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.

A: Best for the former Imperial Center: Hotels in Central Beijing
Central Beijing is the historic heart of Beijing. Now it is home to the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Chang'an Avenue, Wangfujing, Beihai Park, Jingshan Park, Changpu River and Zhongshan Park as well as some important museums such as National Museum of China, National Art Museum of China and Beijing Police Museum.

B: Best for Romance & Olympics Site: Hotels in Houhai & North Beijing
These two areas are a combination of Beijing's yesterday and today, and the journey from Houhai up to the Central North Beijing is a trip through time. Old time restaurants, bars, hostels, narrow alleys and courtyard hotels are booming around Houhai area while the North Beijing is a fast developing area with the Olympic sites and modern and futuristic buildings.

Houhai is the capital's old quarter, once especially for Manchu nobles and military officers in Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). It is now a fascinating warren of winding narrow alleys that thread their way past densely packed courtyard houses where life carries on much as it has for centuries.

C: Best for Mixing with the Common People in Beijing: Hotels in South Beijing
In comparison with the north and Northeast Beijing, the south Beijing remains comparatively underdeveloped. In Yuan and Qing dynasties, Han people were forced to live in the south of the imperial city center. Unlike the grid pattern of the inner imperial city and the north Beijing, the south Beijing has a random and organic pattern.

The south Beijing has a slow pace of life without much shining architecture or the modern style of the north and Northeast Beijing. The south Beijing is home to many hostels and courtyard hotels as well as a couple of mid-range and luxury hotels. It is a nice to place to see a real Beijing behind its seemingly modern and trendy backdrop.

Important attractions nearby include Liulichang Cultural Street, Fayuan Temple, Nantang Church, Temple of Heaven, Museum of Natural History...

D: Best for Business & Foreign Embassies: Hotels in Northeast Beijing
Northeast Beijing (Chaoyang District) is the most developed area in Beijing. It accommodates Beijing's Central Business District as well as hundreds of skyscrapers, hotels and office buildings. It is also home to the most of the international companies, embassies and new agencies.

It is not a very tourist area, but it does have some interesting sites such as 798 Art Space, Sanlitun Bar Street, Ladies' Street, Chaoyang Park, Dongyue Temple, Ritan Park and Tuanjie Lake Park.

This area is not really considered to be the best place where you might stay and enjoy the tourist sights. Why not? Expensive and teamed with white-collar workers.
