As I told you before, my happiest memory of my time in Beijing is the time I spent wandering and getting lost in the local hutongs. There is so much to see and explore, the photo opportunities are endless and there are many lovely cafés and restaurants for a coffee-break!
I really liked the Vineyard Café close to the Lama Temple and the Passby Bar at Nanluogu Xiang (maybe the most famous hutong in Beijing). Oh and talking about food, if you like Dumplings you have to eat at Din Tai Fung, a famous restaurant chain from Taiwan. Mmh, delicious!
One word of advice about the use of rickshaws (as in the second picture) - there are no bus or metro stops in the hutongs, so many tourists take rickshaws to get around or back to the next public transport. Make sure that you triple-confirm the final price before getting on-board! And never accept the first price, it might be 300% too high! Ahh, the magic of traveling :)
Have a lovely week! *K
