written in front

Before the trip, we sorted out our travel demands. In addition to the Forbidden City, which is our biggest appeal, Jonny wants to experience Beijing Hutong culture + eat meat. For a foodie like me, boiled mutton, marinated sugar, and fire fried sesame cakes, Aiwowo bean stuffed sesame cakes, and donkey rolls are all haunting my dreams! Once you have these things in mind, start planning your itinerary.

??in principle

Not tired, delicious! (Middle-aged people must have enough sleep and not be tired when traveling. The food at the scenic spots should be concentrated and delicious, otherwise they will be too tired)

Beijing is square and square, with concentrated scenic spots, so it is easier to plan. Our entire itinerary is divided into 1? Central, 2? Northwest, 3? Southwest, 4? East and Northeast. ?In order not to be confusing and more instructive, my travel and food itinerary below will be written based on these pieces! Strongly recommended, generally recommended, of course there are some pitfalls, enjoy~~

1. Attractions and delicacies in central China: Don’t go this way to the Forbidden City!
Forbidden City (??Strong push)

Needless to say whether it is worth going or not, it is definitely a place that people all over the country must go to.

You must pay attention to this point: If you don’t go to Tiananmen Square, you can go directly to the Tiananmen Gate and enter the Forbidden City. Entering from Tiananmen Square, it's really far away, but that's okay, there are so many people queuing up, and it's still a weekday. It's hard to imagine what a grand weekend and holidays are.

(I'm going to take off my makeup after standing in line for a while)

?Tickets: Remember to buy tickets on WeChat in advance. If you don’t buy tickets in advance, you may not be able to buy them! 60 for adults and 20 for students.

?About renting the explainer: I don’t think it is necessary to rent it. Just listen to it in the official account [Fun in the Forbidden City], and bring a map. I didn't feel particularly powerful when I rented it. Even if you must rent it, it is recommended not to rent it as soon as you enter the door. There are too many people queuing up. You can still rent it when you enter the main hall inside, so you can rest assured.

?Be sure to bring some food and drink: I brought 1.5L of water, which is not enough at all! I also bought a few bottles in it, but I was still thirsty when I came out. I kept walking inside, and I would definitely not be able to get out for an hour or two. Occasionally, I would take a break to eat something to replenish my energy. I brought beef patties, bean paste pies, pea yellow and other sweets. Someone actually brought a big bag, just like an outing, in fact, it is unnecessary, just bring some, and don't stay overnight.

Ticket price: 20 for students, 60 for adults

Closes at 5:00 p.m., no entry 1 hour before


1 Monday closed

2 Book online at least one day in advance, no tickets are sold on site, only 80,000 tickets a day

??Old six door frame stewed (??Strong recommendation)

Address: No. 14-16, Menjia Hutong (near Langfang Ertiao? Baodu Feng, 5 meters to the left)

Attention Southern friends! Just order a bowl and try it, you may not be used to it! !

Hhhhhhhhh I ate deliciously by myself, but Jonny suddenly told me that he was not used to it. He could eat the large intestine, pork lung and tofu separately, and it had a strange taste when mixed together hhhhhhhh

But? I think it's delicious? It's much more delicious than what I ate at Huguosi! Especially with vinegar, vinegar is the essence! The boss has always asked to add vinegar.

The store is relatively small, just a few tables? I came after ten o'clock in the morning, and there was only one table of us. If the meal came, it would be miserable, and the queue would be exaggerated.

??Halal Lao Bao Du Man (Qiandian) (generally recommended)

Address: Next to Siji Minfu Roast Duck Restaurant, No. 32, Langfang Ertiao

Another restaurant lying on my gourmet list. I chose the restaurant in Daqianmen, and I just pulled the weeds together with the stew.

|Exploded lamb belly kernels^The fried lamb belly kernels are very tender? Yo! The plate is served hot, so be sure to finish it quickly, as it will get older if it cools down for a long time.

|Small ingredients^ I really like the dipping sauce, it is very [firework] mellow! If there are not many things to order, one dipping sauce is enough! A bowl is quite a lot.

|Mending Meatloaf^Mending Meatloaf is relatively small, try it at will, it is quite salty, it is not a must-eat, you can order it if you want.

