We can't go inside the drum tower, but the area around it is full of vendors and old buildings that one can expect to find in an old Chinese town.

The gate and the old town are definitely worth a visit, and certainly give you a view into historical China. There a lots of vendors, including a plethora of street cooking. This is a good stroll.
