"Off the beaten path 2 blocks from your hotel." China Off The Beaten Path Tip by melosh

China Off The Beaten Path: 138 reviews and 162 photos


This tip has been made before by VT members, but it bears repeating. In China the best "off the beaten path" activity may be just a few blocks away from your hotel. I never found a back alley or street where I did not feel safe even in Beijing. Nor did any Chinese (or my son) feel it was necessary to give me a warning.

China may be the safest country in the world for just wandering around. I loved it.
