We were pleased to have lunch with wonderful guests in the Quadrangles of Beijing. The food was good and it was great to see a family home, passed down from previous generations and obviously treasured by the family today.

Having a Rickshaw Tour around the ancient alleyways of Beijing's Hutong neighborhood is very rewarding. Our tour group 'China Star Holiday' visited a family in one of the Quadrangles where a lunch was prepared for us.

Thoroughly enjoyed our rickshaw tour through the old area of Beijing & learning about the history of the area. Mrs Woo was friendly & answered our questions- through our guide as she did not speak English.
