Nice old and charming city without cars and narrow streets. During the daytime many Chinese tourists groups are walking around but it is less than in Hongcun. Besides tourist you will see many art students painting pictures everywhere. During night it is much more silent.
Rice Wine Brewery. Close to the entrance of the city (just 50 meters after entering the small streets) there is a rice wine brewery. There you can try different kinds of wine for free plus having a glass at the bar. edit
Xidi Travel Lodge. checkout: noon. Nice clean hotel directly at the entrance of the city. The breakfast is served in an old building. If you prefer western breakfast you can ask at the reception for it (surcharge 20 RMB per Person).ca. 500 RMB. edit
