  • The pond is surrounded by a myriad of venues that make live music at any time of the day. There are also many stalls selling some junk from the Chinese, to incense to thumbnails. Is it possible then to 80 Yuan (plus an allowance that will ask you) go around the Lake by Risho. The place is quaint and sunset is also very romantic take some pictures with the Sun going down behind the pond. Close them (practically at the entrance of the district) is what remains of the ancient city of Beijing (Houhai) with some temples and traditional houses. I felt that much was rebuilt but worth going to. If you are lucky you can also attend any ceremony.
