Yiding Bridge - Serves its purpose but its so crazy at nights!

Reading about it in my guidebook, I thought this is something special, but when I arrived there and saw how small it was with a lot of people standing and moving on and around it, it’s very hard to see why it’s mentioned. The historic meaning is probably interesting, but lost to me, The good thing about it is, that... More

It’s a stone bridge of one arch, which looks like the upside down silver ingot. It supposed to give you the best view of two lakes (Qianhai Sea and the Houhai Sea). But as the Hutong Tour guide was going so fast, I only took a couple of photos without being able to enjoy the views.

A small bridge to connect both side in Shichaihai lake. Sometimes lonely during daytime but a high transit road for people, motorcycles, bicycles and, even cars! During high season, all lakes became quite crowded (due all bar and restaurant offer) and this bridge works as a funnel, so expect to wait some times even more than 5 minutes to cross... More

This bridge is right in the middle of the best souvenir shopping area of Beijing - so much to look at and buy. Also snacks and cafes. The oldest post office in Beijing is right in the middle and you can send home a post office with the 'chop' or stamp from this post office as a souvenir. Snacks and... More

The Silver Ingot Bridge connects two human made lakes. It is a busy bridge with all the tricycle tours using it when you go on a tour. I was there in the early afternoon and it was busy. Lots of bars and places to eat near the bridge. If you continue straight along there are lots of little shops and... More

Picturesque bridge in the Houhai area, provides a nice photo opportunity. On both sides of the bridge are streets full of bars, coffee shops, and restaurants.

When visiting the belltower/drumtower, I can highly recommend to take a walk from the belltower to the south and the first street to the right. A lively street with a lot of teashops etc. that will lead you to the north side of the Yinding bridge. Have a great time at the end of the day and spend the night... More
