It certainly wasn't crowded at all when we arrived - we pretty well had it to ourselves.
Every so often we see a sign in earnest but awkward English.
We entered just in time for a reenactment of a Chinese wedding ceremony on the canal - or maybe it was an engagement party - with a cute bride.
We then enjoyed our own little ride around the canal, the young woman captain pushing us along with strokes of the characteristic single oar at the stern.
David found us this cute little hole-in-the-wall restaurant for lunch - total bill for the three of us was about US $4.70.
We dropped in on a local winery and distillery, where they age the rice wine in these barrels.
