Yes it can get crowded but if you go early morning the crowds are not so bad.
That the buildings and structures over the stream are still as they were is a good part of its charm.

Huanglongxi (yellow dragon brook or stream) seems to have been left behind by development and is reveling in it. At weekends this historic, almost Disneystyle, village seems to be packed, and it was as much fun looking at the masses of happy visitors, and kids...More
I enjoyed visiting this ancient town and especially seeing its older buildings and its older people. The town was founded about 2,000 years ago. It is becoming more commercialized, but likely to service the needs of sightseers.

Please note that my travel took place in...More
