Tai chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from qigong, an ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. According to some records, tai chi dates back as far as 2,500 years! It involves a series of slow, meditative body movements that were originally designed for self-defense and to promote inner peace and calm. It is non-competitive, gentle, and generally slow-paced. By increasing strength, flexibility, body awareness, and mental concentration, tai chi can improve your health, too.
Next, pick up your rental bikes and pedal through the surrounding hutongs and Shichahai lake area. Along the way, pass the three lakes — Qianhai, meaning Front Sea; Houhai, meaning Back Sea; and Xihai, meaning West Sea — and stop to admire historic landmarks and learn more about traditional life in Beijing. Your tour ends at the Houhai lake area and your guide will assist you in finding a taxi or riding the metro (own expense) back to your hotel or next destination.
Please note: children younger than 14 years old are not permitted on the bike section of the tour, but can instead enjoy a walk though the Shichaihai lake area and Hutongs
