What to Expect
Discover Beijing by bike. Cycle the old alleyways of China’s capital known as hutongs, home to many of Beijing's residents, shops, markets, temples, and historic buildings.
Although modernizing at a rapid pace, China's capital still preserves its ancient and traditional heart in the winding alleyways and backstreets around the Forbidden City. Witness traditional way of life, and stop off at a local market to learn about traditional ingredients in Chinese cooking.
Enjoy a tasty Chinese lunch at some of our local friends in a traditional courtyard, before hoping back onto your bike and heading off to play a game of mahjong. Sip cups of green tea with locals while observing and playing this intricate game.
