Day

Meet your guide at the lobby of Beijing Capital Hotel (Address: 3 Qian Men East Street) at 7:30 in the morning, and walk about 5 minutes to discover an authentic Beijing breakfast. Join the local Beijingers and feast on the douzhir (fermented soya-bean milk), deep-fried dough sticks, steamed bun, wonton, etc. (we suggest you have some breakfast in your hotel in case that you don’t like the local breakfast). Start your day with the real flavor of Beijing.

Morning vegetable market

Afterwards, walk with your guide to a nearby morning market (5 minutes walking), where there are all kinds of fresh vegetables and fruits for sell. Locals, especially the elder generations come here in the early morning for their daily meals. They greet each other and have casual chatting. It is fun to see the customers bargain with the vendors. Try some fruit if you like.

Old-fashion Department Store

Only five minutes’ walk away from the morning market is an old-fashion department store. It is an exception among Beijing’s numerous modern shopping centers, by keeping its “old look” from 1960s and selling various time-honored brands of daily necessities, including silk, cosmetics, clothes, all with good quality and reasonable price. You can buy yourself and friends some souvenirs here. 

Temple of Heaven

Then walk about 20 minutes for the visit of Temple of Heaven. It was a place for ancient emperors to worship heaven, and a masterpiece of architecture and landscape design. In the morning, local people gather here for fun - they fly kites, practice Tai Chi, sing songs, play cards and chess…

Your guide will arrange you a local restaurant for today’s lunch, and help you order dishes.

Beijing Hutong

A visit of hutong is a must for a classic Beijing tour, which allows you an in-depth travel of the city. On this tour, your guide will walk you to a less-known, pristine Hutong. Have a glimpse of the authentic local life in these narrow lanes lined with the traditional courtyards.

After the hutong visit, you need to walk for about 15 minutes to the bus station, and take a bus back to your hotel.
