    Falsely advertised.. Room is not what is shown online. Bathrooms rotten/broken! Only 20 mins of hot water a day in the shower. Minimal loo roll supply (we bought our own and toilet cleaner). Horrible sheets, mould on the ceiling and walls, really old heater to heat the room, old tv with terrible reception. They tried to say we had taken slippers when we left so that they could keep our deposit, we had to wait in reception for ages before they gave this back! Would never go near this place again.

    Beijing Hutong Culture Inn really is in the depth of the Hutongs and for people new to Beijing it would be near impossible to find. We had the help of a map on a smart phone but even then we got lost. I would suggest keeping their phone number handy in case you get lost or getting a rickshaw to take you. I think you may even be able to order this service if you ring the Hotel.

    The customer service is very good and there is a very sweet bar upstairs where you can sit, enjoy drinks and food and overlook the rooftops. You also get a free beer voucher when you check in.

    Our room was nice, large and clean but the door of the bathroom was clear glass. The toilet was in front of this door and you could see it from our bed. I love my partner but it's not very nice to wake up to see him doing his business. Make sure you are very comfortable with whoever you stay with.

    Anyway that was the only real problem. The tours are expensive but as you cans see in my blog, it's easy to arrange these yourself with a bit of extra effort.

    There is no laundry service. Only dry cleaning which is very expensive.

    Overall I rate this place highly. It's in a fanatic location especially if you interested in how the people in China live. It's also near some great tourist spots.

    ... to a concert / music festival. Well, we actually made it too it, but evidently there was some type of scam with the tickets, which were bought on line. You can buy everything online in China. There's some sight that's like a cross between Amazon and EBay. Well, so were there, but can't get the tickets. Evidently this happened to a lot of people. They problem is we couldn't quite figure out the scam, as the company you get the tickets from doesn't get paid until ...

    ... me to go to Shi Du, a town right on the border of Beijing, as they had also never been there, so it was a good opportunity for all of us to experience something new together.
    This town is right out into the country, around three hours from the center of Beijing. The air was fresher, the sky was clearer, and noticeably less people. I did think it was funny that what was considered to be a small town still had a steady stream of cars down the main road. When I think of ...

    I spent most of the day resting but got to catch up with some people, and will be seeing them again tomorrow- very excited!

    I think my body is still in a bit of shock because of the time difference changes, but should be sorted within the next few days.

    Might hire a bike and take a bit of a ride around tomorrow, just because I can.

    We did cross paths with the irish couple a few times, as everyone goes at their own path you are constantly catching up with and then losing people. Chatted to them a few times and was struck with the girls accent and then decided right that must be her.

    At the end of the tour we sat down for a much needed rest, and were again bombarded by hawkers, this time however i was more than happy to take an ice cold can of ...

    ... though, one seal in a small swimming pool!

    After lunch, we headed to Tiananmen Square. This is the largest city square in the world. You may recall that in June, 1989, soldiers opened fire on protestors (many of them college students) and killed 400-800, maybe more. Of course, our young guide made no mention of this. She did tell us not to say anything derogatory regarding China as there were many plain clothes police, walking ...
