Beijing Hutong Breakfast Food Tour
A stroll through Beijing’s Hutongs are recommended to every visitor to the capital, but locals know that “there are as many hutongs as there are hairs on an ox” around the city. The best way to get to know the most scenic twisting backstreets that locals call home is by eating your way through them, especially at the pop-up breakfast stalls that disappear after the morning rush hour. On this tour, you’ll meet your bilingual guide and small group at a convenient location, then head out to try traditional morning dishes side-by-side with the locals who love them.

Stop At: Temple of Confucius and Guozijian Museum, No.13 Guozijian Street, Beijing China
After we cross from Lama Temple, we'll see large Chinese gate not unlike those you find in Chinatowns around the world. We will follow the leafy hutong and pass both the Temple of Confucius and the Imperial Academy. This street was particularly important in China’s history not only because it was one of the main centers of Confucian thought (at a time when Confucian philosophy was China’s dominant ideology), but also because of the Imperial Academy next door. Any person who aspired to attain a government position anywhere in China was required to pass the Imperial Examination, which was held in the Imperial Academy.

When you’re at the top of the Drum Tower, you will be able to look south and see the temple at the top of Jingshan Park.
