Hello, I am Yuhua Bi, or just call me Bi.

I am a hutong NERD (hutong, narrow lanes of Beijing), Mom of two kids, and founder of the Beijing Way Experience. I grew up in Beijing, studied in the U.S., and worked for European companies. My life totally changed after I gave birth to my two girls. I had a valuable opportunity to take time off from my busy life. While exploring hutongs in Beijing, I became fascinated by so many interesting things and amazing people!

As a girl who grew up in a former Prince Mansion (although I am not a Princess :) I feel very attached to Ancient Chinese Architecture and have explored many hidden gems in Beijing. They are like my old house.

Many "old houses" are disappearing in Beijing, together with hutongs. I want to share with you its beauty, the way of life and the heartwarming people in the hutongs!

Uncle Zhu is a good friend of mine and his family's courtyard house is the best-preserved traditonal courtyard house in Dongsi area. We will also visit Grandpa Li's private home, or sometimes, we may consider to switch to another old photographer friend Uncle Wang's home, in the same hutong area, he has taken beautiful photos of Beijing's gates of traditional courtyard houses since 1980.

To sum it all, Yuhua's tour has been one of best travel experiences that I have ever joined, and i have been to Beijing many times and have joined countless tours in the past. Yuhua is very passionate about old Beijing architecture and she has generously shared with us her in-depth knowledge on old Beijing hutongs. I felt so privileged to be invited to the homes of the real people who are staying in all these amazing Prince mansion, princely mansion (lower ranking prince), old courtyard house and their efforts in upholding this slice of Chinese architectural heritage. Mr Zhu, a direct descendant of Mr Zhu Qi Jian, a pioneering contributor and benefactor in defining centuries-old Chinese building practice and architectural system in the context of modernized, westernized China. His great-grand son still stays in this lovingly preserved "四合院Siheyuan" or courtyard house in one of the old Beijing Hutongs. We saw all the amazing old photos of his forebears, including his famously beautiful socialite-aunts, his dapper father and mother in their pre-war wedding finery, former Chinese premier Zhou En Lai etc. Yuhua also took us to one of the best preserved Prince mansions of the first ranking order, the great mansion of the grandson of Ching Dynasty Kangxi Emperior. The princely mansion was rewarded by Emperor Yongzheng to Kangxi Emperor's 13th prince, Prince Yi of the first ranking order after his passing to his nephew, for Prince Yi's brotherly support in Yongzheng's struggle to ascend to the throne and support during Yongzheng's reign. The intricate wood carvings on the high ceiling at the main entrance were truly breathtaking, definitely one of the best kept secrets in Beijing. The visit also took us to Mr Li's Mongolian Princely mansion of lower ranking order amazing abode where the kind and hospitable Mr & Mrs Li regaled us with their Beijing living experience and their efforts in preserving the amazing prince mansion building legacy . Lastly, we were so lucky to visit one the earliest Beijing buildings built based on western architectural discipline by Chinese modernist architect in the early 1900s. So if you are a architectural design fan, Yuhua's tour will be a good match for you. Not your typical "tour group" tour and I have truly enjoyed my experience

I greatly enjoyed the history walk in the Hutong. Yuhua offered a unique experience by taking me to beautiful courtyard houses where I could see well preserved ceilings and gain insights about ancient Chinese architecture in a very intimate way. I was hosted by heartwarming people who shared personal stories from their lives in the Hutong. Yuhua introduced the Dougong model, an ingenious architecture system which was developed in ancient China and used over millennia. I could touch a wooden pallet model ad try to put the pieces together, which made me appreciate its complexity even more. I very much enjoyed this experience would would definitely recommend it!
