I travelled to Beijing for ten days a couple years ago and really had an incredible time. I ambled about and did all the tourist things and went to all the incredible places. It was in the middle of winter, so it was COLD and I just loved the entire experience.
One of the coolest things when travelling, is just to walk around. To get lost in neighbourhoods and see the sights with no real destination in mind. To just see what you stumble across. It is a great way to soak up a city.
And one really nice place to wander in Beijing is though the city’s hutongs, which are old original neighbourhoods filled with winding thin alleyways and hidden places. Beautiful!
Here are some photographs I took on my phone as I wandered.
I hope you enjoy them 🙂
