Attractions near the Pentahotel Beijing
An outdoor bar crawl
The symbol of Beijing’s nightlife, Sanlitun Bar Street, is home to over 60 percent of Beijing’s bars. Over a distance of just 260 metres, the street is lined with no less than 80 bars, ranging from wine and cocktail bars, to clubs with live music, dance shows and sports bars.
For something a little different, you can head to the northwest district of Shichahai, where shops and bars line the edge of a picturesque lake. Visit in daylight to take a pedicab ride around the ancient neighbourhood, discovering the hutong (alley) and courtyard-style residences that make it famous. Enjoy roast meat from Kao Rou Ji, open for over 150 years, before hopping along to the waterfront bars.
Ming tombs in the mountains
The Ming tombs are a place of sacred imperial history, a resting place of architectural grandeur and a beautiful mountain escape. Located about 50 kilometres north of Beijing, at the foot of Tianshou Mountain, the Ming tombs are the resting place of 13 Ming dynasty emperors.
Covering an area of 120 square kilometres, the 13 tombs, which vary in complexity and size, are arranged in a fan-like formation. The tomb in the centre holds Zhu Di, one of the early emperors of the Ming dynasty. Built between 1409 and 1644, the tombs represent a unity of heaven and humanity, and the sacred site is an intriguing example of traditional Chinese culture.
