Houhai is a part of Shichahai which has gone through thousands of years. It is an idle place with water and can see mountains, weeping willows brushing the shore, folk houses and inhabitants on the shore, and the surrounding royal palaces and former residences of celebrities, which display the endless charm of Beijing and history. People come here only to : still hear the crisp cries of insects in autumn, still see the epitome of the old Beijing courtyard complex, still chew the Royal legacy that seems to have gone away. It is said that the "sea" is actually a huge man-made lake, a pool exclusively enjoyed by the old royal family. Houhai is located in the center of Beijing, only four or five stops away from Tiananmen. It is connected with the famous Beihai River and is far away from Jingshan and the Palace Museum. Walking along the coast, you will see the red wall of Biwa if you don't pay attention to it. Outside those lofty and solemn gates, only the tall and lush trees in the courtyard can be seen, with mystery lingering in a leisurely way. Although Houhai street structure has a long history, it still has the typical characteristics of Beijing traditional architecture. There are many shops with Beijing flavor in Houhai Street.

Mystery permeates in a leisurely way. It is said that the waters of Houhai are connected with the Dragon veins of the Palace Museum, which has been a treasure land of geomantic omen since ancient times. Therefore, the ancient monks built temples here, while the princes and ministers chose sites to build gardens on the shore, and celebrities moved to the lakeside to begin their first life on the shore of the back sea. Therefore, as the saying goes, "What is the first Chahai, then Beijing City".
Houhai is an integral part of the Shichahai Sea, between the Qianhai Sea and the West Sea. Houhai is an idle place where the old Beijing people gather. The old Beijing houses on the shore, the surrounding Wangfu and the former residences of celebrities all radiate the Beijing flavor and the infinite charm of history. In spring, the blue sky is washed, the warm wind is blowing, the flowers are blooming, the ducks are playing with water, and the sea is picturesque, which makes people linger and forget to return.
Following the sign of Nanluogu Lane, I turned directly out and walked for a while. I saw a rickshaw tricycle with 15 yuan coming to Houhai. I had a big stomach and went straight to the Bag Street. The Bag Street is good and I like it very much. Looking from the map, Houhai is very big. It packs three human wheels to take you to Houhai. It's true that many bars are basically all. Of course, it's not all of Houhai. It's a large area to the south of Houhai. By Gong Wangfu, you can choose it.
All the way from Tian'anmen Gate to the Forbidden City Museum, just a few bus stops, the lake in the park is frozen, many visitors skate on it, and there are many kinds of snacks, handicraft paper-cuts and souvenirs with Beijing characteristics in the smoke bag ramp street beside Houhai. The park is too big. It's too tired to walk for a day. When someone says he doesn't want to go, he will visit it. Take a picture and then leave. Next time, he must go deep.
Yushun struggles on the road: Houhai is an integral part of Shichahai Sea, which is composed of three water surfaces: Qianhai, Houhai and Xihai. In order to distinguish it from Beihai, Zhonghai and Nanhai, it is called "the former three seas". Houhai East starts at Anmenwai Street, West to Xinjiekou Street, south to Ping'an Street, north to the Second Ring Road, covering a total area of 146.7 hectares, of which 34 hectares are in water area and 11.5 hectares are in green space. This is the ancient waters of the Yuan Dynasty 700 years ago in Beijing. Houhai is one of the basic projects in the planning and design of the Yuan metropolis in the 13th century. Since the Yuan Dynasty, the surrounding area of Shichahai has been a prosperous commercial district of the metropolis. It was the end point of water transport at that time, known as the "ancient seaport of Beijing". At that time, there were restaurants, song terraces and shops along the coast. Houhai is an idle place with water and mountains to watch, willows to brush the shore, folk houses and residents on the shore, and the former residences of the surrounding royal palaces and celebrities, which display the endless charm of Beijing and history. People come here only to hear the crisp sound of insects in autumn, to see the epitome of the old Beijing courtyard complex, and to chew the long-gone Royal legacy. Houhai is a famous summer resort in old Beijing. Snacks hidden in the alleys emit the taste of popping belly, brine boiling, sausage and tempting soybean juice sour everywhere.
Houhai is an integral part of Shichahai. The natural scenery here is very beautiful, but the most beautiful are the alleys and alleys of old Beijing, such as the big and small golden alleys in the area of golden silk sleeve, the official alleys in the South and north, the crow alleys, the white rice inclined street, the smoke bag inclined street, the southern gonggu alley and so on. There are all kinds of snacks in old Beijing, such as fried liver and soybean juice, as well as very modern bars and cafes. Suitable for leisure walk, feel the cultural atmosphere of old Beijing. It's very convenient to take the subway bus.
The Houhai/Shichahai in my impression has a special flavor of local life. It's an ancient Beijing Hutong, crossing the Hutong to a bar street, then walking along the street, you can see Shichahai, and then go on to Houhai Park, beside which there are old men fishing, old men walking dogs, and from time to time some couples walking hand in hand. This may be the only thing that this city can put down its fast-paced work and enjoy slowly. Where to live.
Maybe I have heard about Daming in Houhai many times, just like Lijiang. This time I came to Beijing. The next night, I went to Houhai with my friends. However, our trip to Houhai did not soak in bars. We just wandered around. It was not interesting, but I felt like a dream. I had no hobby for Houhai. But I decided to come to Houhai next time. I must go to the bar here. It feels good. Houhai is also a place with a long history. It is a famous place for recreation, entertainment and play in Beijing. It is a very busy place where there are high-ranking officials and noble people, but in recent years, there are too many foreigners in Beijing, so the people here are gradually living more outside. The advantage of more foreigners is that the small places have gathered the cultures from all over the world. These cultures have been merged to form the unique culture of Houhai, which is very tolerant. This may also be one of the reasons why many people like this place. There are many bars in Houhai. The most famous one is called Passenger. I like this name very much, because it gives people a feeling on the road, like our travel, sometimes it also represents the essence of life, many people are our passers-by in life. Houhai is a very busy place in the evening. Beipiao, tourists and students make it noisy and can give vent and indulgence to those who live under great pressure. Houhai is a place that people hate and love, but it's worth feeling for yourself. If you have a chance, remember to find a bar that looks good to see. Maybe you will know Houhai better than I do.
Houhai is known as the place of pursuing dreams. With yearning, a person rushes to Houhai early in the morning. Houhai in the morning is very quiet. There is no night noise in the surrounding cafes, but through the endless cafes, you can still imagine the noise and liveliness of the night here. It's good to drink a cup of coffee by the lake during the day, and laughing and laughing with friends in the evening is another flavor.
