  • This is a typical Chinese tourist attraction, and it's a pleasure to be here. I came late, and it was five o ' clock in the afternoon, and the entry scene was already closed to the House of Gross Xun and the Paraquat book. But here is a straight lane, on one side of which there is a waterway but the boat is also very special, beautiful scenery. The street has a number of snack shops, hand shop, you can try the fun of stinky tofu, hand letter can buy flowers 彫 wine/Yellow wine, price is not expensive; there is a rabbit for the topic, selling foreign tea in tea shop, but this price is very expensive.
