Xitang is a delightful place to visit and explore there are no roads in this part of the town, just canals and lots of tiny alleyways like this one.
This is not a very artistic photograph, but it is a good representation of the type architecture that is common in this part of China. And while not particularly beautiful, Xitang has its own special charm that most other tourist towns seem to lack.

Very nice!! I like this narrow walkway. Nice colors and detail on the buildings. The man walking gives this picture life. TFS

Focusing the man will maybe be better, but you've captured very well the feeling of those street.

a bit unfocused but you clearly get the hutong feeling...

I like the composition and colors of this picture. The red lampion above the narrow alley is a real eye-catcher within all the earthen, subdued tones. First I was a bit irritated by the fact that the man is out of focus, but in some miraculous way it works for this image.
