Hutongs, Beijing: 73 reviews and 164 photos

 
 

The traditional Beijing residential area is called a hutong.

There are hutongs still all over in Beining. The popular touristy hutongs are near Hou Hai where you can pay for a trishaw ride around the hutong neighborhood.

But you can just walk into any hutongs on your own safely and take as many photos as you wish - discretely of course as people are living there and would appreciate their privacy too.

Many hutongs are being levelled to make for new housing and offices and so visit them now.
