... cool areas. We were planning to go for xiaolongbao (soup dumplings) for dinner, but it was too early and we were not hungry at all. We went back and hung out at our hostel for a couple hours before going to dinner. We went to the Dongmen area for dinner. There are tons of places to eat in this area!
