Live streamed by me from Beijing Hutongs using live video-conferencing software
Beijing people say that real Chinese culture lies in old Hutongs and their small courtyards.
I'll take you through narrow labyrinth-like streets to get a feeling of authentic Chinese life off the tourist paths.
As a tour guide in Beijing for 10 years, the place I like the most and often take guests to visit is the Hutong, because there you can experience the real history of Beijing,
We'll walk around the most famous Hutong in Beijing - Yandaixiejie & Hou Hai Hutongs
We'll go deep into the oldest part of my city and get an insight into ordinary Beijingers' lifestyles.
We'll walk around the most famous Hutong in Beijing - Yandaixiejie & Hou Hai, which started its history at the end of the Qing Dynasty.
Yandaixie Street was known in the past as an artists' and artisans' street specializing in jade pieces, calligraphy, paintings, and tobacco products.
We'll explore Houhai (meaning "Back Sea"), Houhai is an artificial lake, covering a total area of 87 acres (35 hectares). It formed part of the ancient waters of the Yuan Dynasty about 700 years ago and was exclusively for the royal family.
Houhai is in the center of Beijing, facing the Forbidden City in the distance. It is said that the waters of Houhai are connected with the "dragon vein" (an important and invisible artery that can keep things at peace, steady, and prosperous according to Daoism) of the Forbidden City and the lake is considered to be an awesome place.
