travel in Xitang

Xitang - the town that is beautiul out of the world

I have always been interested in the natural and historical beauty in China, for it is so different from that of western world. I especially love the acient towns that are filled with the typical beauty of this ancient vast land.
This summer vacation I went to Xitang in Zhejiang Province of China.
Xitang is level,densely distributed with rivers and has a very quiet natural environment.9 rivers converge in this town,dividing it into 8 sections,but many bridges link this water town together(anciently called as “nine dragon old pearl”and“wind from 8 sides”).Inside the town,there are many well-preserved architectural groups constructed during the Ming and Qing dynasties,which boast a higher artistry and study value,thus being highlighted by the experts at home and abroad studying antique buildings.
The secenery is wonderful. On my way of travel, I made friends with the local people. They are nice and friendly. I have been learning Chinese for some time in an online school. The language is as beautiful as its scenery. You will find it interesting to understand the local culture and language while travelling. If you are also interested in learning Mandarin, you can try it:
