We loved the atmosphere and vibe in the Hutong in this area, especially along Yandai Xie Street. It has loads of quirky souvenir and craft shops, a shoppers paradise actually. There are lots of cafes and bars too and the architecture seemed really authentic and...More

This street is also very charming with (more) little shops. I think the products they sell here are a little bit cheaper than in the other touristic parts. The street leads to a river and lake which makes it a very nice walk.

This street is also known as Tobacco Pipe Street and is one of the oldest streets in Beijing. Part of the hutongs, it is a nice area to explore with its quaint and quirky shops, bars and restaurants.

It was a part of the Hutong Tour that was included in my itinerary. I wished to take more time to look around, but had to rush through with others.

This brilliant old market area was very difficult to find with most web sites being poor about how to find it, and confusing everyone by using the term Hutong to mean market. You get here by taking Subway line 8, stop Shichahai; head north and...More
