Continue walking in the area comprising the formal Imperial City to see locals exercising, dancing and playing badminton in the park.

Finally, walk through the bustling Yandaixiejie Hutong on your way to Houhai Lake, surrounded by several bars, coffeehouses and nightclubs. Admire the beautiful evening scenery and relaxing atmosphere here, where you tour ends.
