I am happy that I visited the Hutong area. Also, I took toured an individual complex and learned a lot during the tour. The tour afforded me a look into the traditional living style in Beijing and how difficult life can be. Highly recommend!

A wonderful old hutong with loads of traditional elements and Chinese character. It also has a very informative Hutong Museum and The Red Wall Garden Hotel is a great place to have a meal in their open air Courtyard Bistro.

We were with a guide and walked around this area along the narrow streets and lane ways. It was lovely just to wander and take in the history. The tiny houses were fascinating with their old doors and roofs. It was a shame that our...More

We have done the Hutong tour on a rickshaw and it was very enjoyable, though I wouldn't say there is so much to see there. Nice to spend an hour or so

If you're close by try to have a walk on Shijia Hutong, it's a nice street with some of the traditional hutongs still there. There is a museum and a good lunch place (Courtyard Bistro) placed there.
