Sam's Exotic Travels to the Ancient Town of Wangcun

For the most part of its 2,000-year history, Wangchun Town was the capital of local ethnic tribal kings. Situated on the confluence of Mengdong and Yuanshui rivers, the town features a bluestone-flagged 2.5-km-long main street, an ancient town wall also built of bluestone, and ethnic Tujia residents' stilted dwellings.
