104 quaint bridges, 122 old-fashioned lanes, and 1000-meter covered corridors are what impress every visitor to Xitang. Gradually formed since the 8th century, Xitang has a longer history than its neighboring water towns. This village is crisscrossed by nine rivers and connected by 104 ancient bridges. Every house resides along river banks. Among houses are winding lanes of stone slabs. Exquisite bridges provide convenient access within this village and tell stories of their times.  Xitang rains a lot and intelligent local people built cover over streets, providing shelters from rain and also shading sunshine in clear days.  Compared with more famous towns like Zhouzhuang and Wuzhen, Xitang is less-tourist and hence this village keeps a tranquil ambience and scenic beauty. If you are still hesitating, you may refer to the action movie Mission Impossible III which was shot in Xitang.
