Beijing Hutong Tour- Where History Comes Alive

Many travellers who have read about China in books go to China to witness what they have already read or heard about this magical eastern land. However, much of the cities have changed over time and what many have read in classical books that describe the idyllic aspects of old China and its Eastern charm cannot be found in most places.

However, tourists going on a Beijing Hutong Tour are sure to feel as they actually traveled back in time to another time and age. Tours here allow tourists to observe traditional life and culture of this part of the world. Travellers will see all the historic monuments mentioned in the books, the traditions that have been followed by the people of this land and even spot certain historical figures, legends, and more. It is surely a setting where history comes alive.

There are a number of tours that one can take depending on the kind of things that one wants to explore. They revolve around various attractions. Some would take travellers to the Great Wall, undoubtedly the first cultural attraction that pops to mind when one thinks about China. Or one can explore the ancient Beijing area on a rickshaw and feel like the gentry in the olden ages. There are also trips that take you to the Forbidden City or a day exploring the Houtong area. The best way to see this region is by foot, on a bicycle or by rickshaws. There are small alleys to explore, a 300-year-old courtyard, a drum tower with more than 69 steps to climb, the Lama temple, Nanluoguxian, and much more to see.

One of the best ways to explore all that this city has to showcase its visitors is to stay at one of the Beijing apartments in the city. It is great for those who come here on work or on extended holidays and they are suitable for business executives or families with young children or groups of travelers who plan to stay here for a long period of time. One of the best Beijing accommodation options of this kind is the Ascott Beijing.
