Metal movement of the city
If you have ever questioned what to do in Beijing and what the urban tribes are like in China or are just curious about the alternative scene in China, you have to go to the MaoLivehouse.I think that you will get a good idea of what to expect from this place upon entering and seeing that your waiteris dressed in 80’s metal style, with a cowboy hat and multiple tattoos, of which one of Alvin and the Chipmunks stands outparticularly. If you still don’t understand, the last time that I went, it was a “pillow fight” themed night and afterwards, a Chinese indie band played.The small bar is located on the far north of Nanluoguxiang street.
Navigate by boat in canals
This is a quite common practice among Chinese tourists while most foreign tourists don't know that you can get to the Summer Palace by boat through the city's canals.You can take the boat close to the Beijing Zoo at subway Line 4, it goes to westthrough Zizhuyuan Park and in the end lets you off at the doorstep of the Summer Palace.As it is very popular among local people,a romantic trip with your spouse will be impossible because of the crowd.Normally the large boats won't leave until they fill up completely.Prepare yourself to be pushed around when getting on and forbid noisy tourists who take photos of every millimeter of the canal.I think this is an quite interesting way to go to the Summer Palace if you don’t have a day crowded full of things to visit and don't mind the big crowd.
Take a trip to Tianjin for relax
Tianjin,which is considered as the port of Beijing, is one of the most recommendable escapades.It is a beautiful coastal city which is just as chaotic and jam-packed as the China capital.It is located next to Beijing.It will cost about only thirty minutes by bullet train if you want to go there.You can visit it in one day and come back to sleep in Beijing.My suggestion is to see the sea by taking a boat in Tianjin and eat some fresh seafood because these are not available in Beijing.There are also many famous universities located in Tianjin like”Nankai University”,”Tianjin University”.Take a trip to these universities will be another recommendable advice because they have strong historical and academic atmosphere.Walking in a campus in a different city in fall to feel the breeze while watching students coming and going in hurry is also a wonderful experience.
