Living history in Xitang

History & Culture

The ancient town of Xitang could be considered Jiashan’s flagship for tourism. The water town popular with travelers was built around 1,300 years ago during the Tang and Song dynasties and is well-known throughout southern China. On about 250,000 square meters, the well-preserved buildings from the Ming and Qing dynasties can still be admired today.

Have you ever heard of the “misty rain corridors” in Xitang? If you haven’t, you should visit the historic town early in the morning when the wafts of mist drift from the canals through the winding narrow streets. The sight is mesmerizing!

Worth a visit


Shanghai is the biggest and richest city in China. Visiting Shanghai, you should not miss out on the famous “The Bund”, the waterfront promenade where the Huangpu River divides the city in two parts. On one side of the river towers the futuristic skyline of the Pudong district with its 632 meters high Shanghai Tower, the World-Financial Tower, as well as the Jin Mao Tower and the Oriental Pearl Tower with its characteristic pink spheres. On the other side, the cityscape is characterized by colonial architecture and the downtown.
