of the largest
Buddha statues in the world in the rear area of the
Temple. After our visit we’ll stop at a nearby
Chinese restaurant for lunch.
6. Following lunch we’ll head to see some of
Beijing’s more modern marvels, with this occasion
bringing us to the Olympic Park. The Olympic Park
served as the center of Beijing’s 2008 Olympic
games. We will first stop by the Bird’s Nest, which
hosted the opening ceremony along with track and
field. Due to its unique design it is now one of the
most iconic and unique stadiums in the world.
7. Next it is off to the Water Cube, which is
situated directly across from the Bird’s Nest. The
Water Cube was the location for the swimming and
diving portion of the games (where Michael Phelps
had his record-breaking performance), and is now
currently a water park, which is reportedly the
biggest in Asia.
8. Our last stop today will be at the Beijing Zoo,
where you will get the chance to see that most
iconic (and cute and cuddly!) of China’s animals,
the Panda. While only living in a small area of
China’s Sichuan Province, outside of Sichuan, the
Beijing Zoo is the best place to see the Panda, one
of the world’s great creatures.
9. You will then be dropped off back at your hotel,
ending the day’s activities.
