A walk through the hutongs.

IMG_3361The best area’s to explore in Beijing are often found in the older parts of the city. They are referred to as the ‘hutongs’. As I walk their quiet, yet surprisingly lively streets, I feel as though I’ve stepped back in time. Everything moves slower and feels more intimate in the narrow alleyways. It is also easy to get lost in its maze-like layout but discovering a hidden cafe or restaurant makes it all worth while.
