this place is called 前门 which literally translates to the front door. it’s a fantastic place to eat and shop, mostly with traditional very very ancient stores that sells tea pots, tea, hats, peking duck (ORIGINAL PEKING DUCK but it’s not the super duper expensive place, this is the less fancy but lunch-type place), shoes, scissors, and i think there’s a place that you can watch traditional comedy shows.
my aunt took us here but we got lost and these are the pics that i took while getting lost!
this guy is someone that stands outside the shops and attracts customers by relaying off rhymes with two half pieces of bamboo that creates a rhythm. the original beatboxer kkkz?
i rarely put stuff under the cut but this post is gonna be huggeeee so:
if you ever visit beijing this place is very tourist friendly, it’s very clean and it’s not super crowded so it’s not bad. it’s expensive though because the brands are very old and hence charge an arm and a leg for stuff but comparatively to european shops it’s really nothing. there is an amazing hat shop that charges about 500 RMB for a really good hat, less than $80 and the price varies too of course
made a compilation of all the animals that i saw on my trip
look at that chow chow!!!!! heart heart heart heart
you would think that i would see cats more..but nope
there are a few photos from ms. blurrycam so, i’m sorry
eat eat eat, i don’t know what else we do there other than eating. this is my first time trying individual pot..for hot pot. i don’t know if i like it more or not. this particular place is more Cantonese style so i was kind of confused as it didn’t have many sauces that i had wanted.
went to a temple, it’s a thing that i do, i like going there. i forgot what it’s called :x
there is a beautiful park right behind the temple, it’s really nice. a beautiful lake too, and look a tree is trying to give birth to a rock!?
i didn’t edit the purple, it actually looks like that. i can’t wait to make friends there and get drunk on the boats, you know that’s a good idea…
