     We suggest you start your visit from the west side of the scenic area, then continue east, getting lost in the streets of the city.

    You will be immediately immersed in the ancient charm of this beautiful water town. Stop and catch the beauty of ancient streets and alleys.

    Along  West Street you will find the Shipi Alley, the narrowest and most famous narrow street in the city.  

    Ancient stone bridges are another of Xitang's wonders. Crossing the Huanxiu Bridge you will enjoy an incredible view of the canal.  

    On the other side of the river, you will meet the true protagonist of the unique landscape of Xitang, the covered corridors.

    Walking through these sheltered ways, you will discover fantastic views on the waterways and all the typical products of the local artisanal and gastronomic tradition.  

    After wandering around and taking pictures, which will make this visit unforgettable, you can return to West Street to enjoy a well-deserved lunch break.

    Resume your  journey via West Street. You will find the button museum and the Western Garden a short distance away.

     It includes an elegant residence and an internal courtyard.

    The buildings and the old houses are extremely suggestive.

     Xitang is certainly among the water towns that mostly maintain an authentic appearance. In the southeastern part of the scenic area you can visit the Ni Residence. After visiting many houses of great value, in this place you can get in touch with the life of ordinary people of the past.
