TOUR PREVIEW

 
WAKE UP WITH THE CITY
 
Discover these breakfast treats that are only available in the morning – the early bird gets the good stuff in Beijing!
 
WATCH A CHINESE CREPE MADE TO ORDER
 
Jianbing is becoming a worldwide phenomenon, but wait until you’ve tried the traditional Beijing snack – handmade in front of you!
 
WANDER THROUGH THE HUTONGS
 
These meandering alleyways bustle with local neighborhood life. Check out the siheyuan (ancient courtyard) architecture and the morning markets down the lanes.
 
DISCOVER CHINESE COOKING METHODS
 
Bet you didn’t know cooking in a tandoor is also a traditional Chinese cooking method! Taste yogurt made from a local recipe – and try some off-the-beaten-path specialty dishes.
 
EXPLORE A LOCAL WET MARKET
 
These bustling markets are where locals bargain for their grocery shopping. Admire heaps of lotus root and see freshly-butchered halal lamb before sampling some local baked goods.
