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.

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

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 :)

NLGX is a fun little touristy area that is worth a couple hours of your visit to Beijing. Very easy to access by subway, simply get off at the station by the same name. It's full of shops, little restaurants, cafés, street vendors and Chinese styled fast food. I was with my 11 month old son who generated a lot... More

Nanlouguxiang can be very crowded with locals and international tourists, but well worth a visit. It has many food options, from Chinese street food and bubble tea, to Chinese, Thai and western restaraunts. It is also a fantastic place to pick up unique souvenirs, as there are many arts/crafts/souvenir shops. If you like uniquely Beijing T shirts, head to the... More

Picked up some souvenirs here and had fun browsing through the street, had some food which was generally very delicious and cheap and although as mentioned by others quite touristy, when we visited reasonably quiet, we were walking with a trolley which was absolutely no problem.

Nanluoguxiang Alley and District is a really fun place. It is a bit touristy, but it's a lot of Chinese tourists and locals as well. There are many shops and not a lot of chains though, and the only Western place I saw was one Starbucks. It's a cool place to stroll and take photos. It can be crowded but... More

The place can get very crowded. It's a favourite place among tourist as well as the locals. It's a huge area. Some of the area are quite commercialized. I did not engage to the trishaw service available so I'm not how is it like having them bringing us to places. I am tired with all the walking but its a... More

We took the subway here as it has its own stop on line no.6, when you leave the subway station you have to get in amongst the grey coloured walls to appreciate the buying. There is a pretty lake surrounded by small street food vendors, cafes , jazz bars etc and also small streets for local people selling all sorts... More

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
