The town streets are so narrow that there is no cars, only motorcycles and not everywhere. The atmosphere is quiet, people are sitting in front of their houses and it's not too difficult to chat a bit if you know some Mandarin.
Chongwu Local Customs
It's convenient and cheap to take this kind of vehicle. The standing woman on the rear is the ticket seller and her husband the driver. About 8 passengers can sit inside. If there's more he can stand on the rear too. One yuan for one way between Chongwu ancient town and Dazuo port.Related to:

Chongwu Warnings and Dangers
When trying to board the bus back to Quanzhou from Chongwu we were pushed and jostled by a huge crowd of people trying to get on.During this process one woman fell over and after we failed to get on the bus we discovered that we had been pickpocketed! Someone had stolen my husband's wallet containing credit cards,money and so on. This is the ONLY time in 3 years of living in China that this has happened to us.There is no bus station, you just board the bus in the middle of the main street.So beware you have been warned!.The people here are poor simple folk and they can pick out foreigners as easy victims.
