Beijing - Dong Si Hutong

The place where we stayed in Beijing was amazing! It was in one of the oldest neighborhoods, right in the heart of the city.  We were able to have a real taste of the culture here.

Our hosts, Cindy & Niko went above and beyond what we expected.  Just to give you an idea, they found us a driver to the great wall, ordered food for us, wrote down directions in Chinese to give to cab drivers, helped carry our luggage to the subway in the pouring down rain and everything in between.  In the evenings we enjoyed eating dinner and chatting in the courtyard with them.

If anyone ever travels to Beijing, you must stay here!
