In 2003,the protecting project of Yangtze River Water Towns (including Zhouzhuang, Tongli, Luzhi, Nanxun, Wuzhen & Xitang) was granted the Award of Distinction by 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. 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 the tranquil, old style towns.
