Upon arrival, you will visit Xitang. Xitang is 128 kilometers away from Hangzhou and 80 kilometers away from Shanghai. But it has a very different pace of life from those big cities. The residents of Xitang don't seem to care about the outside world, because this is paradise, an isolated world. The quiet water, handsome bridges, and the reflections in the early morning and the rosy sunset, fishing boats and the glistening lights in the evening, form an amazing picture full of a sense of poetry which can only be seen in the south lower reaches of the Yangtze River.
Entering Xitang, the first thing in front of you is the typical scenery of the water town. The bridges, alleys, corridors and almost every corner of Xitang are worth exploring.
The guide will take you through the Rain Curtain Corridor first, and then you will see the Songzilaifeng bridge, which used to be the scene of the famous American movie <Mission Impossible ?>.

After lunch, pay a visit to the China Button Museum. There are six exhibition areas in the museum, and so far, it is still showing tourists the oldest button technology. There is a master in the museum to interpret the shell button production process on site. As one of the local characteristics, button has always had an inseparable relationship with the economic development of Xitang ancient town.
Then, walk to the Wood Carving Museum, The museum displays hundreds of woodcarving works in Ming and Qing Dynasties. It shows the unique style of Jiangnan Woodcarving: soft, delicate, fresh and beautiful.
In addition to the must-see attractions, Xitang also has some unknown corners, such as the Ginkgo tree beside the Lu Grave with a history of 600 years, the Shipi Alley and Ni's house. Of course, photography is an essential part here.
