  • Picture of 西递-绣楼 Xidi

    Romantically called a lady's ball-tossing tower, but in reality one of a Hu offical's retirement and self-cultivation loft. This part of the house is unusual because it broke the village design tradition by having the private room extend out to the public space.

    One of Xidi's main road, where 2 girls are relaxing outside a restaurant. The main roads are where all the shops are. Some put there wares out, but most would stand or sit outside and persuade tourists to go inside their shops or residences to look at their collections, and hopefully make a sale.
