Retracing the steps that made me love Beijing while studying, I ought to have a closer look at their famous Hutong which we rarely visited. Hutong is much loved by photographers as well as tourists, We braved into the unknown and step into the realm of ultimate nostalgia. Beijing still has this kind of beauty within its cosmopolitan city.
While wandering around, I was curious about those small little cups locals where eating. I followed the source and discovered that they are eating MILK PUDDING. I had to try and it’s quite addicting though I could not finish it.
An art district that was once a famous hangout place of the Beijing youth is 798 Disctrict. Noticeably, this was a worn down factory/industrial area that once were. I’m such a movie junkie that this reminded me of movies located at the Bronx or the likes. All those graffiti makes a good pictorial place.
Another off beat place we went to was the hotel located near the Great Wall of China which is called Commune by the Great Wall. We had to pay for a day tour within the premises but interestingly, this seems to be very Westernize. A very private area, you can rent a room or better yet a whole house.
All these designs were created by well known architects around the world. You can check out their website. Great view of the great wall but certainly very expensive.
So if you are not a first time tourist, maybe you should take a visit around here. Happy vacation!
