Shoe museum

Free admission, visits just need to be schedule ahead of time. Following a 1000-year-old Chinese custom, young girls' feet were tightly bandaged from about the age of five, forcing the arch upward and the toes under, to produce a foot about half the normal size. The ideal was the three-inch "Golden Lotus," while a four-inch "Silver Lotus" was not quite as desirable.
