The traditional atmosphere of Beijing.

Hutongs are a kind of small street hosting typical Chinese houses with courtyard. In Beijing there are hutong districts around the Forbidden City area and they are probably the best places to feel the real Beijing atmosphere. My photos were mainly taken in the Banchang hutong.




I’ve visited Beijing staying in a hutong district during my trip around the world. Here below you can find the article in which I say something about my experience.
