Beijing: Hutongs, The Summer Palace and a Dragon Boat Cruise

Exploring the historic Hutongs (small alley ways) on rickshaws was such a relaxing and peaceful thing to do, the Hutongs are dwindling, so do this while you can! 

The Summer Palace, a summer retreat for the Imperial family during the late Qing dynasty.  This place was very tranquil, even though it was full of people, also very hard to take photos haha!

The dragon boat and the seventeen arch Bridge.  The dragon boat was a nice feature at The Summer Palace, the bridge and surrounding architecture was also impressive.
