Wish to feel the essence of the ancient Beijing? Then take a walk in its old, narrow streets or hutongs. One who visits these quarters for the first time may probably think it is a kind of a criminal area. But in reality people live a normal life here – small shops are open, there is a plenty of coffeehouses, people ride their bicycles and even drive cars. If you have not visited hutongs, you have not seen a real China!
