Explored our new neighborhood. Tried recommended dumpling place and ordered too much food. No regrets there, everything was so good! Went down to Tiananmen Square and explored the mall across the street. Cool street food there. This is definitely the place you should start in Beijing. Walk around and try some Bao and some duck tacos and stop for some hot pot if you are hungry. We ate too much street food and didn’t make it to the hot pot but we will try it later for sure. Most of the shops here have a little bit of English and there is a Starbucks so it is a safe place to start off in China. This is also where most of the hostels are so if you need a really cheap place to stay, you will probably end up here.
