The Hutong in snow is always a pretty sight representative of the "true Beijing". Hutongs in the Houhai area are relatively well preserved and those in the Nanluoguxiang area are the most typical ones. There are 8 Hutongs on the east and west sides of the Nanluoguxiang area similar to that of a centipede, so it is also called "the Centipede Street".
