    Buying Mai Ya Tang!

    What to buy: Mai Ya Tang is the specialty product of Wuzhen. It is sweet and sticky. We used to be able to buy these in Singapore decades ago (during my Grandma's time), but it is getting more difficult to find them in Singapore now.

    Some shops show you how the sweets are made. Our tour guide took us to this shop, which supposedly sells the best Mai Ya Tang in Wuzhen. The sweets are all freshly made, and the workers in the shop invited us to taste the sweets before buying. The sweets come in boxes of 20 individually-wrapped pieces, each box costs 10 RMB.

    Pulling the dough

    What to buy: Malt Candy. You can see the people making the malt candy, very interesting. They will knead it, pull it and cut the dough into small pieces and package it. We bought 1 box of malt candies and they tasted real sweet.

    What to pay: 10RMB for 1 box of around 10 candies.
