QianHai 前海 Lake, central BeiJing

Lotus Lane is a charming place to wander and a lively place in the evening to dine and listen to live music ...

Often mis-named as HouHai, which is actually another lake immediately to the north, these lakes form part of ShiChaHai, once the docks at the northern end of the Grand Canal from HangZhou. To the south lies BeiHai and JingShan Parks and to the north, the Drum and Bell Towers; east from there lies NanLuoGuXiang, a largely pedestrianized hutong filled with craft and speciality shops and cafes.

ShiChaHai 什刹海 scenes, BeiJing

The three lakes here - XiHai, HouHai and QianHai - were where boats from HangZhou would dock after travelling the Grand Canal.

There are still some hutongs in this area, just north of BeiHai Park, which has become a lively destination, especially in the evenings around the lakes.

Early morning at QianHai 前海 Lake, BeiJing

About 7am. QianHai is the lake between HouHai and BeiHai Park (across Di'AnMen street) and includes Lotus Lane along the south west side, with lake-side bars and dining. XiHai, HouHai and QianHai are collectively known as ShiChaHai. All three have interesting places to eat and drink, and are particularly popular at night. Between HouHai and QianHai lies the ancient JinDing bridge (JinDing Qiao); from the east side one can follow the interesting pedestrianised lane YanDaiXie Jie to the Drum and Bell Towers. Parallel to QianHai a little further east lies Nan LuoGuXiang.

Lotus Lane, QianHai 前海, BeiJing

A picturesque street alongside QianHai Lake. Lotus Lane especially comes alive in the evenings, with a variety of live music in the restaurant-bars; red lanterns, candles and neon combine, with outdoor and terrace lakeside dining through the summer.
