Many famous people have crossed the River here and written poems to praise its spectacular beauty. Marco Polo, a famous Italian traveler, once landed here and crossed the Yangtze River.

In modern times, with the river beach silting up, it is no longer a ferry, but it preserves a large number of historical sites for viewing. Many interesting shops are set up in the ancient buildings, on which the post and panel structure is decorated with vermilion overhanging eaves and carvings, and years mottled counters and cunninghamia ten plank doors are there in the two-layer well-proportioned buildings.
