As the saying goes, “There is heaven, there are Suzhou and Hangzhou.” Although Jiaxing is not in Suzhou and Hangzhou, it can also compete with Suzhou and Hangzhou. In the drizzle, the mottled old wall is dignified like ink, and the wet bluestone road stretches out into the distance. The new branch of an old willow tree dances in the warm spring breeze, on the quiet stream, the fish Chasing the petals of the peach trees on the shore…
Since ancient times, Jiaxing has become a prosperous and prosperous place. It is known as the “land of fish and rice” and “the house of silk”. In recent years, ancient towns have been hot in China, and in Jiaxing, there are two of China’s most famous ancient towns, one is Wuzhen. The other is Xitang. Although both are Jiangnan water towns, I prefer Wuzhen’s coziness and sloppyness compared to Xitang. In fact, like a place is like having a person without any reason. Just go back to the destination of your heart, this is travel.
I have been to Jiaxing three times, and I have been to Xitang twice. I have never been involved in Wuzhen. This is the fourth time I have been involved in Jiaxing. I finally have the opportunity to see Wuzhen style.

@ carrying a backpack go
How many tossing and turning nights, the distant picture came to mind, I told myself that since there is a dream, then boldly chase. I said that I am a stranger in the world. I don’t know that I am just a passer-by in the crowd. I walked across the mountains with my backpacks, crossed the river, and traveled thousands of miles.

Weibo: carrying a backpack go
Welcome to 撩
The first stop to come to Jiaxing was not Wuzhen, but the South Lake of Jiaxing. This was the birthplace of the Communist Party of China. The first National Congress of the Communist Party of China was successfully closed on a boat on the South Lake in Jiaxing. Nanhu Lake and Nanjing’s Xuanwu Lake and Hangzhou’s West Lake are also known as the three famous lakes in the south of the Yangtze River. They are known as the “light smoke, the breeze is coming”.
There are two artificial islands on the South Lake, one is Huxin Island, and the other is Cangshengyu, which is called Xiaoyanyulou. On the island of Huxin, there are ancient garden buildings such as Yanyulou, pavilions and pavilions, Jiashan cloisters, and the same density and patchwork, like a pearl inlaid in the South Lake.
When I came here, I heard Peng Zhen’s words in my ear: “This ship is not big, but the future is huge. With this ship, the Socialist People’s Republic of China was born.”
I want to turn it into a cloud in the sky, occasionally projected on the South Lake, you don’t have to be surprised, no need to rejoice, this will wipe out the trail in an instant, because I have no intention of disturbing you &middot;&middot; &middot;&middot;&middot;&middot;
Be a quiet person, choose a quiet place, don’t listen to the glitz of the world, don’t go to anyone, don’t be used by anyone, quietly and deeply guarded, and look at the rivers and lakes…
In the summer, the fence is far away, the lotus leaves in the lake are endlessly green, the spring is drizzling, the lake is covered with smoke and rain, and the scenery is all in the smoke.
Yanyu Building is the main building on the island of Nanhu Lake, and it is also a must-see for the South Lake. The Yanyu Building was built in the Jin Dynasty after the Five Dynasties. It was not built on the island of Huxin. What you see now is after the reconstruction.
Some people, some things, just think about it. May we not forget the original heart, in fact, the best scenery has been at the foot, on the road, in the heart
In the original Jiangnan town, you can enjoy the most beautiful night in Wuzhen by taking a awning boat, watching Wuzheng water, listening to a drama, and enjoying life. Smoke and rain, hanging around the narrow alleys, the pot of green tea is in a daze.
In Jiaxing, you can take a stroll in Wuzhen, stroll around the ancient town and feel the charm of Jiangnan. In Jiaxing, you can take a boat ride around Wuzhen Water. The unique charm is in Jiaxing. You can go through the alleys and find the happiest hidden in Jiaxing. the taste of. In Jiaxing, you can settle the most original ancient town-like wooden structure house, the simple and clean bluestone road, the women washing clothes by the river, the old man who lives in the stove…
I touched the desolation of stone bricks in Jiayu, and also touched the exquisite door leaf of Suzhou garden and the stone wall in front of the royal palace. I believe that the power of beauty can still reach my heart through the millennium, as long as it is quiet. Go to experience.
