Wudaoying Hutong is an old lane stretching from Yonghegong Lama Temple Street in the east to Andingmen Inner Street in the west. Meanwhile, it connects with Jianchang Hutong in the south. Wudaoying Hutong, which is 632 meters long and 6 meters wide, has 69 courtyards, making itself the first choice for visitors to have a rest and seek serenity after visiting the Yonghegong Lama Temple. At first glance, it looks like Nanluogu Alley, and after walking around, you'll feel the difference between the two. Wudaoying tends to be more serene and artful.

Wudaoying was settled in Chongjiaofang and was formerly known as Wude Weiying. It was there since Zhu Di, Emperor Taizu of the Ming Dynasty, built the capital in ancient Beijing. It is said to be the barracks station of the Ming Dynasty defending the city. It was renamed "Wudaoying" in the Qing Dynasty, and then was renamed "Wudaoying Hutong" in 1965 when the official rectification was implemented.

Wudaoying Hutong has now been positioned as a lane featuring tourism, leisure and cultural experience. Due to the well-maintained appearance and pleasant environmental conditions, many people choose to start business here. There are many cultural stores, including diverse creative shops, tranquil cafes, exquisite handicraft workshops, cat-themed handmade porcelain shops, and elegant vegetarian restaurants, which can be seen everywhere in this place.

The shop owners on both sides have planted abundant characteristic green plants, which make a pleasant shade in summer while boasting reddish leaves in autumn. Thus Hutong is covered with picturesque views throughout the year. The delicate things like customs and culture need to be appreciated by people who are calm.

Roaming on the road, you can see people chatting in stores, or young girls making handicrafts in the workshop. With beautiful bicycles and old houses carpeted with vines, it is really a good place for people to rest and chat. Visitors can also find hostels here.
