been a few years since I lived in BJ and haven't been there in a couple of years, but I had seen the changes of Nan Luo Gu XIang. In about 2006-8 some friends and I used to regularly go to NLGX for drinks, as it was a cheap student bar area with very few shops, restaurants or tourists. It was quiet, and a cool place to hang out. Within 3 years that was ruined. It was still a very good place to bring my tourist friends, as they like the bohemian style feel of cafes and craft shops, but I wouldn't go there myself now. The worst thing was all the locals who have become rich, since these Hutongs are so valuable, driving their 4WDs (SUVs) down the narrow alley beeping their horn to make the tourists jump out of the way. There was barely enough room to stand aside.
The good news is there are still hundreds of other hutongs inside the 2nd ring road. I recommend a walk from Yong He Gong Temple to the drum and bell tower, which will cut through BeiLGX. It's a fantastic day out and you can find some great traditional sites mixed in with the modern luxuries.

I've never been to Beijing,maybe one day I'll visit it.  
Being honest, I prefer to travel in southeast countries rather than go to Beijing.
We love our home,though our feet can leave it,yet our hearts can't.
