Our Family Trip to China, Part Two

There is so much to see and do in China - if you’ve never been, I encourage you to make the trip.

When traveling, I always love to visit local markets to see the different foods, crafts, antiques, and other curios that are offered. After our walk at The Great Wall, we traveled to the Huairou District in northern Beijing, where we toured an indoor market filled with interesting fresh foods and dried and preserved goods. Back in the capital city, we visited a hutong - a type of narrow street or alley of courtyard residences where more crafts and wares were sold. The next day, we visited the Beijing Panjiayuan Flea Market, also known as the Panjiayuan Antique Market - the largest, most complete and most popular market in China. 

Here are more photos from my trip, enjoy.
