Located in Jiashan county, Jiaxing, Zhejiang province, Xitang is about 100 km from Shanghai. It can be reached either by train on the Shanghai-Hangzhou Railway or by bus along the 320 national highway. Known as an ancient town with a history spanning over 1,000 years, Xitang was a place shared by the Wu and Yue states as early as the Warring States period. Setting it apart from other water towns, it has roofed streets alongside rivers with a total length of 1,000 meters, much like the Summer Palace corridor.
It was made famous when Tom Cruise sprinted and shot his way through town while making Mission Impossible III.
