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.

  • Very long hutong shopping street. A lot of young people go here espesially in the evening until night. But not as crowded as shichahai.
  • One of the best hutong neighbourhood in Beijing. It's near a local art school. Lots of small restaurants and art stores with good services.
  • 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! 😢
  • When you walk down the streets, you will see almost everywhere dotted with plants and ancient houses.
  • Good tourist spot, with many innovative products.
