Why use those two feet of yours to trudge around Beijing when you could hop on a bicycle and cover 10 times as much cool stuff…? That’s what we thought! So we’ve created this off-the-beaten-path bike tour that might just be our most fun yet. Sit down for a chat with a Buddhist Monk in one of Beijing’s oldest and most beautiful temples (if he’s in residence, that is); learn to ‘read’ the history of a traditional Beijing courtyard doorway; sup drinks in Beijing’s oldest cafe; stuff your face with quirky snacks, and even join an eccentric, septuagenarian swim club for a dip in a 12th century lake, if you’re brave enough.
(And, frankly, that’s not even the half of it. We just thought the list was getting too long so had to stop). You’ll end your morning with a well-deserved lunch at a hip noodle joint – and, if you’re lucky, we’ll have time to lead you to our favorite hidden craft beer spot for an award-winning post-tour pint too.
