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.

I went to Nanluoguxiang by myself while on my school-trip in March. The narrow streets and easy access to the hutongs were absolutely wonderful and the little shopping-street packed with all the different little booths and shops were very interesting. I found that this area had almost everything for all tastes; toys, sovenirs, various street foods and vendors that overall... More

Went on a rickshaw tour organised by our guide which cost 240 yuan which only lasted 30 minuets. Visited one new front door and an " old " courtyard house with a talk about the family who lived there. The side streets were not very interesting, no local shops and very few people and lots of parked new cars. This... More

We visited Beijing on the Labour Day long weekend. It was very busy with many locals. There are many shops, restaurants and bars along the main Hutong. We stopped at one of the bars and had lunch and a drink and then walked some more. We came back again on the Tuesday and were able to enjoy shopping without the... More

Worthwhile to come here as you get an idea of what the hutongs look like up close. There are so many to see and experience. You can spend as much or as little time here as you wish. The North south street named Nanluoguxiang has lots of shops to wander around but veer off this Main Street to get an... More

We did the rickshaw ride round the Hutongs, and visited a local house, where we were given a drink, and told about the old way of life. This was interesting, but was expensive for quite a short time. The rickshaws are bicycles with a small carriage for two people. We went as part of a tour of China, and so... More

Although it is touristy, I would come here when I needed to escape Chinese immersion. But do so while enjoying historic Chinese architecture. + Romantic/quaint places to grab a coffee/beer. Some place have hidden landscaped courtyards in the back where you can relax. Most have wifi as well. + Beautiful place to stroll in a nice evening. Street is lined... More

Check about this traditional Hutong (http://www.jetbay.com/attractions/beijing/hutong). This area is full of small restaurants, shops and hotels. The hutong here are fantastic and there's normally lots of people, so its lively and fun. After meandering though the whole Hutong, I was so relieved to find a Starbucks here and rest my aching feet. What a terrific trip!

The area consists of a main north-south shopping street full of shops, restaurants, and bars, with various hutongs branching off from the main street to the east and west. The main street is rebuilt, but the hutongs that branch off from it less so. Touristy would be a good word to describe the area. Judging from the construction, it looks... More

A great hutong to check out in Beijing. It has been restored of course but it gives you a good sense of what it was like. Really cool shops along the way and some amazing restaurants! Try and find Great Leap Brewing :)
