TravelPod Member ReviewsMaoer Hutong B&B Beijing
Run by a lady called Angela who is lovely and has a gorgeous little dog the B&B is lovely. It's very close to the heart of Beijing but far enough away so you don't get disturbed by the hustle and bustle. Rooms are of a fare size with a comfortable queen size bed, TV (all Chinese), small wardrobe and little bedside cabinet. There's also a shower room with toilet and sink. Shampoo, shower gel, hand soap, tooth brushes and tooth paste are provided although we are unsure whether they are inclusive or extra. Breakfast is nice and filling- however a bit strange for a westerner.
I would recommend staying here.

We went on a tour to see the Yungang Grottoes and the Hanging Monastery, which was a really interesting day although it poured with rain most of the day!

... dizzy as they spin round and round in them really really fast. from there on it's a whirlwind of crazy balancing acts and jumping through hoops, as well as a ridiculously talented juggler before culminating in a crazy motorbike stunt. A spherical cage is placed in the middle of the stage and a solo motorcyclist comes out, zooms into the cage and starts riding round and round and upside down in it. That's alright I guess, but then while the first guy is still ...
... we walked. Good call when we saw just how slow they were going...
Back at the bottom, pretty sure we harassed everybody trying to sell us anything. Managed to get 2 beers for 15 Yuan ($2) and the pancakes down to 10 Yuan each. Not bad for a days work.
Tour Day 3
Milly doesn't let us sleep in so we were up and out by 8:00am to see Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City.
Turns out that May is still the ...
... of 980 surviving buildings with 8,707 bays of rooms. The Forbidden City was designed to be the center of the ancient, walled city of Beijing. It is enclosed in a larger, walled area called the Imperial City.. Wikipedia has a great piece on the Forbidden City that I recommend you visit as well as the rest of this blog entry.
It was a beautiful afternoon. I had only seen pictures of ...
