"interesting"
Very interesting experience, a unique view to know Beijing, this city has a history of more than 5000years and all the thing I saw in these small alleys were so different from the business center now. they should be better preserved.

Overall Satisfaction:
"Hutong"
I spent an interesting morning in the Hutong area, these small and short alleys were quite noisy but lively, local people wash there, play cards together and even cook, its so good to see these true and lively things instead of a modern big city.
