September 28, 2015

Having been a home to both the Tang and Ming Dynasties, The Xitang Watertown is an ancient city nestled in the Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province. Still alive after thousands of years, the small town connects 9 rivers, which divide its 83 square kilometers into 8 districts. The Watertown is now home to small shops, restaurants, bars, a couple hotels, and even local people. Here is a brief glimpse into my day at the Xitang Watertown.
