So unique
Mar 2018 • Family
Our guide brought us here to experience lunch with a family in their home. Best meal we had the whole trip. Kindest hosts. We then did a rickshaw tour thru the neighborhood and followed up in another families beautiful home to paint masks. Oldest part of Beijing.

Beautiful water away from the bustling crowds

Not far from the Drum and Bell Towers are lakes and waterways and plenty of cafes and bars. On a sunny day locals come to stroll, or stop for a snack before heading off. A very calming spot in the midst of a big and busy city.

The disappearing face of Beijing
Oct 2017 • Couples
We actually visited one of the courtyard houses in the CaoChang Hutong to the south of this one, but the principle is the same. With their narrow alleyways, single story traditional courtyard houses and public communal toilets which are not for the feint hearted Westerner, Hutongs once dominated the city, but in recent years many have been flattened and built over in the name of modernization.
There are various tour companies that will take you round, or you can hire a Rickshaw driver or even better still rent a bike and explore at your own pace.
For me this was one of the highlights of our visit to Beijing, and just as culturally interesting as the Forbidden City. Make sure it’s on your itinerary, because with the wave of building going on in Beijing its hard to say how long these glimpses of China’s history will remain.

We loved the Rickshaw ride down the narrow alleys

We were pleased to have lunch with wonderful guests in the Quadrangles of Beijing. The food was good and it was great to see a family home, passed down from previous generations and obviously treasured by the family today.

Hutong life in old Peking
Apr 2015 • Solo
This is was my first time visiting and staying in the Hutongs of old Peking and what a find it was! I loved it! It is safe, it is colourful, it is authentic and it is the place for the kind of visitor to a city that doesn't necessarily rate themselves or the experiences they require as 'tourist' . This is the real deal with lots of accommodation options, you can shop any trinket your heart desires, from kitsch to modern tongue in cheek takes on Chinese culture, pop-art at the 8-store. Take time to discover all the nooks and crannies that make up this intricate maze of streets and alleys. Restaurants for every possible pallet, even Starbucks made their way into the Hutong life.
Walking around the lakes, in the Shichahai area is an experience in itself, I have to admit that taking a rickshaw is part and parcel of experiencing it. I suggest you take a rickshaw orientate yourself, and then hit the spots on foot! Bars everywhere with life music and street life is real and you can either slip into a side street - the Muslim Chinese restaurant was fantastic and really cheap - and sit with locals in a bar called 'shut up and drink'!

Everyone is friendly and full of life! I would recommend a hotel/ B&B stay in a Hutong above any other spot in Beijing!

Bringing back memories of old....
We had the rickshaw ride through the alleys of this old part of Beijing.

Supposedly, the guide told us that this tour gives one an insight to how people here live in the older days here.They still do , for these people at least.

We stopped by at one of the old house to look around the interior. And get the opportunity to meet & chat with the old resident owners as well.

For most of us living in modern cities for so long, seeing these simple & old run down residences brings back memories of how we were once living like them.

You are better of walking and taking a few snaps

The houses we visited in the rickshaw ride were so pathetic. Weather cold. Public toilets which are your only access point deplorable.. Plus you have touts if you get stuck stick a gun up your face.. Better avoided and photos from the outside best taken.. Nothing great to see or reflect.

Having a Rickshaw Tour around the ancient alleyways of Beijing's Hutong neighborhood is very rewarding. Our tour group 'China Star Holiday' visited a family in one of the Quadrangles where a lunch was prepared for us.

An insight into old Beijing

Thoroughly enjoyed our rickshaw tour through the old area of Beijing & learning about the history of the area. Mrs Woo was friendly & answered our questions- through our guide as she did not speak English.
