A Hutong is a simple alleyway, usually running East-West, onto which more architecturally interesting buildings open. All the Hutong's streets crisscross with each other, dotted with a Kindergarten, a Bell Tower, a Drum Tower, a Tea House, and a lake, House of Gong Infant and local people's houses scattered among them.

A leisurely way of touring Shichahai Hutong is by pedicab (Rickshaw) and a good place to start is the western edge of Shicha Lake, before crossing the Yinding (Silver Ingot) Bridge to the Drum Tower. On climbing the tower a panorama of local hutong comes to view. Continue to the Rear Lake area for a look at the ancient South and North Official House hutong, the Greater and Lesser Gold Lion hutong, and the Front and Rear Well hutong. Last stop is Prince Gong's Mansion and huge garden on Liuyin Street, for a glimpse at the imperial opulence that once was.
