For some people, the 30-40 minute taxi ride from the coast to the Meixi Stone Archways, together with the 65 Yuan entrance fee to see some memorial relics and a few Qing dynasty houses, may seem like a lot of money and effort to get there. However, there is a strong sense of the old world lost here and it is the only place in China that I didn't encounter other tourists. To the left of the archways are Chen Fang's former residences, including a small opera stage. These houses contain some historical items and photos from the era. Some interesting information concerning famous historical characters born in Meixi can also be found in the last building. Note that leaving the museum, you may have trouble getting a bus or taxi back, as it is far out of town.
