Dating back about one thousand years, these neighborhoods of narrow, twisting streets represent the “real life” of Beijing, where passageways connect to courtyards of traditional compact homes. Pedicab tours of the hutongs are popular tourist attractions that normally include the Drum Tower, courtyard neighborhoods and Prince Gong's mansion.

Very crowded with local and foreign tourist. Good to walk through this "hutong". It is a narrow alley. Lots of shops, eateries bars and live music. Some traditional architecture. Good area to explore. If you like walking and can get the direction correct you will see a beautiful Drum Tower at Gulou West St and head towards the Qianhai Lake

You can easily pass a morning or afternoon here, on the main street there are a lot of cool shops to take a peek. If you already ride on a rickshaw, probably is better to do it by foot, the prices here are too high.

The area is lovely, you can see the old city here. A lot of old shops and nice things to buy. It can get quite crowded but its still worth it.

We loved this area and spent a few hours walking around in the afternoon. We then came back at night and had a meal and popped into a few different places for drinks. The last bar was really great and had a fantastic guy playing guitar and singing. I loved his voice and wished I could have stayed longer. When... More

This is where you will really feel like in old world China. Lots of unique places to eat and odd and cute shops to buy stuff. It can get crowded but you can find a quiet way around. People aren't really pushy here to sell you stuff as it's pretty laid back. Wandered around for a bit and found the... More

It is CROWDED so be careful of pick pockets. However, each stores you walk by are pretty unique! But that's not what makes Nanluoguxiang great, it is the hutongs connected to this street that makes you feel like you are in China. The hutongs have more authentic stores and bars and less people!

The main street of Nanluoguxiang is a narrow street, crowded with shops and people eating. Get off the main street and wander in the quieter side streets where shops juxtapose with residences. It was hot and humid when I visited last week and I was more receptive to offer of a rickshaw ride by a neatly dressed woman manning a... More

This is a nice shopping street with lot of ethnic stuff in small shops, eateries and icecream shops. I found many interesting innovative knick knacks to carry back home here!

The hutong promises to show the old quarters of Beijing. The main street is very crowded. It is riddled with all kinds of cafes, kiosks selling different kinds of food and beverages and souvenir shops, and you find yourself making way through throngs of people eating and drinking while walking. It has eight different lanes shooting off from the main... More
