Zhouzhuang Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 16 photos

Zhouzhuang – Venice of the east.

The condensed version of the story was a painter had created this famous twin bridges oil painting which ended up in the office of the Arm and Hammer Company in the United States. This painting was presented to Deng Xiao Ping at a later date and the whole Zhouzhuang was re-discovered and the rest was history.

Step back in time

This ancient town is one of the many town abounds with rivers and lakes in Zhouzhuang. This 900 years old town still remains as it was, minis the tourist of course. The typical style and features of the waterway remain unchanged. The houses with sidewalks were built along the naturally turned waterways. Stone bridges that cross over the cannels are everywhere. A few of the properties used to own by the wealthy landlords are open to the public for viewing. This is only one of the many typical towns in Zhouzhuang and the whole East China. This is the kind of China I wanted to experience.
