Go for a stroll along the section of the street that abuts the expansive canal, or simply bring along your camera to snap a few photos of the stout Drum Tower and colorfully painted building fronts.

  • People's Republic of China tradition preserved it can from the back alley like walking around to explore the Hutong was good. During the day, rather than looking at a little bit more atmosphere to the evening I go to.

  • I have always loved this place, all time favourite. Hmmmmm.... But now it's become way toooooooo commercial. Used to be a tucked away alley with many unique boutiques and cafes, and owners were often do chatty that you can easily spend an afternoon chatting about life Now it's inside-out tourist destination/street food galore! 😢
  • Good tourist spot, with many innovative products.
  • When you walk down the streets, you will see almost everywhere dotted with plants and ancient houses.
  • This is a tourist Mecca, very crowded, but a great buzz and plenty of places to eat / shop. Don't expect an 'authentic' Hutong experience but nevertheless a great place to visit.
  • Very touristic place, but also show the traditional view of Beijing
