Street Life, Beijing Style 

When I booked this trip I didn’t realise what a delightful area I had chosen. 

It am staying close to the Houhai lake and surrounded by Hutongs.  Hutongs, seem to be traditional ways of living , lots of quirky alleys, fascinating shops, tiny restaurants and bars. 

You can also get a glance at the way Chinese families once and still sometines do live today 

A quick word of warning though, costs of drinks can vary incredibly,  in Hutong areas a beer can be as little as 70p, around the popular Houhai lake a beer can cost as much as £7 ! Wow what a difference in less that half a mile
