Spots Detail 

Slender West Lake is typical of the Chinese water-based garden art. Due to clever landscape layout, a Slender West Lake-based artistic realm is formed, in which scenery is beyond scenery and gardens are within gardens. There are two poem lines that best describe the lake garden. They go like this: "both banks of the lake are lined with willow trees; a path runs through rows and rows of towers to the mountain". Combining the grace and elegance of the south with the grandeur and magnificence of the north, the garden is well known at home and abroad. 

Dongguan Street, an important thoroughfare of Yangzhou in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), is 1,122 meters long. Originally paved with long stone flags, this street has been an arterial road traversing  It is typical Yangzhou characteristics and occupies an area of 83 hectares. With a population of over 10,000 and more than 20 important historic relics, it has recently been listed among the key historic streets under State-level preservation.

Grand Canal Fuchai, king of the State of Wu in 495 BC, excavated the Hangou Channel, the oldest section of the Grand Canal, in Yangzhou City, Jiangsu province. Yangzhou became world famous for the Grand Canal, which runs through the city from the southeast, skirted on both sides by many historical relics and natural landscapes. In June 2014, the Grand Canal was listed as a World Heritage Site

Geyuan Garden: Boasting a high aesthetic value and the longest history among all the classical gardens in China, the Geyuan Garden is a well-preserved traditional garden that was renovated and expanded by salt merchant Huang Zhiyun in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Huang based his work on Shouzhi Garden, built by a wealthy Yangzhou resident during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Its design features a delicate arrangement of bamboo and stones.
