Beijing Evening and Night Tours
Beijing is a beautiful city at night with an endless variety of things to do, and Beijing Discovery Tours can help you experience it all. Here are a few ideas for you to consider:
Wangfujing Shopping Street and Night Food Market
Some of the food available must be seen to be believed. Several types of “food that you might see include scorpions, crickets, grasshoppers, cocoons, baby birds, starfish, dog testicles, goat penis, etc. - all available on a stick for eating - if you have got the stomach for it you can try it, but it is also ok just to take a look. Chicken, beef and mutton are also available for those with more traditional tastes in food.
Beijing (Peking) Roast Duck Restaurants
Try the world-famous Peking Duck where it was first invented. A delicious meal of Peking Duck includes the various small dishes, wrappers and sauces that make the Beijing Roast dinner mandatory eating for at least one meal while you are in Beijing. We have found a great little local, non-touristy restaurant that is off-the-beaten-path that makes for a unique experience while in Beijing.
Houhai Lake Bar District
Scores of bars located alongside a historic imperial lake, beautiful at night and packed on the weekends. The ancient hutongs (alleyways) bordering and around the lake have been turned into countless bars and small, interesting restaurants featuring every type of food and drink that you can imagine. A lot of fun just to wander around to have a look, or park yourself at a rooftop bar during warm weather for some of the finest people-watching available in Beijing.
Sanlitun Bar District
A fun, busy and internationally famous bar street lined with trees that is nice in the daytime and endlessly entertaining at night with many bars and some interesting restaurants. You can sit outside in warmer weather or pack inside to watch live music when it is cold or raining outside.
