It's my first time to Beijing and I had to stay two nights in a hotel as my friend was out of the city when I came. She booked me at flowering house which is a tipical old Beijing style construction, called Si Ho Ruan. It is a so lovely place locating in Hu Tong, quiet, clean and safe. Just 10 mins from subway and the main foods street Kui Jee, where you can find wonderful Chinese foods till midtnight. Hotel manager names Long. He is very friendly and knows lots of his hometown. He told me many funny stories and also good advice to help me quickly scheduling my time in Beijing. He also invited me drinking Chinese tea with him and his friends. It was amazing experience. I never took Chinese tea in that way. They call it Cha Tao.
Now I moved to my friend's house. I told her my experience there and I am sure I will stay in flowering house again in my next trip to Beijing.
When I checked out, he manager invited me to join their Chinese tea time again with his friends before I leave. I feel sorry I can not. I will go back US tomorrow. I will miss my new friend, Long, and his lovely small courtyard in Beijing, flowering house.
