Ancient feel is everywhere. Love museums, and street magicians, and famous Zhoucun Cookies with sesame seeds using ancient recipes. In the evenings I love to look and/or participate in fitness exercises with locals organised across the street near city square.

Very crowded but most enjoyable small shops and local entertainment. I enjoyed the glass blowing shop and also found some silk scarves at a good price adjacent to the museum entrance.

Entrance to the Ancient City is free but a ticket (buy at the entrance) is required to visit the old houses and factories. Lots of little shops selling the usual tourist tat.
