“A good place for weekend trip”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We drove there at the night of July 20. It was the typical evening of summer, but for the people who spend 7/24 in the big city, here is the place we can see a full view of stars only by raising our heads. They are so close to us. At that moment, I just wanted to lie down and stare at the stary sky, enjoying the tranquility~
Being far away from the noise and material life of big city, it's the place you can roam and have the snapshot of every special moment you get. The people there are nice and friendly. It's not like other ancient cities where you can see a lot of visitors walking on the road, feeling more like seeing people but not the scenery. Every house there is the inn you may want to stay, but you make the choice by yourself.
The ticket is 20 yuan (RMB) / person. There are four gates in four directions of the town and visitors need to get to the town by boat (1 yuan/ person). On the main street, there are laterns in Chinese Zodiac. There's an ancient academic shool in the town, but it's for visiting now.
We had a very big breakfast: rice noodles (very good, fresh and smooth), zhongzi (with pork and minced beans), congee and chopped local pickled cabbage), fried buns (made by sticky rice, with the filling of red minced beans), local special tea ( tea made from hawthorn leaves, go with fried rice and deep fried tiny buns)~really a lot
