Itinerary Details

Depart your hotel at the planning time, take the public transportation to Hutong area

Walk around Old Beijing Hutong : Hutong is a Mongolian word meaning water well. At nine meters (about 30 feet) wide, it is the name given to a lane or small street that originated during the Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368). Now they have become representatives of local culture, thus it is the first choice for people who would like to learn about the local history and culture.

Smoking Pipe Oblique Street (Yandai Xiejie): tucked behind Houhai lake, this is one of the Beijing oldest hutong lanes. It got its name from the many tobacco pipe shops mushrooming with the arrival of the Manchu rulers. With a combination of residential buildings and traditional shopfronts displaying carved windows and selling an assortment of antiques, it’s a quaint and charmingly old-fashioned area

Drum Tower & Bell Tower : The bell and the drum were originally used as musical instruments in China. Afterward, however, they were used for telling time. You can see the drum beaten performance now. (the last performance is at 16:50pm)
