Great experience... you get to know how the chinese really live in their hutongs...
Highly interesting, but arrange a price before starting.
This 18th century Bell Tower replaces the original which was built on this site at the same time as the Drum Tower.
Bell and DrumTower
In both buildings a very steep stairs with 75 steps is leading up to the top where you enjoy a great view of the city
If you want to know the real old Beijing,you must visit the 'hutong's.They are dated from 900 years ago.They are very narrow streets in the city center,showing a daily Beijng.
