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.

Crowded. Dusty. Same chain stores have multiple branches on the same street so food varieties are limited. Food tasted no better than other places if not worse. Choose other places for better experience.

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit Hutongs near the Drum and Bell Towers. We were treated to a cycle rickshaw pedal power by humans and even had a blanket for warmth. The name Hutong arises from the Mongolian and means a...More

Although this area is very touristy, it is still worth a visit as you can get lost in the sights, sounds and aroma of the surroundings. It is a rather commercially focused area where you can find a Starbucks (I saw one at least) and...More

During a short business trip to Beijing I had the opportunity to walk the city a bit. Although considered too commercial this neighbourhood is totally worth a visit. The atmosphere here is simply amazing and different from surrounding shopping areas despite it's mostly restaurants and...More

The main strip is more like a mall rather than a traditional Hutong. It’s lined mostly with food chains and tourist shops, with only a handful of more unique boutiques (eg. x-creativity soul art shop) that are worth entering. I’m not even sure if those...More

There are many hutongs branching off from the main nanluoguxiang and if you enjoy exploring to see how the locals live you wont be disappointed. The main street is filled with shops, restaurants, cafes, snack bars but it is the hutongs that are the main...More

On our week long visit to Beijing we visited "The Hutongs" probably 5 times. While it was very touristy there are so many kidden gems in the alleyways and you can feel so much history there. It was one of the coolest things we did...More

This is perhaps the most famous Hutong area in Beijing. One can have a presentiment of a typical residential area of last hundreds of years, which is almost totally disappeared in last decades. There are a lot of big courtyards of known historical personalities in...More

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.

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
