Hutongs in Beijing

Hutongs aka alleys had formed the old Beijing city, but now most of them are demolished into wider roads and modern buildings, only a few of hutongs are left as protected areas to preserve the Chinese cultural history.

The pictures above were taken in Nanluogu alley, which has been kept as its original hutong look, but with lots of street food and boutiques owned by local Beijingers.
