Highlight!

having the opportunity to travel by rickshaw through the Zhonglouwan Hutong was a treasure, and we had tea and chatted with a local in her home- so gracious. Real history.

The 'Hutong' experience, to me, has been an outstanding highlight of my travelling life. We were 4 women, all over 70 and 4 men, around late 30s to 40s and we all agreed the 11 days together were unique. We were in southern Yunnan province. We cycled some 500km and, for much of the time, were in the mountains bordering... More

What a fantastic time! Travelling in China can be challenging in many ways so having an authentic experience is not always easy. The Hutong cycling is the absolutely perfect way to experience a new travelling frontier, sink into a culture genuinely and truthfully and have a great time the whole way. Everything was organised to perfection and Echo, Wendy and... More

Our family of five did the noodle making class. Michelle, our instructor, was awesome. She was patient with our kids, hands on with helping us with technique and had great explainations about the various ingredients. I am a fairly experienced cook and still learned a great deal during our class. It was also interesting to hear about her experiences living... More

The Hutong was a wonderful evening hosted and instructed by Miya. The class was small (10 people) and informal. The class focused on making Chinese Soup Dumplings from scratch. It was fun, informative and Miya was patient and supportive. It takes some practice to make authentic dumplings and the results were exciting. Her English is comfortable and each student had...

We wandered around the hutang to find this delightful cultural center and listened to a fascinating talk by Jerimiah. Unfortunately, because of its name, it is difficult to get directions, as there are many hutangs, but only one Hutang. Fun wandering around, however.

I took it because I also did a cooking class in Thailand since I love asian cuisine in general. I don't regret it! The Hutong class was soooo much fun! They explain many things even why they choose the ingredients to cook with. The instructor was really funny and helpful with the cooking part. In the end, we had a... More

If you like chines cooking and you want to learn more about how to use cutting tools and frying in a wok attending a workshop is fun. In a great atmosphere you can really participate in this workshop and it is fun meeting other participant.
