Walk through Beijing’s historic hutongs

Uncover a world hidden from view on an Asian Trails’ guided walk through Beijing’s hutongs. These alleyways are unique to the capital and have long been deep-rooted in the city’s cultural fabric.

Our excursion provides an insight into the past, present and future of these small lanes, with a colourful expose of former residents such as poets, spies, mistresses and some shady individuals. This history provides a wealth of intriguing and amusing tales exclusive to this warren of narrow thoroughfares that connect homes within Beijing’s oldest neighbourhoods. Beguiling characters will be brought to life by our guide’s narration during a half-day exploration.

Plenty of rest breaks are included, with the opportunity to enjoy authentic local cuisine and refreshing drinks in the myriad of cool cafes and restaurants that dot the local landscape.
