The History of Hutong Walking Tour


What is all the fuzz about?

Follow Beijing Postcards into the curved Hutong alleyways around Dashilar Neighbourhood. Listen to stories of opium dens and brothels of old day. Gain a profound understanding of old Beijing during a fun and interesting afternoon.

Along the way we will discover lanes so narrow that not even the tricycle rickshaws will be able to reach us. Dashilar is a place that traditionally was the “melting pot” of Beijing society, and also the center of development as new modern storefronts, newspaper houses, brothels and movie theaters sprung up and became important vehicles of change.

What will happen to this area in the future? Is preservation a real option or will this area, in the very heart of Beijing, have to cave in to developers.
