Qibao means seven treasures in Chinese. Local legend

said that there were seven treasures in the town, which are a pair of

 jade chopsticks, gold script lotus sutra, a thousand-year-old catalpa tree,

 a gold cockerel,  a jade axe, an iron Buddha and a bronze bell made in Ming Dynasty. But only the

scripture and the bell survived to today. But what most famed today in Qibao are its appetizing snacks. Strong along quaint streets, few tourists can resist the snacks.  Famous snacks here are:
Hebao DouFu Gan (dried bean curd wrapped in lotus leaves), Qi Bao Gao (polished glutinous rice in different flavors), Xun Lahaimo (smoked toads), Tanghulu (sugar coated haws on sticks), Kao Hongshu (roasted sweet potatoes), and other  various of snacks.  Taste yummy snacks and meanwhile please your eye with the water town views in Qibao.
