Wonderful experience walking through this Ancient Town, with many local merchandises, silk works, and there is canal that runs along the whole town. It was clean and not many tourists yet when we were there.

After spending time in some of China's biggest and busiest cities; Beijing and Shanghai, it was a relief to find Luzhi, one of the old water towns. There were a few tourists but it was fairly quiet and easy to explore the little streets that...More
