We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Beijing used to have many man-made lakes, rivers and canals hundreds of years ago.

Among them, Shichahai Lake is the most famous lake in the heart of Beijing with over 700 year old;the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal is one of the greatest ancient projects in China and is the longest man-made canal in world.

The 9-km Changhe River, also called Royal River or Gaoliang River in Ming Dynasty, is the only river with the track of the royal family in Qing Dynasty. The boat rides offer you a rare opportunity to discover the intriguing part of Beijing.

Beijing River & Lake Tips

Changhe River: Beijing used to have many man-made lakes, rivers and canals hundreds of years ago. Today some of the old lakes, rivers and canals have been renovated and opened to the public for Beijing boat tours or Beijing cruising. Among them, the 9-km Changhe River, also called Royal River or Gaoliang River in Ming Dynasty, is the only river with the track of the royal family in Qing Dynasty.

The Changhe River starts from the wharf at Beijing Exhibition Center and ends at Summer Palace. Changhe River winds through Beijing Zoo, Beijing Purple Bamboo Park and arrives at Summer Palace. There are three main wharfs along the 9-km Changhe River - Beijing Exhibition Center wharf, Beijing Zoo wharf and Purple Bamboo Park wharf. At Beijing Zoo, you can visit Panda House. The Purple Bamboo Park wharf is the place where, Empress dowager Cixi used to take breaks on her way to the Summer Palace in Qing Dynasty.

The Summer Palace is the largest and best-preserved imperial garden in China. The boat ride gives you the chance to enjoy the water with the beautiful scenery of willows and peach trees along the both banks, hence the saying: "seeing pine trees in the Temple of Heaven and willows along Changhe River."

Beijing Hangzhou Grand Canal: The Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal is one of the greatest ancient projects in China and is the longest man-made canal in world. It covers a total length of 1,794 kilometers, and meets five rivers of the Yangtze, Yellow, Huaihe, Haihe, and Qiantang rivers. It winds through Beijing, Tianjing, Hebei province, Shandong Province, Jiangsu Province and Zhejiang Province with Hangzhou at its southernmost end. The small section of the grand canal - Tongzhou Grand Canal has been opened by the local government to the public for boat ride and sightseeing. The one and half hours' boat t ride gives you some real experience of the grand canal life.

Shichahai Lake: Shichahai Lake is the most famous lake in the heart of Beijing with over 700 year old. "Shichahai" literally means "a lake with 10 temples surrounded". It consisted of three seperate lakes, Xihai Lake, Qianhai Lake and Houhai Lake. Qianhai and Houhai are linked by a well known bridge - Yinding Bridge ( Silver Ingot Bridge)a, a hub of Shichahai area with surrounding quiet hutongs. Actually the Hangzhou-Beijing Grand Canal started here in Shichahai. So Shichahai was once a part of the Grand Canal.
