During the Ming Dynasty, the Baishun Hutong was well known for having a lot of cypress leaves. The Qing Dynasty, in order to associate the Hutong with a more auspicious meaning, changed it’s name to Baishun.\n\n\nThe Baishun Hutong located in the southwest of the Da Shi lanr with 245 meters long and 5.7meters wide.\n\nIt is the most famous one of the eight historic hutongs and has a very complex history. Some of the eight hutongs have been traded several times, but even the old residents in the vicinity don’t really know the details. Its one of those old tales that stays at the coffee table as you sip your latte with friends."},{"type":"link","content":"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRK-repYvqU"}]},{"address":"Qianmen Street","location":{"longitude":116.39825000000002,"latitude":39.89356001327494,"longitudeDelta":0.14321712068773834,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421},"media":[{"type":"text","content":"# Qianmen Street"},{"version":1,"metadata":{"height":500,"width":800},"type":"img","content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FzZY9tP43yVVcpDBDYwYz%2FQianmen-Street-in-Beijing-07.jpg?alt=media&token=cef04968-fee7-41f0-a33f-b01ebad8693b"},{"content":"A great starting point for exploring the most beautiful Beijing hutongs is Qianmen. Just a stone’s throw away from Tian’anmen and the Forbidden City, the area near Qianmen includes several hutongs of historical significance. The avenue proceeding south from the Qianmen Gate is known as “Qianmen Street”, and has been a commercial center for several centuries, although it now mainly caters to tourists from other parts of China. Many renowned stores and restaurants started out here, including the most famous Peking duck restaurant, Quanjude (全聚德). Qianmen Street is also considered the origin of Beijing snack foods.","type":"text"},{"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FzZY9tP43yVVcpDBDYwYz%2Ft%E1%BA%A3i%20xu%E1%BB%91ng.mp4?alt=media&token=1f8b4ecb-644a-4e91-b199-fcf495abbf3d","type":"video","metadata":{"height":720,"width":540}}]},{"media":[{"type":"text","content":"# Guanshuyuan Hutong "},{"content":"This lovely hutong is located on the east of the Confucious Temple.

The street is 669 meters (2,195 feet) long and 11 meters (36 feet) wide. Guozijian Street is also the last remaining hutong with traditional arches. That’s why this part of Beijing is renowned for its traditional architecture, the authentic Beijing native style. Be sure to explore the Temple of Confucius when in Guozjian Street. This hutong is also on my Beijing layover itinerary and totally doable if you’re only in Beijing for a short time.\n\nTip: Join a Hutong Food Tour with UnTour Beijing to try all the delicious snacks the locals eat!\n\nHow to get there: Take Subway Line 2 or Line 5, get off at Yonghe Temple (Yonghe Gong) Station.
