Hongcun, Anhui province, is one of the best places to get the old world China feel.

We stayed a 15 minute walk outside of the town and found it very comfortable, but if you go and can avoid a holiday weekend, stay in town.
Staying in an old home for a great price with modern amenities, walking the streets at night, great local cuisine nearby, and beautiful shops with bamboo carvings and painted umbrellas.
