Ride through ancient neighborhoods - Hutongs, in a pedicab seeing the daily life of some of its citizens.  A trip to China would not be complete without visiting the Great Wall.  The Mutianyu section is well preserved and offers you wonderful views of the wall and surrounding area, plus is a great place for a walk on the wall.  These and other sights will give you a look into the unique, long history of China.
