This is where our adventure started. We didn't know what to expect and wow, what a surprise. Magnificent ancient architecture and sights, everything seems to be extra large here. We fell in love with the hutongs where fast pace modern life is far away. You can sit down here between the very friendly locals and watch the world go by.
The Great Wall is probably one of the most impressive things we have ever seen, truely breathtaking. We enjoyed every bit of Beijing and hope to come back once, although the wonderful hutongs might have made way for this ever modernising metropolis.
