Xitang is a time-honored riverside town boasting a history of more than 1,000 years, whose well-preserved buildings from Ming Dynasty and Qing Dynasty are unmatched by any other resorts. Roaming in the town streets, you feel as if you were in a picturesque Chinese ink painting. The soaring white-washed walls on both sides of the rivers and the clear reflection of tile-roofed houses in the water, the willows swinging and dancing in the breeze all add splendor and vigor to the town.
In the serene riverside town, the pace of life is entirely subject to the gentle flow of the tinkling streams. The town is the synonym of water. The winding rivers with sprinkling ripples reflect the tranquil street scenes. The fall of night ignites thousands of lanterns along the riverbanks and the sunset glow as well, which then sets the town ablaze with light and illuminates the way home for the town residents.
