Meet at Ritan Park, Guanghua Lu
Following the success of the Legation Walk, BIS proposes a walking tour around Jishui and Houhai, the two most northerly in the chain of lakes running from the center of Beijing. The walk will take us through an area of quiet charm with views of trees and water and glimpses of old houses and mansions. The district was once rich in temples and palaces, and a few remain. We will point out places open to the public and with luck make a quick visit to some which are not. Susan Hoare and Sara Thomas will lead.
