Lang Bridge :Lang Bridge (Veranda Bridge), also named Huimin Bridge, is the only wooden bridge and the most featured span in this town. It has wooden bars on the two sides and upturned eaves above, just like a narrow corridor..Chen Shuchang, a native of the town, donated 100 000 silver dollars for the construction of the bridge.
