Besides Beijing's top tourist attractions like the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, the Summer Palace and the Lama Temple, the capital can cater to the whims of its visitors with various ways. Here is the travel editor's pick of Top 10 things to do in Beijing. They are as follows:

1. Visit a hutong complex

Beijing hutongs

The hutongs are one of the unique features of Beijing; they can most simply be defined as the old city alleyways. There are thousands of hutongs surrounding the Forbidden City, most of which came into being in the Yuan, Ming, and Qing dynasties. Beijing's hutong culture is a unique gem of Chinese culture. There is much to see, both from the historical and the personal perspective. The hutongs of Beijing reflect the lives of ordinary Beijing people – the opportunity to roam through Beijing's old, narrow hutong streets is understandably attracting more and more overseas visitors.
