"In Beijing, the most fun that..." Beijing Off The Beaten Path Tip by McCurry

Beijing Off The Beaten Path: 276 reviews and 427 photos


In Beijing, the most fun that my wife Juli and I had was the day we just took off walking up and down side streets and alleys. We must have walked 5 or 6 miles. With over 10 million population, each neighborhood is like a small town within itself. We had a great time looking thru the family owned corner markets. The selection of food was impressive and the people were friendly. Small businesses owned by individuals are robust in China. (Don't tell anyone but.. I think they are more capitalist than we Americans are...)