2? Attractions and delicacies in the Northwest: This store must be punched!
Houhai (?? Strong push)

Is Houhai worth going? Of course it's worth it!

For that circle of Yangliu Yiyi, it was worth it! If you walk on both sides, there will be no hawkers hawking, and there will be scenes of ancient emperors traveling in a trance.

If you want to listen to ditties, there are too many small bars here! (I'm not interested in this kind, there are too many Gulangyu in Zengcuoan)

What's more, there are many other memorial halls worth visiting in this area! Soong Ching Ling Memorial Hall of Prince Gong's Mansion and so on.

There are a lot of delicious food! Fuhuazhai Pastry Shop, hot-boiled mutton, Huguosi snacks, etc. You must go to Fuhuazhai Pastry Shop! Favorite dessert shop of this trip!

??Fuhuazhai Pastry Shop (??Strong recommendation)

Address: F1-2, Building 11, No. 85, Huguosi Street, Xinjiekou Street (the first floor of Huguo Xintiandi faces the street, Exit B of Ping'anli Subway Station)

Be sure to order this one! I beg you! Absolutely won't regret it!

The overall atmosphere is the atmosphere of the royal family, the royal yellow color, and the table inside is similar to the emperor's living room, and the music played is also Beijing-style ditties.

I ate alone, so I didn't dare to order too much, so I ordered 4 samples. You can order half portion of pea cake and kidney bean roll, in fact, half portion is quite a lot for one person. Because there are 3? pieces of kidney bean roll half and 2? of pea cakes, they will be cut into 4? pieces.

Secret|Ruyi Kidney Bean Roll^The part of the kidney bean cake is very delicate, with osmanthus sesame seeds on the left and hawthorn strips on the right. The overall taste is sour and sweet.

Secret|Pea Cake^I really love it! The top layer is preserved fruit, and the pea cake can clearly taste the pea grains. It is a paradise for bean lovers! Not too sweet, just right, not greasy to eat alone.

Secret|Sun Nierfen White Cake^Must order? I heard that it used to be a symbol of wealth. It is a simple and delicious pastry with a milky taste of eggs.

Secret|Cheese Fruit Ice^I didn't expect it to be so delicious! Very special? It’s not the ordinary cheese sweet taste that you usually eat. It has a handmade taste and a high-end handmade feel. I don’t know how to describe it. Anyway, order it!

In fact, I want to try every one, but unfortunately, one's stomach is really limited, and after dinner, I feel a little regretful, and I will save it for the next time!

??Yao Ji Fried Liver (Drum Tower) (generally recommended)

Address: No. 311 Gulou East Street (southeast corner of Gulou Bay)

I think this place can be passed by, there is no need to make a special trip.

I ordered the signature fried liver and buns, both of which are quite satisfactory.

Let me tell you a funny thing. I didn’t eat any vegetables for a day, and my throat was so uncomfortable that I ordered old Beijing kimchi. I asked the clerk if it was not spicy, so I felt relieved. result! It's not spicy but salty! The kind that can be served with porridge, my god! I have the illusion of drinking poison to quench my thirst hahahahahaha! By the way, that cucumber can be ordered, it's delicious!

3. Attractions and delicacies in the east and northeast: How many pitfalls are there?
798 Art Zone (?? Strongly recommended)

In my mind, it is a must-see place in Beijing! One of the symbols of Beijing's cultural charm.

It was originally the site of the old factories of the electronics industry such as the former state-owned 798 factory, but now it has transformed into an art district, and there is style in every shot.

There are various exhibitions, large and small, every day in the area. By 2019.9.1, there will be Picasso's authentic works on display! ! There are also small copper art exhibitions, Internet celebrities' Broken Love Museum, etc. I think it can meet everyone's needs!

Some need to be charged, some are free, and the frugality is up to the person.

The traffic is not very convenient, there is no direct access to the subway, the subway or bus or walk, about 1 km away.

There are also many coffee shops, western restaurants, and milk tea shops in the area. It's no problem to go shopping and rest all day.

