BELL AND DRUM TOWER IN BEIJING!

One of the oldest parts of Beijing is the area around the Bell and Drum towers. Many old hutongs with their charming looks. There's a lot of tourists circling around in the area. This year I heard other westerners telling a hutong tour bicycle driver that they had their own bicycles with them. That's what I do too in fact. I go around Beijing on my own bicycle. Much better way to get around town, and you can decide for yourself when to go home or where to go. Totally freedom and what a way to see all that's happening around you. I strongly recommend it.

Many tourist doesn't know how to get around the best way. Forget taxi, bus or subway. The traffic is very slow and heavy in central Beijing. What takes fifty minutes with a car can take twenty with a bicycle. Plus you can stop where ever you like, and go in on the lovely alley streets. Here you can see the real beijingers dayly life. It's a must when you visit this city. Hope you will find my tips usefull. I have been here for four years now. Still learning from the beijingers how to get around in their wonderful city.

Other good places for you to see is the forbidden city(Gugong), Huhai lakes area, Tiananmen square, the lamasery Yonghegong, and of course outside the city is the great wall. That's it for todays blog.

Love Peter
