This town is not very big as compared to Zhou zhuang water town, but is still worth visiting. Take a stroll down the shophouses and look at many of the local stuff on sale.

Lots to do and see. Fairly cheap to enter. Magnificent views with little markets to buy food and items.

Literally nothing to see here, the town gave me a bit desperate feelings. There're a few karaoke and some local business with no customers, the nice thing about the place is the lake and the old architectures which have been preserved.

Nice to see the "old" China - very different to the tall high rises that appear everywhere else. Very nice to spend a few hours wandering around, people who live there still doing things the way things were done years ago. Plenty of little shops...More

There are probably few hundred ancient towns in China, and many of them are unknown, hidden and less developed., those seen in guidebooks are of course popular and thus crowded then more commercialized. Just visit one in your life time would be quite sufficient unless...More

This is a quaint little Water town dating back to 1552. It has many ancient stone bridges and 236 waterways. There are winding canals, cobblestone alleyways, and sampans being propelled along the water by the woman oarspersons. Some of the buildings/houses seemed to have changed...More
