An Urban Hike through Old Peking

Date: Saturday, December 3
Time: 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

We’ll be walking about 5 km, and along the way, we’ll be telling stories of old Peking from the Ming Dynasty down to the 1970s. We’ll begin at the Dengshikou Metro Stop and head up to the Nanluoguxiang/Drum Tower area near the Shichahai Metro Stop. The total walk will be about two to three hours, and we’ll have plenty of opportunities along the way if anybody needs to get some water or grab a snack.

It’s still a little weird out there, so we’re keeping the groups small. Each walk will be a maximum of four people, making it even better for conversation, questions, and discussion. So bring your walking shoes and your curiosity, and let’s go for an urban hike through Peking’s past!

The walk will begin outside the Dengshikou Metro Stop (Line 5).

Duration: About three hours

300 RMB (260 RMB for members of The Hutong and the RASBJ)


Spaces for this walk are limited, and registration is required. Details about the walk, including meeting points and payment information, will be sent by email as part of your registration confirmation.
