As the Drum Tower beats, a curfew is imposed...

...and the Nightwatch controls the streets! Just 100 years ago, central Beijing was the most policed city on Earth, locked down nightly by the Banner Watchmen, former Qing Dynasty soldiers charged with patrolling the hutongs until dawn. Their fascinating, forgotten story is brought to life in our newest Limited Edition Public Walking Tour, researched and created by the clever folks at Beijing Postcards.

With only 150 exclusive night passes available, some tours have already sold out, so don't delay - click here to book now or face the lash! (Yes, the Nightwatch carried whips).
