Not bad

Like a lot of "ancient" towns in China. Small alleyways with lots of tourist shops and street snacks. Nice for a walk around and getting lost in the small lanes.

This is the place to be for the sights sounds, tastes and smells of old china, not a large area, but the people are friendly even to white devils like myself

The Ancient Town was an thriving marketplace, a hive of activity with lots of interesting sites, smells and things to purchase. Highly recommended.

Walked through area and stopped for lunch on Wendy Wu China tour. Really interesting to see how China was before they built all the tower blocks. Tried the tofu beating and locals were extremely friendly We westerners were the "freak show"

This is worth visiting. It does give you a flavour of ' old China' before the cultural revolution. They now live in high rise flats , so the contrast is amazing.. There are crowds and crowds of people, so be prepared. If you are fair haired and have blues eyes, expect stares and requests to have your photograph taken.

This place is a great place to visit, I was amazed when I first toured it. When I was there they were still updating and renovating certain parts of it. I think this is the Qing Dynasty era.

Thank 51charles
