Basic and unutilised potential

The house is only opened on ground floor with very basic display. When compared to Li's house, we found the Wang's house sorely lacking. The location and setting has much higher potential if only more furniture and exhibit was included to actually show how people lived. Also minimal signs in English as common for China.

Wang Yuan was the Commander-in-Chief of the imperial army in the Song Dynasty. After the so-called Mingshou Mutiny, Wang fled to Hangzhou, where many of his descendants still live today.

One such moved to Xitang and build this historic house and garden in what is now Xitang Old Town. It is typical of the upper-class residences of the Ming and Qing Dynasties, artfully blending the man made structures with the natural rocks, streams and gardens surrounding it.

Wang's House is not to be confused with Wang Refined Hostel, which is located nearby.

Wang's House is on the official list of sites in Xitang Old Town and is admission is included in the cost of your 300 Yuan-a-day entry ticket to the old town.
