“Nice walk in this small alley”

Zhoucun Ancient City
Ranked #1 of 130 things to do in Zibo
Attraction details
Reviewed October 8, 2014 via mobile

Tourist street and it's packed daily with inland tourist. It's rare to find foreigners. Old pre war buildings and old history of various establishment can be found here. Worth the walk. Time spent. 1 half hours to finish walking. Took a taxi from zibo city to this place took me about 25 min at 35rmb. Forget about the zhoucun biscuit, it don't suit our taste.

It's a quaint little street and area of traditional buildings. Fun to explore for a while but nothing outstanding especially if you have spent much time travelling in China. Fun day out.

This old street is short but it does have some interesting to see. There is a famous biscuit factory along the street where you can buy the freshly made biscuit at the basement. The wafer thin biscuit is delicious.

I've been to the Zhoucun Ancient City several times now, because visit friends and family always seem to want to go. For those just visiting China for the first time it's not a bad quick stop, but in general once is enough.

It's been renovated in the old Chinese city style, but mixed in are too many out of place tourist shops. I don't think old Chinese cities had shops displaying the mask from the Scream movie series in them. They do have some relevant commodities such as pottery and Zhoucun sesame crackers, but heavily marked up.

If you pay money you can enter one of several exhibits located just off the main paths. In my opinion it's worth forking out the money, because that's where you'll be able to snap some photos and perhaps read a bit about the history. During the travel season or certain holidays the streets will also have random performances and events.

You can walk around for free or buy a ticket to get into some of the special buildings. Several chinese movies and TV show are shot here. You can spend a whole day just wondering around the streets and snacking
