Old Street (Lao Jie)

Recommended
In the centre of Tunxi, the picturesque cobbled Lao Jie, or "old street", has retained its traditional vermilion façades adorned with friezes and sculptures depicting mythical animals and characters. Be sure to stop at the former apothecary, which still houses a medicinal plant library. The street continues westward via an old six-arched bridge dating from the Ming dynasty (17C).
