4 intense days between wandering and tasting ...

During their trip, Isabelle and Hervé spent 4 days in Beijing before leaving for Hong Kong to meet up with friends. Four days, during which they wandered and lost through the Hutongs (maze of old alleys) juxtaposing the Forbidden City, discovering the temples and the population. They share with us the bright images of their route through Beijing, most of the time plotted according to the restaurants recommended in a famous travel guide ...
