Interesting visit
Apr 2017 • Couples
Took a rickshaw tour through this neighborhood. It ended at a lovely square with a temple on one end. There were elderly people socializing and playing cards... lovely to immerse yourself in local activities

Interesting but not well maintained
Apr 2017 • Family
Although this part of the old town is not well maintained, it will provide a different perspective of a Beijing.
It's interesting to see how people are still living in this neighbourhood, court houses without bathroom or toilet facilities.
A few interesting site and restaurants can be found around.

Nice area

Situated by the lake this area is very local Chinese away from the hustle and bustle of the bars and restaurants.
Lots of local shops to explore and enjoy.

A must see to experience the real Beijing
Oct 2014 • Business
Hutongs are the traditional neighborhoods in Beijing (and other northern Chinese cities) with narrow alleyways containing multi-family residences in courtyard like settings. What makes Ya'er Hutong special is the lack of tourists, the tranquil setting off of Houhai Lake and bustling life of the neighborhood. Ya'er is a relatively short taxi ride from the Forbidden City and definitely worth exploring. Here you will find barbers cutting residents' hair street side, small cubby hole stores selling everything from fruits and vegetables to incense and parks where residents play ping pong, gamble, exercise and swim in the lake. Don't be afraid to jump in and challenge someone to a game. A bonus is the former grand residence of Soong Ching Ling which is open to the public as a museum.
