Nanluoguxiang is an amazing place. You get to be plundge into the past. You get to walk down a marvelous lake. You can go on it in winter for some ice skating and boating in summer. You have all sort of shops. If you want to leave the busy daily life of beijing. I suggest for one day to go... More

If you like to see the old style Chinese house, here is a good place to see. Beijing goverment has been protected this area well. They have not been destroyed and rebuilt. There is no high building and no new building in this area. Since there are many tourists coming for visit, the owners find business chance, it is why... More

Naluguxiang is a place for ppl who like street food. You can find lots of options there. The price is okay. Its quite famous among chinese people. I think it is a good try for ppl who went for a tour in Beijing. You can some traditional chinese food.

Hip trendy, overly developed and unabashedly carnival thoroughfare. Come get your street food on (scorpions just taste like crunchy salt) and pop in to the many redundant shops. This is as close as China comes to anything considered creative except 798 maybe, but you will notice that all the stores end up being copies of each other and all the... More

First up, Nanluoguxiang Hutong is not really a hutong anymore, (although a few people still live there), but has been transformed into more of a shopping street. But having said that, its probably th hippest hutong in Beijing, and a magnet for the young crowd. Head to Nanluoguxiang for edgy t-shirts, cool handmade souvenirs (not the tacky airport stuff you...

The sky-high rental has forced out many of the original tenants here, resulting in an explosion of stores retailing FMCPs like bubble-tea and chicken wings (yes, a store that only sells chicken wings) because that's the surest way to cover your overhead in this pricey, touristy area. Most of the heritage is gone too, so culture connoisseurs would be better... More

We stumbled across this whilst walking towards Hou Hai and it was buzzing. I was so relieved to find a Starbucks here and rest my aching feet for 20 minutes. The narrow Street is full of small shops selling crepes, teas, donuts, yogurts, ice cream, and more. The TripAdvisor map had the wrong location for this which was very annoying.... More

For those looking to experience real China, this is not one of them. Catering to tourists and the young; this place is full of rara, blazing lights and pubs. Which appeals to a different crowd of tourists. I do personally prefer a quiet, thoughtful, culturally immersive place and this is not one of them. Oh well, at least I found... More

Sure. I do not like today's Nanluoguxiang. When I was a Child, There is quiet. Now, It has been developed and too noisy too commercial.
