3.9/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web
Admire a preserved section of traditional architecture dating back to the Yuan Dynasty at Nanluoguxiang, one of the city's most historic areas. Explore this 0.8 km (0.5 mi) long stretch to browse an array of shops, street vendors, and restaurants, and observe a number of hutong, traditional homes that feature walled courtyards opening out onto the street. 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. Plan to see Nanluoguxiang and other attractions that appeal to you using our Beijing trip builder.

  • 書上介紹是個值得到訪的景點~但是當我們抵達時看到的全都是滿滿的人,老胡同巷都變成商業化了,毫無老巷的美感!很失望~ 
  • 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! 😢
  • 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.
  • Delicious food here, suitable for friends and couples.
