Tourism spot. Modern architecture has been built in the so called ancient town and lots of shops. It's been commercialized but those looking for some local delicacies can find it interesting.

I went with a group to the town. It was a cute town, but it is geared for tourists since it is very commercial. Tourists can take pictures with people dressed in costumes, too. The shop owners will bargain with you. I don't recall eating...More

An ancient Chinese town that has undergone significant development over the past five years. Highlights include hiking the wall and trying the local snacks such as chili pepper dry fried in chicken oil or tofu balls with vinegar.

Wow. What a wonderful Chinese Ancient Town. The whole town is beautiful. It's fantastically restored. Amazing! Would give it 5 stars but I am keeping one for 3 reasons: - No Taxis available anywhere. A tourist place like this should have an official taxi rank...More
