What you'll do

Located in the center area of Gulou District, the exquisite Yihe Mansions were firstly established in the early 1930s, when the Republic government planned the area as upper-class residential district in the light of the renowned "Capital Project". Parasol trees lined the streets have seen different times for nearly a century, while the neighborhood keeps its old proud style. Behind the veil of its mysterious history, Yihe is just as ordinary as a peaceful urban labyrinth to most local residents including me. Every time I walk the route, the buildings, yards, shadow of trees always recall my childhood memories and generate new inspirations, which are exactly the fascinating stories I'd like to share you with. In addition to the citywalk, each of the guests will also have 10 original pictures (including 5 portraits of yourself) in 5 weekdays after the experience!
