Xi Tang Attractions : Temples, People & Shopping

Xi Tang, one of the water-town daytrips away from Shanghai, has a lot of local attractions to complement the lovely water canals. I spent an entire day with an open ticket to all the local sightseeing attractions.

 

The official Xitang website has a good summary of all the places, so I’ll just share with you some of the photos I captures roaming the narrow streets of the water town.

There are also a few small local museums, like the museum of Chinese buttons showing some of the local produce.

 

Once you toured around and you’re feeling tired, you can sit down for a brew of the local Xitang beer…
