People say that the real culture of Beijing is the culture of the Hutong and Courtyards. How true that is. They attract more tourists from home and abroad than the high-rise buildings and large mansions during Tour to China. Hutong is a Mongolian word meaning water well. At nine meters (about 30 feet) wide, it is the name given to a lane or small street that originated during the Yuan Dynasty (1271–1368). Now they have become representatives of local culture, thus it is the first choice for people who would like to learn about the local history and culture.
Beijing hutongs are now endangered. Many hutongs are very dilapidated, and the courtyards in them are badly in need of repair, and covered with rubbish along Beijing tours. In recent 30 years, as the modern city developed, many huge building have been built around the city, with the old and compact hutongs seemingly out of place. Therefore, hutongs and courtyards were torn down, and acres of old streets have disappeared. On average 50 Hutongs are disappearing annually. When the hutongs and courtyards are destroyed, the traditional hutong culture and Beijing characters are also destroyed.
For visitors looking for a fun way to experience Beijing's hutong, you should consider doing a motorcycle sidecar tour. Motorcycles can swiftly squeeze into little-seen areas of the city, not to mention race past Beijing's gridlocked traffic. The company does small tours with local guides and can cater to your needs during China vacations!
