The 12 traditional workshops on Zhenfeng Cultural Street also aroused the young visitors'great interest during the tour.

A dazzling array of handmade products displayed in the workshops, including embroidered shoes, bamboo weaved baskets and straw mats, seemed to stir the young generation’s memories of craftsmanship in an era where mechanization prevails.

With great curiosity, they observed a group of craftsmen at work, and some of them also learned how to make tofu and knit wool with their own hands.

A lot of local dishes and snacks also gained swift popularity among the visiting guests, such as Wanshan pork hock, one of the most famous local delicacies named after Shen Wansan, the first ever Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) millionaire, and Wadisu, a flat, thin, crisp and oval-shaped pastry.

Meanwhile, the arrival of these young souls also infused a new vitality to the ancient water town. Intermittent giggles echoed with the sound of trickling creek water, producing a joyful melody.
