Dating back about one thousand years, these neighborhoods of narrow, twisting streets represent the “real life” of Beijing, where passageways connect to courtyards of traditional compact homes. Pedicab tours of the hutongs are popular tourist attractions that normally include the Drum Tower, courtyard neighborhoods and Prince Gong's mansion.

love the little shops and the old world charm of this place. Was able to buy some cheap souvenirs. There is a food hall where you can eat local cuisine.

I walked 15min from Shichahai subway to this so called old streets or hutongs. Nothing representative of old days except some modern pedicabs. Narrow alley with continuous honking by electrical mopeds. Mostly populated by snacks peddlers.

Too crowded, only tourists, too commercial, not a traditional Beijing hutong. Food selection was average, some branches open few shops along the same streets. Worth one time visit, no need to return again.

Crowded. Dusty. Same chain stores have multiple branches on the same street so food varieties are limited. Food tasted no better than other places if not worse. Choose other places for better experience.

Although this area is very touristy, it is still worth a visit as you can get lost in the sights, sounds and aroma of the surroundings. It is a rather commercially focused area where you can find a Starbucks (I saw one at least) and...More

During a short business trip to Beijing I had the opportunity to walk the city a bit. Although considered too commercial this neighbourhood is totally worth a visit. The atmosphere here is simply amazing and different from surrounding shopping areas despite it's mostly restaurants and...More

The main strip is more like a mall rather than a traditional Hutong. It’s lined mostly with food chains and tourist shops, with only a handful of more unique boutiques (eg. x-creativity soul art shop) that are worth entering. I’m not even sure if those...More

The best subway access is the Nanluoguxiang Station at the southern exit from the Hutong. Nanluoguxiang is on both line 6 and line 8 (the start of line 8).

Hi Maggie. Welcome to Beijing! It depends on how many places they will take you to and how long is the trip. Is it a one-day long trip? How many Hutongs does it include? Is lunch included? The benefit of taking a Hutong trip... More
