Enjoy the local food, culture and relax here

Water town's Gangnam Style life attract a lot of tourists coming from all around the world. People can relax here to get rid of the modern city's heavy pressure and all the concrete. We have small boats here to enjoy the river water, small romantic houses on both sides of the river and have a very similar feeling of Venice. This water town has another nickname, it's called Chinese Venice.

There are many interesting stories coming from here, one of it is about a rich person, very smart who buried a Cornucopia here. He wished his hometown and all his friends and people living here could become rich and happy. From then on, this Cornucopia story becomes very famous and everyone wants to live and do business here. Even today, people still believe that the Cornucopia is protecting them.
We will walk around the gravel and see all the shops cross the street, we can enjoy the food here, the local style arts and crafts, everything very traditional and pretty.

Let's have a wonderful time in water town.
