After completing our customer visits for the week in Beijing tow of our hosts brought us to the Houhai area. Formed around a small lake, the area has been preserved with old-style Beijing housing. There are only a few areas in Beijing still have houses like this, the rest having been torn down to make way for more modern housing years ago.

Our stops included a gorgeous tea house that is run by the friend of one of our hosts, walking by all of the night clubs, and looking for souvenirs on a small street full of shops.
