Xitang is flat and densely filled with rivers, and has a very quiet natural environment. Nine rivers converge in this town, dividing it into eight sections, with many bridges holding this water town together (in ancient times it was called the "Nine Dragon Old Pearl" or "Wind From Eight Sides").
Inside the town there are many well-preserved buildings constructed during the Ming and Qing dynasties, and the artistry and workmanship of these buildings has attracted experts in antique architecture both in China and other countries. From a bird's-eye view of the whole town, you would be able to see the canals as green ripples and every family living close to the water. The whole town is like a poem or a picture. In this town, people will feel like they are in an earthly paradise.
