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.

Baoguosi Culture Market


"Baoguosi" means Baoguo Temple ( Serving the country Temple ). It was first contructed in the Liao Dynasty (916-1125) in the southern part of downtown Beijing. Baoguo Si was a Buddhist temple. During the Ming Dynasty, it was used to hold a member of the royal family. By the early Qing dynasty, the temple had already been turned into a popular bazaar for books and flowers. So Baoguosi Temple is more like antique marketplace than a temple. But it still keeps the appearance of a temple. It has three halls. Two of the three halls as well as the buildings circling the temple wall are used either as warehouses or showrooms. Now it has expanded to include an antique market, a souvenirs and gifts market, coin markets and a stamp collection market. Traders there also sell miscellaneous items as jade, coins, Buddha statues, old books, calligraphy works, paintings and many more!

This temple antique market is located No.01, Guang'anmenneidajie on the western Liangguang Lu ( Liangguang Ave. ), Xuanwu District. Open 8:30am-5pm. I suggest you visit Baoguosi Culture Market on weekends. There will be more sellers, specially more mobile vendors on the weekend. In fact only on the weekend, these mobile vendors are allowed to sell their stuff on the ground. The big difference between Baoguosi Culture Market and other antique markets is that Baoguosi market is well focused on ancient coins, old ppaper money and old books.
