On the way out from the water village, you pass through a market area that is normally a tourist trap to squeeze more dollars out of the visitors. Here it is quite well integrated into the village and does not feel too out of place.
Some of the storekeepers look like they just stepped out of an old movie.
You can buy a Chinese fan and get it customized with special dedications or poetry.
Or get a pipe and smoke like a local.
There are also lots of local delicacies to sample. Like in the other water villages, there are lots of stewed pork which always look delectable.
There are also a surprising variety of delicate snacks and desserts on offer.
Having a break at the market area - enjoying a few nice snacks, make a pleasant ending to the visit.
