Biking Through the Hutongs of Beijing






We decided to take a tour of Beijing in a rather unconventional way. We hired a tour guide to bike us through the streets for nine hours. We were a bit saddle sore by the end of the day but had a marvelous adventure seeing the sights of the city. These slides are of the Hutong area of Beijing. These are the skinny little streets in which the Chinese residents of the city live.
