My family was in the area to do some paperwork and decided that before we head home, it would be fun to take our children through this street. It offers something for ever member of the family, bars, ice cream shops, gift stores, retro shops, snacks and clothing. Based on the prices for ice creams and snacks, I’d say everything is overpriced by about 40% but you are in a touristy area so to each his own. The only thing I did not appreciate is the delivery drivers speeding on scooters down a crowded street so if you have small children, you must be vigilant. Cars even go through here too, but at least they were decent about their speed.

i love it its a short street but great atmosphere minimalist design to the ancient hutongs with coffee shops and galleries. next to it is Confucius temple and lama temple and nanloguxiang st so worth coming over even though its a small street as can combine with other things to see in the area. can also take a stroll around the hutongs in the area.

Last week I went to L'infusion, a coffee shop in the middle of Wudaoying Hutong. First I order a coffee and immediately they asked me to pay, I gave the waitress a 100 bill, then she took a while to come back and told me my bill was a fake one, even I'm sure that money I withdrew it from the ATM, so I gave her a second hundred bill and the same happened again, after a few minutes the person in charge of the cafeteria told me both bills were fake... It's when I was sure they ripped me off changing my bills for fake ones... I asked them to give me back my money and they got mad and three guys from the place surrounded me trying to intimidate me, so I decided to leave as if I call the police there wasn't a way I can prove them that those scammers from the coffee shop gave me the fake bills... Now at least I can share my experience with everyone and give the advice to never go to these kind of places that give a really bad impression to foreigners as I was scammed and threatened by the personnel of L'infusion... I hope it won't happen tomorrow to anyone, now the lesson I learnt is to check always, in any place, the money I'm giving to pay!!!

One of my favourite shopping areas. As compare to nanluoguxiang 南锣鼓巷 and Yandai xiejie 烟袋斜街。This place is a must must go, which I found it so charming. As we were using AMap app, Andingmen subway station was one of the nearest.

Not so crowded, with combination of houses, shops and restaurants. Many shops were fine and special. We had dinner at the Veggies Table. Somehow, sure has some gifts for you to bring home.

Just beware of the moving vehicles as the alleys were narrow. Happy dining and shopping.

I wanted to go and explore the hutong of Beijing to find out exactly how people live away from the broad boulevards and avenues, the grand hotels, the upmarket shops and the luxury and ostentation that China has embraced from the West. These are the alleys and lanes where real Beijingers live. The living, breathing soul of the city.

Hutong are alleys and lanes which contain traditional courtyard residences. They are similar to medinas found in middle eastern countries. Neighbourhoods were formed by joining one hutong to another. Since the mid-C20th, a huge number of Beijing hutong were demolished to make way for new roads and buildings. More recently, the Chinese government have given hutong protected status, in an attempt to preserve an aspect of Chinese culture that was in danger of being wiped out. Hutong have been around since the C13th so they represent an ancient way of life and living.

This is a pictorial story of the hutong. I have shot the pictures in monochrome to try to capture the spirit, essence and timelessness of a way of life that was almost lost.

Wudaoying hutong is close to the Lama temple, so I went there looking for somewhere to have lunch. There was a reasonable choice of places. There are also some nice shops there. I liked this street much better than Nanluoguxiang as it was less crowded and free of junky souvenir shops.

Wudaoting Hutong is a well preserved street with many AMAZING cafes, plenty of restaurants (veggie/Mexican/Greek) and little boutiques. There's also plenty of workshops, so you can try some traditional crafts - such as calligraphy, pottery of mandala making.

If you like Nanluoguxiang, then you are bound to like this too. The bars are amazing in summer, loads of atmosphere and great to sit down outside for a drink. There are a few gift shops as well, although they are a bit pricy.

This could be combined with a visit to the Yonghegong Llama Temple, just next to it. There are several other hutongs nearby too, including Guozi Jianjie (runs parallel, a couple of hundred metres south).

You have to go at the right time for this to be good - any summer evening, or Friday/Saturday night any other time of year.

Nearest metro stations are Andingmen (安定门)(line 2, exit B, turn left and cross the roundabout, it is the little alleyway that runs off to the left, parallel with the main road) and Yonghegong Llama temple (line 2/5, exit G)
