Hutongs are everywhere, especially within road road two. This is where people live. Depending on where you visit, look for one nearby and walk randomly.

I meant the famous/featured Hutongs like the Yan Dai Xie Jie, Naluoguxiang, etc.

My point is, it does not matter which one, all pretty similar. Just go in one when you are close, whichever it is.

The famous/featured ones, as you put it, are commercial developments rather than residential areas. You can walk between the two you mention in about five minutes.

You can choose Shichahai where you can see best-preserved traditional buildings and courtyards.

Most of the articles online does not show how to get to Nanluguoxiang, how do I get there from Wangfujing? Should I just get a taxi?
