Rickshaw travel is an excellent way to experience old Beijing culture and the hutong (alleyways). To save time, locals sometimes hire rickshaws to navigate the narrow lanes. Travelers may get a fresh perspective of local life. Rickshaws are found around some communication centers and travel hotspots. Rickshaw rates are often higher than taxi rates especially during holidays1 for the busy traffic of automobile cars; bargain for an exact price prior to climbing aboard.
