With this tour you can:
Set off on a guided culinary tour along Guijie Street, also known as Ghost Street, one of Beijing’s most popular food districts. While now famous as a hub for street food stalls and restaurants, Ghost Street was once the home of Beijing’s funerary industry and crematoriums, adjacent to the only city gate through which corpses could be transported. With a lively nocturnal atmosphere and endless lines of dimly lit food stalls, the aura around Ghost Street still maintains a certain spooky charm.
Starting from Beixingiao Metro Station, wander along the street with your guide and sample Beijing’s best barbeque snacks and Peking duck. Learn a bit about the area’s history while visiting the locals’ favourite foodie haunts. Then, sink your teeth into some local desserts that were once favourites of the infamous Empress Dowager Cixi, an ancient ruler of China that some attribute with the fall of the Qing Dynasty.
