Street life in Beijing a Real World China Travel Guide

505 ratings | 84610 views
Scenes from the street life in Beijing taken during our stay in China from February to April in 2016. Living in China for a couple of month is quite a challenge and more as the usual tourist attractions or the things you find in a travel guide . The daily rush hour, exotic streetfood, the old hutong houses, temples and most of all the people of Beijing made our time there an unforgettable experience. This is a real world look at what to expect visiting Beijing or China. Filmed with a Sony Alpha 6000 and iPhone 6

老旧,才是值得保护的遗产,北京一些胡同只要 居民把门前打扫干净点,就是全中国都难找的传统居民街道。

Mr. 8weltenbummler, do you know New York? You think that it could be an example to Beijing streets?
Matteo Desimio (19 days ago)
Dear 8weltenbummeler, as you said is unfair compare N.Y. with Beijing, first: the number of cars in Beijing is the same number of the population of N.Y. Secondly, the video luke alike intentional to denigrate the city of Beijing. If you watch the YouTube video named "Inside America's homeless epidemic" Oct.18/ 2018 you will see when a video is intentional. They do not just show N.Y. problem, also others large cities in the USA. I don't take sides, I like to analyze well the subjective for taking my conclusions. By the way, I know both cities it is not a possible comparison between the two cities.
8weltenbummler (20 days ago)
Dear Matteo, We been to New York a couple of times and it's one of the most amazing cities in the world. But because New York is a harbor city it has not to deal with the same problems as Beijing. The pollution in Beijing, and that's the only thing we all constantly see on the news, is also caused by its location in a valley surrounded by mountains. It would not be fair to compare both cities. But I also think that China will come up with some interesting environmental solutions in the future.

Excellent video, really caught the atmosphere of Beijing. My wife and I were there for a week early June 2018. Liked the clip of the vendor shouting out on Wangfujing Food Street at 10.35 - we sat and had a couple of beers opposite him one evening. Entertaining to watch and got phone video clip of him myself. Was the clip at 12.00 taken in the Wanfujing area as well?
Brian Rowe (2 months ago)
Thank you. Looked it up on the map and it is within walking distance from where our hotel was situated. We are hoping to be back in Beijing in November and will be sure to check it out if we are.
8weltenbummler (2 months ago)
Hi Brian, glad you like the city and you had a great time in china. Thank you also for you comment on the Shanghai video. The scene you asking for is a shopping area called The Place at Guanghua Road, between Dongdaqiao Road and Jintong W Road in Chaoyang District.

This old Hutong is now torn down or gentrified.

Thank you for the update. It's sad to see more and more traditional Hutong houses being modernized and the old city is fading

Hello Tyler, Hope you will enjoy your time in Beijing and have a amazing travel.

Beijing is a very big city. It is expanding. If you go to the edge of expansion, you will see a messy city. He has many problems in his development. Please remember to look ahead and wait a few years. These chaos will disappear without a trace, and these messes will appear in other places. This is development.
8weltenbummler (4 months ago)
Thanks, you are right. Beijing is making a great amount of progress and improvement. Hope it will keep some of the traditional quarters and Hutong houses for the future.

Chinese eat scorpions and beetles!!! Disgusting!!!
Mark Wang (6 months ago)
nope, as I know less 1% of Chinese eat those bugs. most of them were sold to curious visitors from western countries....LMAO...
8weltenbummler (10 months ago)
We actually never saw Chinese people eat this. This is a probably just a tourist attraction for western people who like to have thrill and a nice photo for their friends at home. Chinese friends told us not to eat at Wangfujing Street.

Hi @8hweltenbummler ! I'm moving to Beijing next summer and I guess that your video show a great perspective of what I'll see soon. Is there's some places to go out and make jogging? I mean (safe parks) parks or any stadium near from the expat area.
8weltenbummler (4 months ago)
Hope you will love the city and have a great time living there
Tyler Mandich (5 months ago)
I’m never been to China but I have read and heard from enough sources that Beijing is quite a safe city all around.
Birdsfly11 (11 months ago)
definitely safe parks all around Beijing but your probably there by now and have found them lol...Enjoy Beijing!
8weltenbummler (1 year ago)
Hi Shiro, There are some small parks in Beijing to practice sports outdoors, like all Chinese people do. The best place for jogging might be the Olympic Forest Park. Hope we could help and feel free to write if you have any more questions. Wish you a great time in Beijing and have fun.

Unfortunately the smog is no special effect.
