What people are saying:

In recent years, this is the first time to ride a night tour of Beijing. The last time was when I was in school. More than 20 years have passed. Passing by Tiananmen Square, Dashilan and Qianmenlou are all in the center. Due to the special period, there are not many people, most of whom are from the city, who come out for walks. Summer nights in Beijing have a smaller temperature difference between morning and evening, but they are still cool and relaxed after dark. The night in the capital is still beautiful. The lights are embedded in the edges of the ancient buildings, showing their dazzling beauty, magnificent beauty, and profound beauty in the black background. The atmosphere is vivid and vivid, and the lights give them night life.
