Aloha all! I will be traveling in China with my brother, sister -in-law (she is Chinese), and niece and nephew in September. Due to our different departure points, I will have a full day at the beginning of the trip and two days at the end, where I will be in Beijing on my own. I know it's a crazy big city, and I'm adventurous, but not superly so. I'd love to do a cooking class or two, see an awesome traditional food/farmers market, and maybe eat out, if there's a good and easy place to go for a meal that won't be too challenging for a 50 year old LA/Hawaii girl to manage on her own.

I wanted to do the dumpling class at the Orchid, but won't be there on a Tuesday. Is there something equivalent? I will have all day on 9/14, most of 9/15 (staying at the Marriot in the Dongchang District at the beginning of my trip), and will also have the afternoon of 9/27 and all of 9/28 free (I will be staying at the Orchid in the Hutong District at the end of my trip).

Would love some suggestions! Mahalo, all!
