What I did

I really enjoyed seeing the hutongs, especially the one next to Sichahai. My friend and I took a pedicab ride through it and heard about the history and how the homes were laid out in quadrangles. Unfortunately, I also saw evidence of the hutongs being torn down to make way for more highrise buildings. I find this to be very sad and a great loss of Chinese history and culture.
