If you go somewhere for a week or a bit more it's inevitable to have a Saturday night included. Saturday night at any heavily tourist populated are can be bad, but Hongcun was a lovely suprise: it was lit with lampions, everything was open till 22:00 at which point everyone went to sleep.

We've slept in an actual mountain monastery, so we knew it's different when the place has a history and you're staying at an old place. The unexpected part was that our accommodation, well within Hongcun, was immaculate: clean, interesting, with lovely people running it. And for Saturday, it even included a baby corgie.
