Comments: I took my mother and sister out for a trip and stayed here. The alley outside made people feel quite broken before, but it is really unique to go inside. The environment is elegant, chic and quiet. Rustic design, facilities are modern facilities. The towels and slippers are all sterilized in bags, and the soap and toiletries are very delicate. If you want to experience the Hutong culture in Beijing, you can try to live here. The transportation is convenient, just on the alley leading to Shichahai from Nanluoguxiang, so it is convenient to go anywhere. The attitude of the staff in the store is very good, the girls at the front desk are very kind, and they are very simple and enthusiastic, which really makes people feel at home! Praise!

Let’s talk about this trip. Beijing is the imperial city and imperial capital fixed in the history books, and the mottled bricks and tiles have infiltrated the past.
The taste of old Beijing is hidden in the Beijing accent, hidden in the red bricks and gray tiles of the courtyard, flying in the beautiful royal gardens, and also settled in the slow time of strolling in the alleys. It uses less powder and daisy, and is antique, but it is a chapter of rich ink and color.
On one side is the flashing neon lights, on the other side is the silence of the imperial city, the thousand-year-old city glows with a blend of ancient and modern splendor.
Probably all Chinese people have yearning and curiosity about Beijing city. It is a place that they have heard many times on TV and news reports. The city in history books and legends has an inexplicable sense of intimacy as soon as they come in, like returning home. close.
I have never had the opportunity to take a good tour of Beijing, but this spring I finally got my wish. I saw old friends for many years and saw a different life in Beijing. There should be an exclusive style here all year round. I hope to come again in autumn to see the golden and different Beijing.
The itinerary of the two-day tour in Beijing is not too tight. I hope to have time to feel the cultural charm of Beijing.

The Forbidden City in Beijing is the royal palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties in China, located in the center of Beijing's central axis. It is one of the largest and best-preserved ancient wooden structures in the world, a world cultural heritage, and one of the most attractive attractions for me on this trip.

24 emperors once lived here. It was the imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties. It is now called the Palace Museum.

A central axis runs through the entire Forbidden City, and this central axis is on the central axis of Beijing City. The three main halls, the three rear palaces, and the imperial garden are all located on this central axis. There are many palaces symmetrically distributed on both sides of the central axis, and these palaces can be divided into two parts: the outer court and the inner court. The three halls of Taihe, Zhonghe, and Baohe are the center of the inner court, and the culture and martial arts halls are the two wings. The inner court is centered on Qianqing Palace, Jiaotai Palace, and Kunning Palace, with the east and west palaces as two wings, and the layout is rigorous and orderly. The four corners of the Forbidden City have exquisite and exquisite turrets, which are exquisitely constructed and beautiful. The palace city is surrounded by a palace wall 10 meters high and 3,400 meters long, with a 52-meter-wide moat outside.

Arrive by subway early in the morning, queue up for security checks, buy tickets online, and enter the park directly with your ID card.

Strategy: To visit the Forbidden City, at least ensure that you have time to visit the middle road and the west road, because the middle road can best reflect the magnificence and magnificence of the royal architecture; while the west road is the area where the empresses of the Ming and Qing Dynasties lived and lived, and you can visit the empresses and concubines again The object of the concubine, the Empress Dowager Cixi listens to the government behind the curtain. If you have enough time, you should visit the East Road, because all kinds of treasures of the Forbidden City are displayed here in turn. In addition, the Forbidden City has a long history. If you want to fully experience the profound cultural heritage of the Forbidden City, it is best to ask a tour guide or rent a tour guide at the tour guide office on the right outside the Meridian Gate of the Forbidden City.

Day 1 Nanluoguxiang

Nanluoguxiang is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Beijing and has the most well-preserved courtyard area in Beijing. Nanluoguxiang starts from Gulou East Street in the north and ends at Di'anmen East Street in the south, with a total length of 786 meters and a width of 8 meters. The historical relics of Lifang in Yuan Dynasty.

Nanluoguxiang runs north-south, with 8 alleys neatly arranged in the east and west, showing a "fishbone shape", continuing the "chessboard" pattern since ancient times. The whole block looks like a big centipede, so it is also called Centipede Street. It is said that there used to be two ancient wells at the northernmost part of Nanluoguxiang, which happened to be the two eyes of this centipede. This kind of hutongs and courtyards with overall texture is the concrete embodiment of the checkerboard urban architectural pattern in the capital of Yuan Dynasty.

The north of Nanluoguxiang block is Gulou East Street, the south is Di'anmen East Street, the west is Di'anmenwai Street, and the east is Jiaodaokou South Street. The rectangular plot surrounded by these four streets is exactly the two squares of Yuan Dadu. With Nanluoguxiang as the boundary, "Zhaohuifang" to the east and "Jinggongfang" to the west, Nanluoguxiang is the boundary lane between the two.

