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.

Interesting traditional Beijing Huton

Although this place is a little bit over commercialized, but still worth a visit. You can find many interesting and unique stores over there.

There is no need for a rickshaw there. Walking will be just fine. You can get there by subway Nanluoguxiang (6, 8), and leave from Shichahai (8) when you've walked all the way. The food there is not very expensive and you can try some specialities of 老北京 there. I went there with friends, we loved it.

Normally I love a nice stroll through Nanluoguxiang but travelers should be aware that as of November 2016 it is completely under construction. You can visit some of the side hutongs that branch off from Nanluoguxiang but the main street itself is unpassable and most of the shops are closed for the moment. Looks like they are repairing the paving... More

This is one of the old Hutongs of Beijing, very traditional, always busy and alive! Great atmosphere, worth of a visit if you would like to see some traditional shops, and enjoy some local delicacies!

The Main Street is S luguo alley lined with a variety of shops and restaurants. Some unique but also lots of repetition. It's packed with locals and tourists. I thought was very pleasant and a nice environment day or night. Worthwhile strolling left or right into the various Hutongs to explore old Beijing and find some less touristy spots. Definitely...

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
