This was an unexpected treat. The subway station exits at the beginning of the Hutong which extends less than 1km to the drum tower. Each shop is unique with special foods, handicrafts, cosmetics and teas.

We visited Nanluoguxiang one evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. The alley has several hutongs (residential enclaves) along the arms but the main attraction is lined with bars, restaurants, shops and cafes. Makes for a great evening.

It depends on what kind of shops you’re looking for. In general, souvenirs, clothes shops close at around 9-10pm. Some restaurants and bars may past mid night to 1 or 2am.
