Up and Trendy...


Nan Luo Gu Xiang is one of my favorite little lanes (胡同- Hu Tong) in Beijing. When we first arrived in Beijing this hutong wasn’t much different than the other ones, then a few months later reconstruction started and more and more shops and bars opened until the area became one of the trendiest hutong in Beijing.

A stroll through NanLuo

WuDaoYing hutong next to the Lama Temple is trying to reiterate the success of Nanluoguxiang.
Nanluo started with one café: The Pass by café. Wudaoying is better known for the Vineyard Café and is connected to another up and coming street: GuoZiJian (near the Confucius temple). Do I see a trend?

The Next big thing?
