Get in

By bus or taxi from Tunxi (taxi ¥150-180)


Nice old and charming city without cars and narrow streets. During the daytime many Chinese tourists groups are walking around but it is less than in Hongcun. Besides tourist you will see many art students painting pictures everywhere. During night is much more silent.


Try the small restaurants. Often you can walk into the kitchen and choose the ingredients of your dish.  Tip: ask for the price when you order to avoid surprises after ordering the bill.
