as seen in the drum tower. Some good souvenirs to be had. Maybe some local snacks. Do not miss Zhongshan Park at the end of walking street. Park full of locals doing their own thing especially on Sundays!

I guess this is part of the old city wall, and the old street is just behind this tower, a vegetarian buffet restaurant is next to this tower.
