Tour in Houhai (Shichahai)
Peking Opera may be the trademark of Beijing, even remind everyone with China. Hutong is definitely the place you should go. It is not a specific place, but the old-fashioned and straight alley with traditional quadrangle courtyard on both sides.
Hidden in the Hutong is the historical origin living style where you can find peace away from sky-high buildings. It is not only for visitors but also favorites of local people like myself.
For visitors who come to Beijing the first time, you can find the location in Google Map.
And recent weather for your consideration.
