Beijing has a rich cultural history. One can gaze at the 13th century Buddhist stupa while floating on a rented rowboat on Shishahai Lake. Beijingâ€™s hutongs â€“narrow alleyways â€“ are a close encounter with ancient Chinese culture. A bicycle or trishaw is the best way to trundle through them.
The Nanluoguxiang shopping area has kilometres of shops and the wide range of wares is indeed remarkable. The Dali Courtyard restaurant is noted for having no menu; only a chefâ€™s special that is served to all the customers for a fixed price. A visit to The Legation Quarter is also recommended because of the select complex of restaurants, bars and art galleries it hosts.
The flea market in Panjiayuan is the place to be in Beijing early on a weekend, for trinkets and memorabilia of the city. The early risers can join the taichi crowd that practises every morning at the Jingshan Park.
Food lovers can savour the rare roast duck at the Da Dong restaurant in Nanxincang and foot sore travellers can go for a rejuvenating foot massage at the Liangzi Foot & Body Massage Centre.
