Beijing Shi Things to Do: 106 reviews and 270 photos


Houhai during the winter months is a fun fun place. For very little money, we are talking about from five rmb for ice skates to ten rmb for ice bicycle (60 minutes), you and your friends can have a blast and some exercise on the lake itself...and as everything else in Beijing, you will find the Chinese using the ice lake for multi-purposes. Cotton candy is sold on ice. Beijing glazed fruits on sticks sold on ice. Children toys sold on ice. And of course, ice bicycle, ice sleds, ice skates are all up for rental. For those who have cold feet, I think this is the best way to get some circulation going in the cold winter months.

Address: Houhai lake
Directions: Well, it is the houhai. A series of lakes in Beijing. You can't miss it. Everyone knows about it.
