A TOUR OF THE 'HUTONG' (small avenue)

Nowadays, there are organized tours of Beijing hutongs for foreign tourists.

You can make reservation at the Beijing Hutong Culture Development Company, or buy at your own hotel.

You will be taken by pedicab (a tricycle cab),which was very common to the old days to see the Bell and Drum Towers, one or two former palaces of the imperial princes, some interesting hutongs and even to pay a visit to an ordinary Beijing family in the compound houses.

If you are there at a meat time, you may be invited to a family 'banquet' with local dishes.
