What people are saying:

Very good, buys a ticket for 44 yuan, and the ticket is 60 at the door. The discount is very large, the scenic spot is good, the typical Jiangnan dwellings, I like my recommendation, the bridge is flowing water, the spring water is as green as blue. Can not remember the Jiangnan, everyone comes to play, a beautiful mood in a day

    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.
