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.

But if want to eat the best steamed buns, you must go to the innermost Changxing Hall.

Changxing Hall sells two kinds steamed buns, one is tailor-made Nanxiang Small Steamed Bun which is 20 yuan for 6 steamed buns and the other is specialty Nanxiang Small Steamed Bun which is 40 yuan for 6 steamed buns.
