Explore the rich culture and heritage with Beijing Amblers at the suburb of Mentougou, southeast of Beijing. Tongzhou is known for its ancient canal and thousand-year pagoda, stone lion bridge, the Mosque and the architectures of western church schools. While Tongzhou has been fast changing with the new urban plan of relocation of the capital's municipal bureaus and organizations to Tongzhou, the new center of Beijing. But if you are willing to go to explore further outside the six ring road, the real rural Tongzhou will unveil in front of you: the ruins of old town gate towers and a pristine ancient village connected by a beautiful arch bridge with many carved stone lions, and peaceful canal with sheep eating the grass along the banks, all hidden amidst the construction site and bustling market. GPS couldn't find them!
