Tour Description

Hutong in the north of Qianmen are expanse and uniform but hutongs in its south are narrow and irregular. During Qing Dynasty (1636-1911), the government restricted the immigrants to enter the city, so those immigrants centralized in Qianmen and Chongwenmen area. After a long time, the shopping centers and leisure centers are formed in the area from which the unique Hutong culture gradually started.

It has history of more than 570 years. It was called Zhengyangmen Street during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and finally got the present name in 1965. During the Qing Dynasty, there were many specialized outlets on either side of it, such as a meat market, cloth market and jewelry market. And there were also many craftsman workshops, warehouses and theatres in the Hutongs nearby.
