Zhouzhuang :Labbled as “No.1 Water Village in China”, the 900-year-old Zhouzhuang will strike you with not only the elegant environment surrounded by rivers and lakes but also the well-preserved simple architecture of the Ming and Qing dynasties. The most pleasant thing to do there is to walk along the banks of waterways or to row a boat through the ancient stone arch bridges to view along the waterside the residential house built hundreds of year age. It is a unique experience that will impress you long time to come.Zhouzhuang gained its fame only till 1985 because of a painting byChen Yifei. The painting, Remembrance of My Hometown, was exhibited in a New York gallery, and triggered the public’s interest in this stunningly pristine village. Most of the residences were built in Ming (1368-1644) or Qing Dynasties (1644-1911). They were well preserved to its original appearance. The most amazing house displays the viewing that a boat can enter the property via the front gate and sail through the courtyard.

Double Bridge connected by two bridges as a whole stone Bridge was built in Ming Dynasty. It is firm and simple, and composed by a stone arch bridge and a beam bridge.

The two bridges were rebuilt in the Qing Dynasty.

It attracts teachers and students of art from different parts of county to paint in the four seasons, and photography lovers take camera and select the best shooting angle.It is the antitype of the famous oil paiting Hometown Memory of artist Chen Yiefi.

The Zhang’s Hall of Residence It located to the south of the Double Bridge.

It bought by Zhang's family in the early Qing Dynasty. Zhang House has more than 70 rooms and takes up about 1,800 square meters. Yuyan Hall is the main hall, which is bright, simple, quaint and elegant. Thick west columns of the hall stood upright on a pier at the Phoebe drums, solid as stone, was indeed the legacy of the Ming Dynasty house. There is a river flowing through Zhang’s house that makes Zhang’s house graceful and dapper. The back hall was designed a row of special windows, and through the window and we can enjoy the backyard flowers and trees.
