Beijing's Hutongs, China

Take a tricycle tour of Beijing’s unique and famous Hutongs, a maze of old narrow back streets found in the Changiao area of the Western District.

Surrounded by the beautiful Shichahai Lake, the Hutongs are home to ordinary Chinese citizens as well as ancient courthouses, historical relics and former residences of famous Chinese people.

The narrow streets provide a good insight into a quickly fading way of life, as the hutongs are being demolished right across China and very few now remain.

A visit to a local home can be arranged, where you will learn how to make dumplings with a guide translating.
