Wake Up With Beijing

You are here: Home > Beijing Food Tour > Wake Up With Beijing



While other tourists are sleeping get a chance for a true glimpse into real Beijingers starting their morning. This local morning market and street tour will begin with your guide meeting you at your Beijing hotel. Then head through the old quarter of the city, an area hidden away and often overlooked by most guidebooks. Stroll up to the morning market to watch vendors selling and locals buying fresh fruits, vegetables, meats, nuts, snacks and clothing. Wander around and get a peak at exotic foods and what produce is in season. The smells, sights and sounds of the market are sure to whet your appetite for the authentic breakfast foods we will soon be sampling.

With the rush of the morning market ending and its transformation into a parking lot, then we will have an authentic Beijing breakfast followed by a tasting of traditional Beijing snacks such as fried breads, soy milk, steamed dumplings, flour soup, dou zhi (a milk made from the mung bean that is especially enjoyed by elders) and jiaoquan ( a golden, crispy, fried circle treat).

A Brief History of Longfushi
Longfusi was a temple built in 1452 during the Ming Dynasty for officials to worship. Later, during the Qing Dynasty, it was converted into a Tibetan Buddhist Temple. The temple was destroyed by a fire in 1901 after which the area was abandoned. During the 1950’s the area would make its way back as a flea market, then become a famous shopping street akin to today’s Wangfujing Street. Today the area is most commonly associated with the morning market and Longfusi Snack Street.

-Getting up early and heading to a local market you will get a chance to see Beijing in ways that few tourists have a chance to.
-Go to an authentic, lesser toured market visiting local venues and much more.
-Shop for fresh Chinese edibles and condiments among the locals
– Try 6-8 various traditional breakfast treats and gain insight into daily Beijing life and its cuisine.

There are few things that we like more than a morning market visit. We love the local markets and think you will too, so we have put together a morning tour through the freshest, tastiest places in the local neighborhoods.
Join me on my morning market tour to get a great insight into daily Chinese life, to explore this unique area and experience its cuisine!
