Beijing Roast Duck there is an old saying that if you come to Beijing without the taste of Beijing Roast Duck just like you have not been here. Tourist who come to Beijing all want to have a taste Beijing Roast Duck, because it is the most typical local flavored food in Beijing with a history of over 600 years, dating back to the Ming Dynasty. The duck dinner served together with some thin pancakes, green onions and sweet soybean paste. That is really wonderful taste!

Hutong has a long history in Beijing. As the Forbidden City is the symbol of China's royal family, the zigzag Hutongs in Beijing show the real life of the common people. When you visit Hutong by rickshaw, you could really taste the life of common people in Beijing. Old houses, narrow streets, small courtyard and traditional quadrangle along the Hutong all attract your attention. You could really feel that Hutong culture not only influences local people’s way of living, but also influences their thoughts and actions.

Lao She’s Teahouse

This is one exciting cultural place at Qianmen off the main tourist itinerary. It is named after the drama Teahouse by Chinese author, Lao She. Although an attempt to give a taste of a Beijing tea-house during Lao She’s time, it has instead transformed into a wonderful entertainment house with short shows by comedians, singers, musicians, acrobats and opera performers.
