Spent an afternoon in the ancient village of Xidi - it is about 15Km from Hongcun, where we were staying. Xidi is about 800-900 years old and I suppose the architecture has not changed much in that time and its heritage is preserved by UNESCO....More

We booked a taxi from Tangku (300 yuan) and spent half a day, including lunch, in this beautiful village. It was a sunny day in April and the sights were enchanting. An entrance fee of 140 yuan is charged, no further charges apply to visit...More
