Ancient feel is everywhere. Love museums, and street magicians, and famous Zhoucun Cookies with sesame seeds using ancient recipes. In the evenings I love to look and/or participate in fitness exercises with locals organised across the street near city square.

If you in the area, this is a nice visit for a few hours. There are a few interesting shops and some old restored architecture but only a few local places to eat. I'll need to go back again as I'm sure I missed something...More

Entrance to the Ancient City is free but a ticket (buy at the entrance) is required to visit the old houses and factories. Lots of little shops selling the usual tourist tat.
