  • 8:30am Pick from your midtown hotel in Beijing and have a private transfer to the 300-year old courtyard in the Shichahai area.

    Arrive at the old courtyard and begin the one hour visit inside. With the help of your English speaking tour guide of the courtyard, you will have a detailed explanation of the old courtyard ( Siheyuan ) - its history, its layout, its Fengshui, and its traditiona Chinese culture involved.

    After visiting the old courtyard, take a bike ride through the zigzag and narrow alleys or hutongs. Then take the bike ride drive through the zigzag and narrow alleys or hutongs. Kindly reminder: Though Beijing is flat and safe for bike activities, it can be still a little dangerous. You are free to follow these directions at your own risk.

    Then cross over the Silver Ingot Bridge ( Yinding Bridge ), a narrow channel joining Qianhai Lake and the Houhai Lake, the hub of Shichhai area with surrounding quiet hutongs. Walking along the Yandai Xiejie ( Tobacco Pipe Lean Street ), a quaint 800-year-old hutong located directly north of Yinding Bridge between Qianhai and Houhai and the south of the Drum Tower, used to be well-known for sellers of long-stemmed pipes, hence the name.

    Ascending the 67-meter high and two-story Drum Tower dating from 1420 is sure to bring you back to the old Beijing by seeing the big drum tower and having bird's eye view of the surrounding communities of hutongs and siheyuan - existing traditional courtyards in Beijing.

    After visiting Drum Tower, you are transferred back to your downtown hotel in Beijing around 12:00 noon time.
