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.

An interesting street we stumbled upon. Slightly touristy but some really lovely shops with not too bad prices. Nice gifts to take home and very safe, just be aware of the numerous bikes and scooters that appear from the huotong alleyways. Some nice cafes for...More

I would compare this place to Bugis Street in Singapore. Interesting gift and souvenir shops alongside cafes and restaurants for a quick bite. Can walk from here to shichahai which is about 10 minutes' away.

I personally think that Nanluoguxiang is a very touristy street with food stalls and shops selling souvenirs, clothings, shoes and etc. The street is quite crowded even during odd hours, packed with domestic and international tourists. Recommend to try Miss Hai's Rose Cake 海小姐的玫瑰饼 and...More

The walking street is full of small businesses, substandard food, and cheap souvenir as well. Impressive to-be-fried scorpions, starfish, cicadas, snakes, pigeons on bamboo sticks-- visually, not taste-wise. If you have a few hours to kill and a strong digestive system, it is a place...More

I went to Beijing on a business trip in June 2017. Nanluoguxiang is a very long "hutong" with many stores and food places. It is located not far from Hou Hai Lake. It is a very popular place and very crowded. I think it is...More

If you're into it, the gentrified hipster part is full of little shops and restaurants, but it was far too touristy for us. The residential area a bit closer to the Drum tower was full of real daily life and a pleasure to walk around...More

This is a Hutong, a series of small streets typical of Beijing. There are lots of great stores and ice cream shops. Walk only street, very nice to walk in the afternoon.

The street is very clean and well maintained, and is in the middle of a nice hutong. Very cool shops, lots to eat as long as you like ice cream or churros, but very touristic. If you know there's a Starbucks then you know enough...More

Weird to see so many tourists complaining about how touristy this area is: the irony delights me every time! They must just be lazy as off the main streets, which are admittedly rammed with people and standard shops, the narrower hutongs and alleys are all...More

The best subway access is the Nanluoguxiang Station at the southern exit from the Hutong. Nanluoguxiang is on both line 6 and line 8 (the start of line 8).

Hi Maggie. Welcome to Beijing! It depends on how many places they will take you to and how long is the trip. Is it a one-day long trip? How many Hutongs does it include? Is lunch included? The benefit of taking a Hutong trip... More
