    Definitely worth to see

    We were there middle of March and it was not too crowded. The atmosphere is really nice, some people still live there. Can get a good impression how the Chinese lived in the past

    Excellent old village

    A cool place to walk around, tickets cost 70 RMB before 5pm. Buildings from Ming & Qing dynasty. The tofu is unique, as is celebrated with a festival every Spring.
