A hutong is an ancient city alley or lane typical for Beijing, where hutongs run into the several thousands. Surrounding the Forbidden City, many were built during the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties.
This 700-year old neighbourhood of Old Beijing with labyrinth-like narrow streets seems to be caught in a time warp. See it through the eyes of your own personal rickshaw driver and make several stops along the river, at the vegetable market, and even visit a local house to get a feel of Chinese everyday life. This tour also includes a visit to the magnificent gardens at Prince Gong´s Mansion, Beijing´s largest and the best preserved royal mansion of Qing Dynasty.
