      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.

Now back home the road would be closed, workers in high-vis jackets and helmets would patrol but not here. A crane, a dozen casual clothed workers wielding chainsaws the job was done in less than 5 minutes. We could learn a lot from this lot. The Huairou Mùtiányù range began ...

Sleeping, eating, breathing and exercise are all central components to wellness, but there are guidelines to follow to get the most health benefits. Alex explained that you start to wind down your life cycle and prepare for your retirement in your 40s. This is when most Chinese actively begin to practice Chinese wellness. By the time you reach your mid 50s you are completely retired, usually ...

      ... to find a hostel to stay an extra night at least. Then we need to head to Beijing West Station to find out when we can get tickets on a sleeper train to Xi'an, and then we need to find our way to Badaling at the Great Wall. There are tour offers for different parts of the wall, but we're attempting to do it independently, which may turn out to be an excellent decision, or disasterous.

      Wish us luck!

      Beijing was my first stop in China where I had arranged to Couchsurf with a local Chinese couple Hengna and her hubby Mr. Loo. Per Hengna's directions I was successful in arriving at the desired metro stop; however, since I arrived at 6:30AM and Hengna had the phone off, I spent the first couple of hours at the nearby Starbucks, not knowing if I had a place to stay or not. In the end I met Mark, a Canadian ...
