The uniqueness of the town are the bijou wooden houses and cobbled streets, by the side of the beautiful streams.

The streets are filled with music from local shops, selling traditional instrument – drums. The music from these shops light up the atmosphere, bringing the streets to live. 

That first shop on the left was where i had my album photo shoot.

Thanks to the great weather. The ‘not so cloudy’ sky allowed me to have a great view of the charming Jade Snow Mountain.
