This place is a pleasant one. Life there feels slow and quiet. The shops are diversified. Xijin Ferry is not crowded and you can see people frome different ages.

Visited at night and the lights are wonderful. So many little shops and restaurants and bars and beautiful walks. You even get a dose of history although at the time you don't realise it. Loved it!!!!
