Discovering Beijing on a bike is one of the most fun ways to get to know the Chinese capital. Beijing turns out to be not only a large and anonymous city, but also small scale and intimate. On the bike you can observe street life and you get to know the real Beijing. This bustling city with more than twenty million inhabitants seems to be reduced to a small village, and on your bike you feel like you are really part of it.
Cycling through the hutongs (old city neighborhoods)
Break at the Lakes (houhai) for a refreshment
Square of Heavenly Peace (near the Forbidden City)
Fascinating and exciting tours to popular and less-known places of interest in and around Beijing, like:
Visit the Chinese wall
Theme-walking tour; such as the 'Dream of the Red Chamber'. This is one of China's most famous literary works. During the tour you get insight into the story, the main characters and the background of this novel.
Visit Cuandixia, located in the mountains outside Beijing. The village was built during the Ming-dynasty.
Wandering through the hutongs, you discover the daily life of ordinary Beijingers. These historical neighborhoods are the most characteristic living areas in Beijing. The atmosphere is friendly, almost village-like and there is always something new to explore: small shops, a local market, men playing Chinese chess. Every season and even every moment of the day has its own dynamics.
