Beijing - Drum Tower & Dongcheng North

This hútòng-rich neighbourhood is the most pleasant area in which to stay. Book yourself into a hútòng hostel or a beautifully converted courtyard hotel, then wander around the lanes of this charming neighbourhood, getting pleasingly lost.

- lose yourself in the maze-like network of historic hútòng

- stroll the incense-filled halls and courtyards of Lama Temple, Beijing’s largest and most impressive Buddhist temple

- listen to a drumming performance inside the magnificent ancient Drum Tower, before climbing its equally impressive neighbouring Bell Tower
