Your hutong tour begins with pickup at your Beijing hotel (within the 3rd ring road) at 4 p.m. With your dedicated guide, travel to the Shijia Hutong, where you will stroll around and learn about its reputation for education and home to many famous people. Visit the Shijia Hutong Museum, the first establishment dedicated to Hutong history. Visit the eight halls in the museum to learn about this distinctive and historic form of architecture, which is fast disappearing from this modernizing city.
Next, walk through the remainder of the Shijiahutong and the Lishi hutong, along with a produce market. Get a sense of everyday life in a Hutong as your guide gives you in-depth knowledge on Hutong culture.
End up at one of the city's most famous Mongolian hot pot restaurants for dinner and a taste of Bai jiu, a popular Chinese liquor. Following dinner, your guide will help you find a way back to your accommodations.
