  • Different than the village of Xidi, but interesting, far too many people, tourist buses abound. If possible walk the cross streets, no tourists. Risk, however, that this will turn into an "amusement park" in some time

  • Enjoy the bonus of Hongcun tickets and abandon tourists riding a battery car full of streets and streets honking the horns! Just a minute... No, no one's coming, you can't block it at all... And don't bother tourists with the horn, isn't it enough?
