    Favorite thing: When you venture into the heart of Tunxi, if you are Chinese, you'll realise what I'm trying to say. If not, don't bother.

    Remember those sword-fighting movies or tv serials you watched when you were a little boy or girl? Remember those streets where the swordmen would take a rest & sip their tea? Well, walking around in Tunxi give you a sense of what being in a movie is like.

    It's strange in some ways, because those people are not dressed like in the olden days, yet, the architecture & the ambience resembled that. & then you'll keep looking up to see if some beauty would appear!
    Just a very strange experience ...

    Favorite thing: Tunxi is not where most foreigners will venture on their first trips to China. It's nothing like Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing or the West Lakes. It's not Tibet, Urumqi or Chengdu.

    In fact, most people won't be venturing here unless they are on their way to Huangshan.

    Hence, this is also one place where you have a lot of chance to mingle with the locals. But first, you've to learn to speak Mandarin. Forget about English, I don't think anyone on the streets speak that. You'll have some luck in antique shops though ;-)
