Zhouzhuang Ancient Town

 Suzhou Attractions

Zhouzhuang Ancient Town, is a township of Kunshan City - a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Suzhou City, Jiangsu Province. The town is situated between Suzhou and Shanghai, 30 kilometers to the southeast of Suzhou and 60 kilometers the southwest of Shanghai.

There are many fantastic places and views to visit and see, including Twin Bridges, Fuan Bridge, Shen House, Milou Tower, and more. Many bridges in the town show unique bridge traditions different from other designs. The most amazing view displays a house where a boat can enter the property through the front gate and sail through the courtyard.

Zhouzhuang still retains its original layout after 900 years. Half of the houses in the locality were built during the Ming and Qing dynasties. To date the town houses around 100 ancient compounds and over 60 brick-carved gateways. Shen's Mansion, built by descendants of Shen Wansan, is a dwelling in the typical southern Chinese style common during the Ming and Qing dynasties. In its spacious compound are more than 100 rooms spread over seven yards, providing a full range of traditional architecture, including gateways, tearooms and overhead building projections spanning lanes.

The Zhang Residence was built in the Ming Dynasty. On entering, elegant wing rooms come into view, and the spacious main hall with its sturdy pillars. A river flows beneath the dim, tiled porch that is faced by the back wall, whose window opens on to the courtyard. Over this wall is the revetment, lined by mooring stones in the shape of a ruyi (an S-shaped ornamental object, usually made of jade, a symbol of good luck).

Its network of rivers and lakes is the reason why Zhouzhuang Town is spanned by numerous bridges, 10 that are ancient, and all of them covered in thick moss, with liana hanging from their arches. Along the rivers are local-style houses, fields and twisting lanes, adding a further touch of charm to this ancient town.

Zhouzhuang Water Village is characterized by the picturesque water county scenery - a perfect combination of exquisite bridges, limpid rivulets and quaint houses. Zhouzhuang is one of the best-preserved ancient water cities of China in Jiangsu province. It makes a good day trip from Suzhou and Shanghai. Today the village is still a popular Suzhou tourist destination
