HOUHAI

Houhai is the largest of three lakes in the area, its name literally means “rear lake”, in relation to the West and Front Lake – the three northern lakes in Central Beijing. Houhai is home to many restaurants and bars located on the lakeside.

The lake in this old cultural part of town is always bustling with activities. In the summer, tandem paddle boats are available and in the winter when the lake freezes over, children and adults come to ice skate or ride on sleighs. It is also where “ice swimmers” plunge into the ice cold waters to do laps in the winter – a sport that both young and old participate in.

Stroll along the Houhai Lake and observe local craftsmen peddling their wares. Try some animal shaped golden candy made by traditional sugar blowing techniques (similar to glass blowing) or try the old Beijing snack Tanghulu, a fruit on a stick usually haw berries coated with caramelised sugar.
