  • We arrived at the village of fishermen (Fishing Village) by boat from Xinping, and were given 20 minutes to visit us and are more than enough because the village really isn't that great. It's basically half abandoned and very few people live there. We visited the home of an elder of the place, which had been visited by Bill Clinton, and we even climbed up on the roof at a cost of ¥5: the old man to make us rise showed a paper written by the same Bill Clinton who said from the roof there was a panorama to com o. actually visiting it is not at all amazing: o Bill thought the Lewinski, or, much more likely, wanted to make a nice gesture towards the elderly owner, who with this leaflet draws us a living and did make very well.

  • There are none of the typical village of fishermen. The main street of the village is more than a crowded shopping street. The houses have become the tourist shops. The sole interest of the village is that it can be one of the starting points for a ride on a boat on the river.
