About
When darkness falls, the lights rise. And the capital city sparkles. This private evening tour combines the modern and traditional in a memorable three hours. We start with the popular night market at Wangfujing Street, a pedestrian-only zone. Good place for a snack. Are you brave enough to try delicacies like roasted centipede, grilled grasshopper, or spicy spider? Next we visit Yandaixiejie Street, deep in the protected old city. About a 5 minute walk away is Houhai Lake in the Shichahai neighborhood, Amid the ancient city find an enchanting nightlife: cafes, bars, teahouses and restaurants, some that stay open until 2:00 am. Next you'll see from the comfort of your private car two of the city's brightest lanterns: the Bird's Nest, where opening ceremonies of the 2008 Olympics took place, and the colorful Water Cube. Finally we'll drive through the Central Business District and see the CCTV Tower and a new landmark of the city, Zhongguo Zun, Beijing's tallest building.