From south to north, the 8 alleys in the west are Fuxiang Hutong, Suoyi Hutong, Yuer Hutong, Maoer Hutong, Jingyang Hutong, Shajing Hutong, Heizhima Hutong, Qiangulouyuan Hutong, Hougulouyuan Hutong, Nanxiawa The 8 alleys in the east are Chaodou Hutong, Banchang Hutong, Dongmianhua Hutong, Beibingmasi Hutong, Qinlao Hutong, Qianyuanensi Hutong, Houyuanensi Hutong, and Juer Hutong.

These alleys had no names in the Yuan Dynasty, and the names gradually evolved after the Ming Dynasty. For example, Ju'er Hutong was called Ju'er Hutong in the Ming Dynasty, and was later renamed Ju'er Hutong. It was only called Ju'er Hutong when Xuantong was announced in the Qing Dynasty, and it has continued to this day. Lifang is the basic unit of ancient Chinese residential area organization, and also the basic unit of urban planning and construction. It was called "Li", "Lu" or "Lu Li" in the pre-Qin period.

Since the Northern Wei Dynasty, the title of "Fang" has appeared. During the planning and design of Dadu in Yuan Dynasty, the Lifang system was still continued. The whole city was divided into 50 squares, with wide and straight streets and alleys between the squares, like a chessboard. In the Ming Dynasty, Beijing was divided into 28 squares, and the two squares were combined and called "Zhaohui Jinggong Square". In the Qing Dynasty, it belonged to the Xianghuang Banner.

During the 800 years of historical changes, the structure of Lifang in Yuandadu has been completely changed. However, the Nanluoguxiang area still preserves the historical relics of Lifang in Yuandadu very completely. The pattern of the hutong is so complete, and the mansions and courtyards of various shapes in the hutong are colorful.

Aunt Cheng? cos? It feels great.

Nanluoguxiang is a representative of Beijing hutongs. The exquisite courtyards and local residents all interpret the unique style of Beijing. Strolling around Nanluoguxiang, after eating noodles with fried sauce and fried belly, a bottle of Arctic Ocean, it couldn’t be more perfect.

There are really residents living here. It’s not as simple as a scenic spot. If you are not careful, you will break into other people’s homes.

Snacks full of childhood memories.

Starbucks is also decorated in an antique style.

The second day Temple of Heaven The Temple of Heaven was first built in the 18th year of Yongle, Emperor Chengzu of the Ming Dynasty. The elegant and solemn Zhai Palace and the thousand-year-old trees with a permanent history form the unique garden landscape of the Temple of Heaven. However, compared with Yuanmingyuan, there is still a big difference. If time is limited, it is recommended to only visit Yuanmingyuan.

According to historical records, there are formal activities of offering sacrifices to heaven and earth, which can be traced back to 2000 BC. It was the place where emperors of Ming and Qing dynasties offered sacrifices to heaven and prayed for a good harvest every year.

In the thirteenth year of Jiajing (1534), Huanqiu was renamed the Temple of Heaven, and Fang Ze was renamed the Temple of Earth. After the Great Sacrifice Hall was abandoned, it was changed to the Praying Valley Altar. In the seventeenth year of Jiajing (1538), the Altar of Prayer for Grain was abolished. In the nineteenth year, a Daxiang Hall was built on the altar, which was completed in twenty-four years. In the 16th year of Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1751), it was renamed the Hall of Prayer for Good Harvests. After that, it was repaired and expanded many times.

It was first built in the 46th year of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty. Yuanmingyuan Ruins Park is located in the western suburbs of Beijing. It was established on the site of Yuanmingyuan in 1988. It consists of three gardens: "Yuanmingyuan", "Changchun Garden" and "Qichun Garden". Yuanmingyuan enjoys the reputation of "Garden of Ten Thousand Gardens" and is a world-renowned model of royal gardens combining Chinese and Western styles.

The Old Summer Palace has inherited Beijing’s more than 3,000 years of excellent gardening tradition. It not only has the elegance and luxury of palace buildings, but also has the euphemism and variety of Jiangnan water town gardens. At the same time, it has absorbed European garden architectural forms and integrated different styles of garden architecture. It was the most outstanding large-scale garden at that time.

During the walk, there are scenes everywhere, and you can feel the ingenuity of the designer, and the connection between each scene and each "island".

Goodbye here, goodbye elsewhere Compared with other cities I have been to, Beijing for the first time has a very familiar and friendly feeling. The itinerary is not compact, stroll around and savor every place. This city has accumulated too many people and their stories that have only appeared in history books. Every brick and tile has a heavy history, but it also has a calm and breezy atmosphere that has changed over time. If you say which city you want to settle in for a period of time, Beijing must be the first choice, and you can only experience the difference between this place and other places if you have really lived here.
