We bought some Wuzhen local desserts for our trip to the next destination, Thousand Island Lake. The dessert came in a cake shape, but broke into powders when you try to eat it.

Lay’s chips in dozens of flavors, Mexican Tomato Chicken, Texas Grilled BBQ, and cucumber, anyone?
A local restaurant recommended by our masseuse.
Various live fish for customers to pick from. We picked this one, one of the most expensive fish in the stock. Apparently it’s so rare that it costed us $30 + cooking fee for just a little one like this. The staff assured us its amazingly fresh taste.
The staff used a net to pick it up.
He put it in the sink to prepare its slaughter.
Tea was a common standard restaurant beverage for free.
A local wild vegetable.
Our fish cooked, the same one that was swimming in the tank half an hour ago.
There was no chance any single piece of its flesh stay.
After dinner, we went back to the tank where we found this fish, it was empty.
“Are you going to restock it?” We asked.
“Yes, tomorrow. But it might not be the same sort of fish.”
Desserts shaped in cacti.
We were so tempted that we had to go in….
We got a chocolate rice fluffy cake.
Lots of fish restaurants right by the lake, like this one.
The entire city was covered with wifi service.

We went back to the same dessert shop for one more, a duran cake.
