Rickshaw Ride Through the Hutongs
For a change of pace, step away from the traffic and crowds in the most populated capital city on the planet and discover a more traditional, Chinese lifestyle. Your rickshaw driver will pedal you through a maze of narrow streets that were made hundreds of years ago during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Authentic, courtyard houses line the streets of these neighborhoods nestled among the trees. This is a fascinating way to get a glimpse into China’s past and experience the simplicity, communal living and the sense of community of the people living in the Old Beijing hutongs.
