The hutongs are near the Lama Temple, and are in stark contrast to the sky scrapers that pollute the sky in the Central Business District. This area offers a taste of Beijing’s history as the streets are lined with stores and houses, the construction of which has remained unchanged for over a half-century. The place is charming, has great food, tons of foreigners and angry locals who resent being the constant flood of foreigners. This area is a must see if you ever come.
