Tunxi is an old trading centre built around the junction of two rivers. It consists of the original part of town, which is along the bank of the Xin’an Jiang and a new quarter situated by the train and bus stations. Tunxi is a prime example of classic architecture of the region and there are two Ming dynasty houses in the backstreets, both examples of the Huizhou style. The design of galleried rooms set over two floors based around a courtyard proved to be so popular that it became the point of reference for houses in central and eastern China.

The highlight of Tunxi is Lao Jie (Old Street) which dates back to the Song Dynasty. Many of the trades people from Tunxi were involved in the construction of Hangzhou under Emperor Huizong and once they returned back to Tunxi they copied the style of architecture when building in Lao Jie. During the Ming Dynasty many stores were built and it gradually became the distribution centre for Anhui in the Qing Dynasty. The street is paved with maroon flagstones with shops on both sides of the local Anhui style of stone base, brick construction and tile roof. These buildings have the appearance of shops at the front, with houses and workshops to the rear.

Well-worth a visit is the Tunxi Museum with furniture from the Ming and Qing dynasties, calligraphy, paintings and china. Another good museum to visit is Wancuilou, the first private museum of ancient architectural style, which has the biggest inkstone weighing more than 12,500 kilograms.
