Ceilinged Corridors are also called the rain corridors. Many ancient towns south of the Yangtze River have them. It looks like a street with wooden pillars and tile roofs. The rain corridor in Xitang is very distinctive because if you walk along the river in the old town, there will always be a shelter for you. Especially on rainy days, walking under the porch and listening to the patter of rain and the mysterious scenery outside the corridor. There is a strong artistic conception, so the rain corridor of Xitang has the reputation of "ceilinged corridor". The total length of the rain corridors in Xitang is nearly a thousand meters. Most of them are built on the riverside. Walking among the corridors, you can visit the various shops along the street. Sometimes there are sculling boats slowly shuttling tourists.

This ancient town has a history of more than 900 years old with many houses built in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Known as Yao City or Zhenfang lane in ancient times, the town was once a part of the Kingdom of Wu, playing an important role in the distribution of silk, ceramics, art pieces, and food. With lakes on the four sides, the beauty of Zhouzhuang has to be discovered through its water lanes and stone bridges. Taking a boat ride would be an interesting option to tour around the town.
