Hútòng Walking

Jump to last reply

Some years ago I offered notes on three walks around Beijing's back alleys, and over a thousand people requested them. Fodor's eventually asked either that they be posted here in full, or that I mount them somewhere else and offer a link. I didn't believe either method to be suitable at the time. But now the walks have been re-walked, expanded, and updated, and I've posted them to Medium--a site for hosting text.

Here's the page, with links to an introductory essay on hútòng life and history, and now details of five historic walks. I hope new readers find them as useful and those in the past did.
