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.

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

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
