Beijing Hutong

  1. Beijing's hutong (narrow alleyways) are the city's unofficial mascots. There are only a few pockets of these maze like neighborhoods left in the old part of the city and it's where one can find some truly authentic Chinese life being lived.

    Hi TKO

    I always look forward to seeing your images. Very Nicely Done !


  3. I would really like to visit there and learn that culture. Fascinating to me.
    Enjoy your shots of it for sure, so POST MORE!
  4. A very nice one, Justin. I always like to photo the Hutong, but my last trip to Beijing was kind of rush and had no time to explore.
  5. Robert and Frank - thanks for the comments. The hutong of Beijing fascinate me.

    Phil - Next time you're here have a look around the "liu li chang" neighborhood. The hutongs there are probably the most authentic and un-tampered with. It's possible to get lost for hours there. And certainly very photogenic.

    Hi Justin,

    I have a Germany friend who did move from the US to Bejing a couple of months ago. We studied together in Charlotte, NC. He also shares the passion of photography. Would you like to exchange your email addresses with him?
