Xitang, a town of ancient residences, is renowned for many bridges, lanes and covered corridors. Visitors may find shelter from the sun and rain under the many extended corridors with hanging red lanterns, and discover a sense of history winding through the cracks along the quiet lengths of Shipi Lane and Ji Family Lane. The town has numerous Ming and Qing dynasty buildings. You can still sense a profound scholarly air in Zunwen and Zuijing halls, and observe in West Garden a few arcaded houses, appearing as if suspended in the sky. In a small boat you can glide forward through drizzle and willows, looking for the Divine Hall along the Incense-Burning Waterway while appreciating stone bridges and flowing waters – scenery typical of southeast China. At dusk on Yongning Bridge, you may capture another aspect of Xitang’s beauty and tranquility by enjoying the moonrise, viewing lanterns and listening to the soft paddle-strokes through the water; while at dawn, breathe in strong whiffs of awakening life from wafting chimney smoke or early morning haze, hanging over the river channels, old houses and streets, as well as stone bridges, all comprising elements of a traditional Chinese painting.
