China Trip – Beijing (Day 8: Qianmen Street, Houhai)

Today marks our last day in China. After a long Day 7, we still ended up heading to a  club later that night. We had a few drinks and partied for a couple of hours.

We started our last day a bit later than the usual. Our first stop was Qianmen Street which is just a walking distance away from Tinananmen Square.

The place has an old-style to it due to it’s design. However, the shops along the main street are all modern. We went to the side streets to grab some lunch in one of the restaurants. Food was just okay.

After lunch, some of us tried some yak meat (I think it was!) while the others tried some candied desserts. I wasn’t that fond of the yak meat. It was tough and very intense in taste.

Late in the afternoon, we moved to Houhai. We hanged out for the rest of the day here until sundown. The place was packed just like Qianmen Street. Lots of street food and other things to try out.

Our flight was late at night so we headed back to our hotel afterwards. Had some burgers nearby before heading to the airport. Alas, this wraps up our China trip! There’s still so much to see here…