Sanlitun Taikoo Li (? Not recommended)

Everyone who comes to Beijing for the first time will probably come here! If you are short on time, really? Recommended!

?The transportation is inconvenient. We walked to the nearby Agricultural Exhibition Hall by car. There were many people in the car, and it was not easy to park and take a taxi.

? Don't come if you are not prepared to spend a lot of money. Here are some big fashion brands and Internet celebrity brands, only the first floor is considered ordinary consumption, and it is no different from shopping malls.

There are too many young ladies and beautiful little brothers, and I feel like I'm really stupid when I walk among them. Like a village girl suddenly appearing in an idol drama hhhhhh

What makes me feel a little uncomfortable is that a bunch of gray-haired uncles with long guns and short cannons have been staring at the cool ladies and sisters. But it's not age discrimination. I see this age with my eyes, which makes me feel a little weird.

Turn to the back and see a lot of people changing clothes. Only then did I realize that this is someone else's show, and the clothes are changed in sets, and they are also specially photographed

??Baikui Laohao Restaurant (Jiaodaokou Branch) (??Strong recommendation)

Address: No. 158, Jiaodaokou South Street (near Ping'an Street)

A time-honored restaurant that is worth visiting specially!

There are quite a lot of branches, I chose the one closest to the hotel (Jiaodaokou store). ?The stir-fried dishes start at 11 o'clock. If you want to eat stir-fried vegetables, remember this time and come back later.

We passed at 10 o'clock, ordered a bunch of breakfast without hot fried dishes, and were very full.

|Sugar fire^It is made for sugar fire, the skin is very crispy, and the inside is a little dry, which is normal, the overall is good, and it is worth eating.

|Jingdong Meat Cake^This is very delicious, especially recommended? There are 4 pieces in total, and each piece is full of meat. The crust is not thin but not too thick. For the filling, Don't care too much about the crust. When eating this kind of meatloaf, remember to dip it in vinegar, it is full of flavor and delicious! Strong push

|Chicken soup wonton soup^It is a must for breakfast, especially after eating so many greasy staple foods, 10 yuan a night is very cheap, the soup is light and delicious, the wontons are quite large, and the fillings inside are also delicious.

|Scallion Tofu^I ordered it when I saw it was very delicious. In fact, it doesn't match breakfast a bit. The taste is relatively dense and the taste is good.

|Bean noodle balls^ This soup is actually made of sesame paste, I like it very much. It’s been a long time since I had this kind of bean noodle-flavored meatballs.

After eating so much, I can’t eat stir-fried vegetables at all. Next time I have a chance to try stir-fried vegetables again. I’m looking forward to it

??Laohuihui Snacks (Zuojiazhuang Store) (??Strong recommendation)

Address: Building 4, Zuojiazhuang Middle Street

The first meal off the plane is handed over to it!

|Vinegar Mushu^Mushu meat must be served! Look at the meat? How big and thick? Look at the eggs? There must be five or six? Who can not love sour and fragrant?

|Bean stuffed sesame cake^Is the name bean paste pie serious? It's obviously because I'm afraid that the bean paste will be scattered, so hold it with a layer of skin!

|Ai Wowo^Ai Wowo is the only one I think is average, probably because of the last two? The powder on the outside is almost gone, but it can't stand the deliciousness! Soft and waxy love it!

|Mutton boiled noodles^Must call for mutton boiled noodles? It’s been a long time since I’ve had a decent bowl of noodles. Looking at the soup, the color is quite dark, but it is not salty at all! This amount is quite large, friends in the south pay attention, you may not be able to finish it

|Seed cake with beef^There are really a lot of beef patties! God! tasty! (I am a long-term resident of the South and feel that it is a little salty, so is the sauced beef)

?? Mom's Taste (? not recommended)

Address: China Red Street, directly opposite the east gate of Gongti (bottom shop on the east side of Meilin Building)

obedient! There is no need to come here to eat!

