Venue Name
The Hutong
1 Jiudaowan Zhongxiang Beixinqiao, Dongcheng District. Beijing

At first glance, Beijing’s bustling Central Business District seems like an odd place to search for Old Peking…but it’s there if you know where to look. An observatory built for looking to the heavens. An altar to the sun. A temple depicting the different fates which await sinners in the afterlife. This walk will explore the old among the new, as we travel through modern Beijing in a quest to uncover the past. Along the way, we’ll also discuss the development of this area from extramural suburbs to the hub of new Beijing.

Duration: About three hours

300 RMB per person (260 RMB for members of The Hutong) including all admission tickets, guide fees, and tips.
