Old town Zhouzhuang China
There are a lot of traditional towns and villages in China. They are called Guzhen ( 古镇 ) in Chinese. A lot of beautiful "guzhen" which are standing on the water-side exist in the area of a lower reaches of the big river "Chiang-Jiang ( 长江 )". This area contains Jiangsu (江苏 ), Zhejiang ( 浙江 ) and Shianghai ( 上海 ).
Zhouzhuang ( 周庄 ) is one of famous water-side old towns in Jiangsu Province China. Zhouzhuang is a popular sightseeing among tourists. It has a history of 900 years. There are a lot of beautiful buildings and canals which had been constructed since the age of Ming ( 明 ) Dynasty (14C ~ 17C).
I was able to enjoy an amazing time-travelling when I walked in Chinese old towns. You can also feel a beautiful history of China in old towns and villages.