I haven't eaten rice for several days, so I found a restaurant nearby to eat when I came to Sanlitun for shopping. One person orders two dishes, the overall taste is quite satisfactory, not the kind that is specially eaten.

|Vinegar Mushu^The meat of Vinegar Mushu has a heavy powdery feel and a slight fishy smell. The eggs are not very tasty, and the only thing that tastes good is the fungus.

|Spicy Stir-Fried Liver Point^Spicy fried liver point is not bad, it doesn't have any fishy smell, so it goes well with rice.

The door face is quite small, it looks like a back door. It's quite big to go in, separated into a small second floor, and there are quite a lot of seats!

??Braised shop (generally recommended)

Address: No. 442, Dongsi North Street

The overall taste is salty, and the taste is nothing to say. Saltyness is not a shortcoming of others, it may be that I am not used to it

|Draft beer^ What surprised me the most was draft beer! The taste is rich, the layers are rich, and the color is beautiful!

|Mutton skewers^The lamb skewers taste good, and they are grilled just right and very fragrant. It would be perfect if the chef could sprinkle less salt!

|Sauce chicken^Sauce chicken is delicious and cheap! One is only 28?

I came late and many side dishes are gone, which is a pity! Find a day to try the signature stew!

The next day, I came here to eat stewed fire! Taste the taste of the old shop

|Tofu Nao^Never tire of eating! If you don't know what to eat and are afraid of any taboos, you can order this!

|Wonton^Wonton is also a safe and reliable breakfast! The wontons are big and the soup is delicious [强]

|Stewed and boiled on fire^It's full and a big bowl 25 I ordered a small bowl! There are a lot of ingredients and the taste is good. The fat sausage is really fat.

|Spinach with Nuts^When it is cooked as a side dish, there is no oil gluten and it feels heavy and stuffy

??Shanghai Loquat Duck King (generally recommended)

Address: 20 meters east of Elan Hotel, Chaoyangmen Inner Street

If there are many people passing by, I advise you not to wait! Only a few ducks are sold each time, and half a duck is sold, and some people have to wait for more than an hour!

If you’re like me and don’t go there until after nine o’clock in the evening (non-meal time), you can buy it and try it! Even if it's just me, I've waited for ten minutes! The store will cut it for you and wrap it in tin foil.

Delicious all the way! The outside is burnt and the inside is tender, soft and rotten, and it is heavenly when you take it to your mouth and blow it with beer!

18.8 a catty, very cheap in this position! (The roast duck in our village is 23 per catty, and it is not freshly roasted)

4. Southwest food: so many delicious food!

In the southwest, I only went to Niu Street, which is probably a halal street, where there are many beef and mutton sellers. We ate steamed cakes here, as well as hot-boiled mutton, and originally planned a Mending meat pie, but unfortunately, there were too many hot-boiled lamb orders, so we couldn’t eat meat pies at all, so this shop was put on hold and kept. Let’s eat it next time (the one who didn’t go is called [Shiji Meat Pie], if you have a belly, I recommend you to go!)

??Ibao lotus leaf steamer cake (??strongly recommended)

Address: 1st Floor, Halal Supermarket, No. 5 Niu Street (near the input alley)

It is very delicious? If you pass by, you must buy it.

There is a full layer of jujube paste on the top, and there are many big red beans on the glutinous rice below. Imagine that the wet jujube paste and sticky hot glutinous rice fill your tongue and mouth, and suddenly you chew a big red bean with a rustle, sweet ? Glutinous? Soft? Whoops, glutinous rice lovers, go crazy! It's very similar to the uncooled cold cakes I ate at home when I was a child

It costs 16 yuan and 8 yuan a catty, which is almost the weight of a box. If you want to eat right away, remember to ask the clerk for a pair of chopsticks.

??Jubaoyuan (Niujie Main Store) (??Strong recommendation)

Address: No. 5-2, Building 1, Xili Commercial, Niujie (next to the Muslim supermarket)

Apart from the fact that there are too many people and it is difficult to line up, there is really nothing wrong with it! Delicious and cheap, convenient transportation, strong recommendation!

|Yipin Shaobing^Must order? Promise me that you must order it! Crunchy and fragrant, the sesame sauce is rich in flavor, and it can be eaten in just a few bites.

|Grilled lamb skewers^The lamb skewers I ate a few days ago were a bit salty, but the ones from Jubaoyuan were not at all.

|Gold Medal Lamb on the Brain^|Hand-cut fresh lamb^|Snowflake Fat Beef^There are plenty of ingredients, a full plate. The freshly cut ones are very fresh and fragrant, super satisfying to eat? Served with special | sesame sauce condiments^ It's absolutely amazing. The meat is not finished yet, and the sesame sauce is gone

The food was served very quickly, and there was no phenomenon of poor service due to the large number of people.


