This video is from a walk along the pleasant Qianhai Lake in central Beijing, and the nearby area.

According to Wikipedia Shichahai is a historic and popular scenic area consisting of three lakes in the north of central Beijing. They are located directly northwest of the Forbidden City and north of the Beihai Lake. Qianhai Lake is one of the three lakes. Tall trees line the banks of the lakes. On good summer days people may rent boats to paddle on the lakes. In the winter many come to ice-skate.

Audio: Traditional folk music from China.

First, watch this video from Qianhai lake, then go on to read about the visit.
