  Surreal Xitang
by GlobeTreckingCanuck

If you are interested in visiting China's equivalent to Venice then check out Xitang. It is a quaint town currently unscathed by the wave of tourists. This is also where the final scenes of Mission Impossible III were filmed. I spent the day here walking through all the streets and alleys. The best part of the experience was the sunset and evening. The town takes on a surreal light. For more information about this town, check out this website http://www.xitang.com.cn/eindexx1.htm
