Beijing Tourist Photos

Two days ago I went to Yuanmingyuan Park to do some birding and there was some nice scenery around so I took a few photos. There were a few boats on the waterways and you could get a boat ride or hop on an electric cart.

Scenic waterways

And of course I had to get my photo taken with the cute figures. I have no idea what they are.

Yesterday I went to the hutongs, the old area of Beijing. It is mostly a tourist area, complete with rickshaw ride and boat rides, etc etc.

Wedding photos

There was a nice couple getting their wedding photos done. Very nice.

The bell tower

This was a tower with a bell that got struck when the invading mongols came sweeping down from the hills.
