Ruin Historic Site
At Former residence of Xueyan Hu, get a glimpse of the wealth and splendor of the richest merchant of the Qing dynasty. The only merchant who was awarded with a read-topped hat--usually reserved for the court officials--built the residence in 19th century. Go down a secluded alley that leads to the front gate, then notice the shoe-shaped ingot pattern on the floor--a symbol of good fortune. Walk around the labyrinth of open-air corridors, oriental gardens, rocky areas, pavilions, and towers. See the hall, which Hu built to watch opera. Notice the Western-style chandeliers hanging in the main hall, where the merchant used to entertain foreign guests.
