Trishaw can be commonly found at hot Beijing attractions especially the spots that close to Beijing hutongs. Especially during super peak traveling period when the roads are crowded with various types of vehicles, then you may choose to take a trishaw ride along the most typical cultural heritage of Beijing Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the Beijing hutongs. As most of the hutongs are narrow and hard for taxi driver to enter, therefore trishaw ride has turned out to be one of the most welcome transportation method that bring you all the way to the discovery of old Beijing. Anyway, do not expect a budgeted ride on trishaw as most often, the charges of a trishaw ride is more expensive than a metered taxi for similar traveling distance.
The most recommended route for trishaw ride is along the old hutongs at Shichahai (close to Houhai Bar Street). Basically, a full journey of the ride will take you about 2 hours and the stated rate for foreigners is about 180 RMB per hour. Anyway, you may try to bargain with the trishaw rider and perhaps, you may get on a ride a cheaper rate.Ã‚Â
