Disney"hutong"land.

Hutongs were torn down

Residents lived there for decades have moved out

Authentic Beijing flavor has gone

 

okay, what's left?

ruins?

 

oh, not that bad, it's replaced by the so-called Hutong, so-called "cultural street", with tons of international brands which can be found any where in the world, the architectural style actually reminds me of "Main Street" in Disneyland!

 

One of the many victims of globalization.

 

Qianmen, Beijing, China
