What Makes It Special
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...More

A lovely alley, in the middle of the Hutong area, this pedestrian street is renovated and hosts lots of little shops and street food stores (they're some restaurants towards the end of the street). The atmosphere here is happy, most of the visitors are locals,...More

Followed the recommended route in Lonely Planet's tour book and the hike was really worth it. Excellent souvenir shops along the way, the hike culminating in Drum and Bell towers.

Nan lou Gu Xiang can be reach by subway Line 6 / Line 8. This place is next to the Nan Lou Gu Xiang Station. The place got a lot of shops (old building) and many choices of street foods as well as the souvenir.

This is probably the most well-known and touristy Hutongs in all of Beijing. Here you can find loving restored buildings, and perhaps this is the most touristy hutong in all of Beijing. Judging by the huge crowds of both locals and tourists, Nanluoguxiang remains a...More

We had a wonderful afternoon walk in the area. The weather was good and that makes our walk even better. Walk along the hutong aleys and discuver local shops to have a drink, tea or try street food. It was safe and romantic.

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.

Are these places worth visiting??? (7 Replies)
Hi, Can Summer Palace and Temple of Heaven be done on the same day? Also, is Gong's Mansion, Houhai and Nanluoguxiang and 798 Arts District worth going? I can make my 4 days itinerary to 3 if these are skipped and will give me a full day on my own for shopping. Appreciate any suggestions. Thank you.

Yes, probably best to go to the Temple of Heaven first thing in the morning and then on to the Summer Palace. Only you can decide what is worth going to. You can go shopping in Nanluoguxiang and around Houhai and also in the 798 Art District. Personally, I think Prince Gong's is a waste of time but then again I also think shopping is a waste of time.

Seems like a pretty good plan to me. You won't really be using the subway on the 6th & 8th. You can look in Things To Do for further ideas or back up plans or possible extras in the vicinity of where you're headed but your days are reasonably full as it stands. You should hire a private car to take you to Mutianyu otherwise you will waste hours on the journeys that you will want to be using elsewhere. From Lama Temple you can cross over the road and take bus 13 to Beihai Bei Men, about...More
