Wind down and have a drink in the hutong
While exploring the hutong near beihei park north of the forbidden city, we run into this little refuge from bustling Beijing
, called Bestime Cafe. We felt it was the ideal place to sip on a drink and re-energize after a long visit of the emperors palace (forbidden city). Imagine it as a courtyard lounge and cafe within a renovated traditional hutong house. Once you sit down you will be handed a drink and snack menu on an iPad. The atmosphere was extremely laidback and while only a block from the next main road, the place feels completely quiet. Definitely worth to stop by and take a look.
