Owner description: 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.

My wife and I traveled to China with a group called China Spree. They had arranged an optional tour that included the pedi-cab ride through the Hutong. It was a lot of fun and we got to see a part of Beijing (and China) that I feel a lot of tourists miss out on. I thought it was the best... More

As part of our guided tour we stopped at the Hutong for a rickshaw ride. It was off peak so not a lot of tourists. During peak season I can imagine the area would be a continual line of rickshaws. Our driver was awesome, making sure we had the blanket properly positioned because it was so cold. He stopped and... More

It's aimed at tourists now (which is not bad thing as I'm a tourist). We enjoyed a ride around the main and side streets and then had a wlkl around. All good fun. There is old and new and lots of poeple here. You should have a walk around th side streets. You can eat, shop, and people watch with... More

Hot spot for restaurants and bars. I highly recommend you to hire a rickshaw driver to take you around, it's totally worth it to explore the area and rest at the same time.

Our tour guide organised this so all we had to do was give a small tip to the rickshaw driver - I'm not sure what it actually cost. But it was definitely fun! I'd recommend visiting the Hutong area as it's the only place to see the history of Beijing's original one story houses. The rickshaw stopped half-way when we... More

I like NLGX much more than Wangfujing. There are many quaint cafes and the hutongs which criscross it lends it much character. There is a popsicle place called Moderns which is quite good, and in one of the hutongs, i found an excellent small eatery selling chuan'ers at 1 Yuan apiece which was great! The eatery also sells various dumplings... More

the good: it's a nice place where you can easily spend a whole afternoon wandering around, eat snacks and drink coffee; here the whitings are still well preserved; this is a historical shopping street; nowadays you can find all sorts of "modernized" trendy shops (not the usual tourist stuff), restaurants and bars; many shops with own design (from clothes to...

We accidentally happened into this area, having booked a hotel in a hutong along this street and not really knowing the area at all. It was a pleasant surprise when we got there to see the myriad food and shopping options. The street was constantly alive with people. In addition to the varied local and western food options, several restaurants... More
