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.

Yan Dai Xie Jie

Yan Dai Xie Jie literally means "Slanted Tobacco Pipe Street ". The street itself resembles a huge pipe totally 232 meters long. It is "slanted "because it runs from the northeast to southwest.

In the early Qing Dynasty it was called "Slanted Drum Tower Street" since it was just located about 100 meters to the south of Drum Tower. In later Qing Dynasty its name changed into "Slanted Tobacco Pipe Street". At that time there were a great number of shops selling pipes. The tobacoo pipes were quite popular then.

Today, when you wander along the street, you still can find some shops selling all kinds of pipes. Besides, you will find elegantly furnished traditional stores, trendy bars and featuring inns and many more.

Yan Dai Xie Jie is at it best when it sparkles! It is quite easy to find the unique street, just about 100 meters to the south of Drum Tower. Following the signboard and the decorated archway, you enter the narrow street and melt into the ancient time of the early Qing Dynasty. At the end of the street, you will find yourself in the middle of the Yinding Bridge connecting Houhai Lake and Qianhai Lake, one of the most important bar areas in Beijing.

The decorated archway with the Chinese words - Yan Dai Xie Jie (烟袋斜街)
