      Wuzhen, Nanxun, Xitang, Tongli, Luzhi, Zhouzhuang

      Zhujiajiao, Jinxi, Mudu, Luxiang, Huishan. 

       

      In 2003,the protecting project of the Yangtze River Water Towns (including Zhouzhuang, Tongli, Luzhi, Nanxun, Wuzhen and Xitang) was granted the Award of Distinction by the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Awards for Culture Heritage Conservation. It has helped make the project a model for repairing and conserving other cultural relics. By car, you can easily take one day tour to any one of these towns from Shanghai.

       

      These small towns, with their black tiled, oil-painted timber framework houses, that contrast sharply with its white walls and gray flagging, brings to mind a Chinese ink and wash painting. The rivers running through the town were once the main means of transportation for local people, but these days is little used, other than for festive celebrations, when bulk cargo is shipped in. The window sills of the houses on the banks of the river are further extended with boards, on which flowers, plants and bonsai bloom in the warm sunshine, adding a touch of life and color to this tranquil, old style towns.

       

      There are many well-preserved Ming (1368-1644 AD) and Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 AD) buildings in these towns, formerly the homes of those rich enough to escape the social turbulence of centuries past. They chose these towns as the place to build their homes for its out-of-the-way location and convenient transportation, the same reasons these towns retains such an authentic feeling today.

      More info about Xitang Town:
      Xitang ancient town is located on the northeast edge of Zhejiang Province, only around 1.5 hours to the downtown Shanghai. It is level, densely distributed with rivers and has a very quiet natural environment. 9 rivers converge in this town, dividing it into 8 sections, but many bridges link this water town together (anciently called as “nine dragon holding pearl” and “wind from 8 sides”). In the town, stone-paved lanes run between age-old dwelling houses of white walls and black tiles, many well-preserved architectural groups constructed during the Ming and Qing dynasties, which boast a higher artistry and study value, thus being highlighted by the experts at home and abroad studying antique buildings. Riverside corridors are connected into a totally one-thousand-meter long corridor that is covered with roofs that protect walkers from rain and sunshine. Long and serene alleys and roofed corridors create charming and picturesque scenery that can not be found in other water towns. Every turn is another stunning photo opportunity. It is no wonder Tom Cruise used this site for his Mission Impossible III movie set.

       

      But glamour of Xitang Ancient Town goes far beyond natural beauty. It has long history, rich culture and gives birth to a number of talents, such as Yangmao, a master of arts and crafts in Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368), Gu Xidong, a famous playwright, etc. With a history of more than 1000 years, Xitang has entered the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Tentative Site. The trip to Xitang is also a cultural journey.

       

      The whole old town is like a poem and a picture. In this town, people will feel that they are seemingly in an earthly paradise. It is hard to know that people exist in the picture or picture exists in the heart of people.
