Xitang, China

The Shao Xiang Gang River flows through the Xitang Ancient Town located in the Zhejiang Province of China. The Shaoxiang Gang (Burning Incense Port) lies on the banks of the river and is a commercial street as well as a river port. The street-port is surrounded by ancient Ming and Qing style houses, canals, ancient bridges, covered corridors and alleys, teahouses, and tourists attractions. In China, even today incense is an essential part of all religious ceremonies, prayers to ancestors, daily prayers, and even as an ingredient of traditional Chinese medicine. So the port has never lost its importance as a trading route for incense.
