At this point we realize that your must-visit list is getting pretty long, but hey– Beijing is a big, beautiful, ancient city. What did you expect? Anyway, Jiuwan Hutong is in Xuanwu, and it has the most twists and turns of any hutong in Beijing. Though Jiuwan is really just a normal hutong, packed with ordinary and longterm residents, and without many renowned cultural relics, it's worth your time for exactly that reason. For those looking for a glimpse of ordinary Beijing street life (or hutong life) as it has existed for years and years, look no further than Jiuwan.
