We thought that this area would be more picturesque. A lot of the buildings were marred by cables and airconditioning units. In the square, men were playing Mah-jong and several rickshaws rattled through the streets. Some of the area was attractive though and it was...More

Visited here in November and really enjoyed the casual stroll. You can take your time and just enjoy one of the more genuine and quaint hutongs Beijing has to offer.

Had a great day here learning about the area. Beautiful old part of Beijing, the rickshaw ride was really fun and was great to see a wide area without walking!

A pleasant enough place to visit. Very much restored but original old buildings. Coffee shops and boutique breweries to keep you going. Not worth a trip just for this but if you incorporate it with a visit to the Llama temple and the Confucius museum...More

A rickshaw ride is the best way to get an overview of the Hutong. Narrow streets and day to day life with all its warts of old Beijing. Many buildings are new but built in the traditional style. We then continued on foot and were...More

This is by far one of my favourite hutong areas in Beijing. It is full of boutique shops, local designers and crafts, plenty of good little coffee shops and a small brewery. I keep finding myself coming back here. It is near the Lama Temple....More

Let's face it. Unlike what the tour guide might tell you, Hutong are neither picturesque nor particularly traditional. I mean, narrow streets, abandoned rusty vehicles, electric cables all over are enough to kill any chance of seeing something traditional. Drying laundry, urine smell and badly...More

Wudaoying, lama temple(Yonghegong) and Confucius Temple are all next to each other. You can reach here by subway. So you may plan on doing all three site seeing in one go. Wudaoying is just one narrow hutong. Not like Nanluoguxiang and Qianmen where the hutongs...More

Trip report - Six days in Beijing (18 Replies)
This trip was booked at fairly short notice and the time was constrained by work commitments at one end and the availability period of the super cheap airfare at the other end. This was why I ended up with six days in Beijing, rather than 10-14 days in China. Given recent discussion on how long to spend in Beijing, I thought it might be useful for other people. I really enjoy historic sights and gardens, although I like to see a range of other stuff too. Day 1 (Monday) Having arrived at...More

Day 2 (Tuesday) I’d booked a walking tour which included Temple of Heaven park, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and Jingshan Park. This finished about 3 pm and after that I walked up to the Houhai lakes area and explored around there. Temple of Heaven park was probably the best bit, not only for the temple, but also seeing people out exercising, dancing and playing cards. I personally could have done with a bit longer at the Forbidden City, but that may be just me. In the evening I...More

little help with itinerary (8 Replies)
There are 4 of us (26-30 years old) travelling to Beijing in early May and we need some help with our planning for 5,5 days in the city. The thing is that I have seen some itineraries around here that look very intense with lot of places to visit each day. While we would like to see as much as possible of the popular places the priority is to enjoy our vacation and feel rested after and so that we dont feel exhausted and need to go to bed at 9PM each day. Therefore I would like to know...More

You have enough time that you do not need to worry too much about a precise schedule. Just go with the flow. Be aware what is where and do more or less depending on the weather and how tired you are. The Temple of Heaven is better earlier (at least as early as 9am). Maybe on the first day you do Beihai park and Houhai.
