    Xitang Ancient Town
    Stop: 6 hours
    Note: The start and end times will vary depending on traffic and road conditions The guide will pick you up at 8:30 at your hotel lobby, and then will be transfer to Xitang water town. To call this lovely water-village an oriental Venice would be wildly over the mark, yet it shares similarities with its more famous Italian counterpart. Canals dissect twisting narrow lanes and pathways, rendering the community traffic-free and boat friendly. Worn stone steps lead down to the waters and hopelessly pretty bridges span them. But Xitang is on an altogether smaller, happily domestic scale, and no matter how hard it tries, tourism is mercifully still in its infancy. In Xitang fishing junks are still in everyday use - easily identified because they're covered in cormorants - and jostle alongside the myriad tourist boats. They're the source of local delicacies, including Fenhu Lake crabs, shrimps, eels, clams and turtles. Legs of pork hung in an open shed, were ready to be steamed on lotus leaves and served up with trotter sauce. Even though Xitang is small, it's something of a centre for the arts. In summer, traditional folk operas, concerts and a local cinema play by the waterside in the open-air. And all year-round, young artists from the cities come to paint the alleyways and canals. At the end of the day, your guide drops you off at your hotel.
