After visiting the Great Wall, another place that we visited was the Beijing’s Hutong.
What are Hutongs? Actually they are a type of narrow streets or alleys; formed by lines of siheyuan, traditional courtyard residences. The best way to get around and to see was on trishaw.
Just look the the row of trishaws waiting for customers or more like tourist like me….

Yup… a row of trishaw bringing tourist around the Hutong area…. going through the small alleys passing along a river .
What a sight!!

Moving on… we stopped at southeastern corner tower of the city wall where it was built during the Ming & Qing Dynasty. What’s left was the remnants of the southern section of the Inner City wall near the Southeast Corner.
Stay tune for more……