If you plan to go to this restaurant, remember to go half an hour before the meal time. We arrived at about 4:30, there was no queue, and there were already a lot of people eating inside, which is unbelievable.

How is my itinerary planned?


Take the plane in the morning, take the airport line (25) to the urban area

Arriving in Beijing at noon, I ate at the Laohuihui Snack Bar in the Northeast on the way

In the afternoon, I put my luggage away, took a short rest and set off for the northwest (Houhai)


Midday (Forbidden City and Qianmen)

Dusk and Evening Southwest (Niujie)

In fact, this plan is not very smooth. Why didn't you go directly to the northwest direction, which is very easy to follow? It’s because there are Houhai’s own other memorial halls in the northwest, and it takes a long time to visit. After visiting the Forbidden City, I don’t have the strength to walk around, so I went to Niu Street in the southwest, which is not very smooth but the traffic is convenient.


Northeast and East (798 Art District and Sanlitun)


After breakfast in the morning, I rushed to the airport. Fortunately, there are good meals near the hotel, otherwise I would have to run again!

I originally planned to go to the National Museum to take a peek, but I saw the queuing up at the security check that day... emmm... Excuse me

The hotel I stayed in was not bad!

Come out to play, the first element of choosing a hotel is convenient transportation!

After searching the Internet for a long time, I selected this Hanting in the Dongsi Subway after comprehensively considering: transportation, location, sound insulation, decoration (I like simple and warm lighting), room size, hygiene and other conditions. I think 500 a night in Beijing is also acceptable.

After checking in, everything was as expected, because I lived in a similar room type in Shantou before.

What makes me feel very convenient is that there is a Huimin supermarket downstairs and across the road, where you can buy fruit and water with high cost-effectiveness (I feel like I can search for it), and there are also very good restaurants within a few hundred meters nearby. Before leaving, I can eat a good meal without too much time, I am satisfied!

(Peaches are delicious! I want to eat them every day)

By the way, there are four massage chairs downstairs, which is life-saving for tourists who have been walking for a day! (Although the effect is actually not that great, it is very powerful to improve a little fatigue!)

If you also bought Nanyuan Airport...

This tourist really made a mistake and actually bought a plane from Nanyuan Airport

?The suitcase can’t get on the plane: all the luggage must be checked in (although it says 10kg is free to carry, almost no luggage can meet the standard, okay? The standard that can meet the standard is the school bag, and the small suitcase is not good at all) and the air ticket is not much cheaper. huh, almost crying when I came

(Small suitcases of this size cannot be brought in)

?Bring a water glass (who will bring it?): There are so many people because the airport is too small. The inside is also chaotic, just like the train station. There is no disposable water cup in the place of the water dispenser, I cry!

?Don't bring self-heating rice, I didn't know, I brought it and threw it away, I feel so distressed, wow, I'm crying

??Must-see Guide

1. Download the Yitongxing app, scan the QR code directly to take the subway, no need to queue

2. To exchange change, you need to take the bus (the bus in Beijing starts at 2 yuan, and the fare increases for more than 10 kilometers)

You can also go to the subway window to apply for a bus card, with a deposit of 20 yuan (refundable). Because we arrived at noon, the window to apply for the ID card was closed, and we couldn’t do it, so we forgot about it later.

3. Beijing will be relatively dry. I am used to the weather in the south, and I feel very dry when I go to Beijing and use the same skin care products. It will be better to apply a mask at night. ? Remember to bring lip balm, I feel dry mouth throughout the trip.

Beijing is square and square, and the subways extend in all directions. You can't go wrong by following the map! Beijingers are also very enthusiastic. If you don’t understand, ask more, and they will guide you very enthusiastically~
