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.

It is a nice place with beautifully decorated shops, small food places and bars. This place also have good number of visitors. You should avoid shopping here, as the prices are many fold higher than normal Beijing prices. Here you can find one of the best youth hostel. so the crux is, if you are visiting Beijing then you must... More

There is no need for a rickshaw there. Walking will be just fine. You can get there by subway Nanluoguxiang (6, 8), and leave from Shichahai (8) when you've walked all the way. The food there is not very expensive and you can try some specialities of 老北京 there. I went there with friends, we loved it.

Although this place is a little bit over commercialized, but still worth a visit. You can find many interesting and unique stores over there.

Normally I love a nice stroll through Nanluoguxiang but travelers should be aware that as of November 2016 it is completely under construction. You can visit some of the side hutongs that branch off from Nanluoguxiang but the main street itself is unpassable and most of the shops are closed for the moment. Looks like they are repairing the paving... More

The Main Street is S luguo alley lined with a variety of shops and restaurants. Some unique but also lots of repetition. It's packed with locals and tourists. I thought was very pleasant and a nice environment day or night. Worthwhile strolling left or right into the various Hutongs to explore old Beijing and find some less touristy spots. Definitely...
