Photo Report: A voyage through Beijing hutongs

Chana Star in Dongsi hutong

An endangered species, the real Beijing lives and breathes in hutongs where a warm sense of community and hospitality survives.

As you will see, the tiny streets have not discouraged hutong inhabitants from bringing their Cadillac SUV at their doorstep…
