This historic site is a combination museum and tourist site. There are several courtyards and buildings and a beautiful garden. We visited on an extremely hot day. Keep in mind that air conditioning is very limited and there is a fair amount of walking. I...More

It is less known than other touristy sites of Beijing. Friendlier and more homey than the forbidden city. Less crowded before 8:30am and on a rainy day. Many walkways with roofs and/or trees to shield you from the sun or the rain. We had fun...More

I took my aunt and cousin on a hutong tour (I live in Beijing). We started at the Princes' Palace (located just north of the Beihai Exit B Stop - so convenient), and then meandered through the hutongs to Houhai Lake (then we crossed it,...More

Before anything, remember to only buy tickets at the attraction. Ticket counters are inside the front door. Do not buy from shops that are not at the attraction. The mansion was originally the residence of an official during the Qianlong Emperor's time. The official was...More

A good friend who lives in Beijing took us here on our recent trip to Beijing. Prince Kung's Mansion hasn't been a part of any of our past tours but is a very popular spot for Chinese tourists. This is a beautiful, well preserved Qing...More

Don't go on a Chinese holiday, as the crowds will be overwhelming. We went mid-week in the Autumn, and were relatively alone. The buildings are well-maintained and the main signage is in English, but the museum-type exhibits offer no English, so you won't know much...More

I was fascinated not only wig Prince Gong's Mansion, but also with the surrounding hutongs. The Mansion itself is much larger than expected, with different halls and courtyards and lovely gardens. Unfortunately we visited on the Monday of Dragon Festival which appears to equate to...More

This palace is beautiful and very well maintained. It's a secret, hidden gem in Beijing as very few foreign tourists go there. I was the only foreign tourist there when I went there. I highly recommend it. It's worth it if you want a break...More
