Where's Hong Kong in China




‘Absolutely a must! This is my 5th trip to Beijing and the most memorable. Yes, climbing the Great Wall was truly awe inspiring, but coming to The Hutong makes China come alive. The hosts and staff are gracious and fun. As an academic I know what makes a good class and teacher. Chefs Sophia and Sue rank up there with the greats. I just wish I could have taken even more classes in Chinese Culture.’