The beautiful architecture has its melody, its rhythm, and its tensionful vitality. The Dream of Red Mansions will include Chinese literature, painting, poetry, calligraphy, music, religion, philosophy, philosophy and so on in the chapter of Grand View Garden. Through the building, we present three words: summ, goodness, and beauty.
The first pot in the world is located in the courtyard of Yichangyefang in Xizha Scenic Area, with a huge iron pot in the middle. This pot is 3 meters high and the children sit very spacious. The edge of the pot has long been touched, and it is the background of the tourists’ favorite pictures.
In fact, the place where the cauldron is located is a blacksmith’s workshop, and there is a word on the wall. Here, you can not only visit the ironware manufacturing process, but also buy some hand-written letters such as pots, pans and pans.
The building can be heated, it can be quiet, and people who are immersed in it will be infected. If you understand it, you can keep the same or long, or high-spirited breathing rhythm, such as the magnificent Yueyang Tower. For example, the quaint and leisurely drunken pavilion is all because of the beautiful architecture, the beautiful emotions that are stimulated, and the conduction of architecture, which gives the world a natural praise for life.
You must not miss the night view of Wuzhen Xizha. When the sky is getting darker and the red lanterns are lit up, whether it is standing on a small bridge or walking through a gallery, immersed in the night of Wuzhen, forgetting the hustle and bustle of the city and integrating into a leisurely and dreamy world. There are a few lanterns on the riverside inn and the awning boat. The lights on the boat and the shore are reflected on the quiet river. The Xitang in the sound of the paddles makes people forget to return.
A family shop, end to end, is full of dazzling, varied, men and women in the shops of the old threshold, crowded, bustling, slate paved road, high walls on both sides, more and more narrow streets. Flavor snacks, hand workshops, writing and painting, local indigenous products, nostalgic books, real and fake antiques… all kinds of old objects will unconsciously awaken the past. In this old street, there are also several monuments and museums, such as the Button Museum, West Park, Wang Zhai, Shi Pi Nong, etc. I have seen them one by one, and it is quite unique.
People at night
Always drowning in the dim light, in the water
day to day
The appearance has not gone old, the heart is already ridiculous
Do you dare to come to a trip that says you are leaving?
May our encounters be like the first love, waiting for the autumn rain of the night, still in the morning light, pushing the morning window, through a curtain of light rain
With a glance
Sitting on a bench in the river, watching the people moving slowly on the promenade, watching the awning boat passing by in the river, it is a vivid picture, and the unique name of the riverside inn: Xiaoqiao Flowing water, water garden, Diaoyutai, Mengshuilou… are even more poetic. No feminine, no “new as old”, everything is so real.
People walked over the bridge, and the boat passed under the bridge. It was as described in the bridge side couplet: the boat passed through the jasper ring, and the rainbow stepped up. In the water town, boat trips are a good experience: people sitting in the boat, idling, walking through the water, like roaming in the gallery of Jiangnan Water Village!
Life, there is always the warmth of unexpected encounters, and the hope of endless life
We are drowning in the rapids of the city, day after day, burying our heads in small lattices, the appearance is not old, and the heart is already ridiculous.
The modern revolutionary writer Mao Dun was born in Wuzhen on July 4, 1896, and spent his childhood. Today, Mr. Mao Dun’s residence is still preserved here for people to visit. Today, this scene is still preserved as alive, attracting visitors from all over the world.
Xicao’s grass-dyed dyeing room, this is a large-scale workshop for hand-painted environmental protection printing and dyeing. The drying site is paved with blue bricks, and the dense poles and stepped cloth racks are erected. The scale is very large. In addition to the blue print fabric dyed by bluegrass as a raw material, the grass-colored color dyeing workshop also has a unique color baking process. The colors are rich in color and are extracted from the local grass materials. Tea leaves, mulberry bark and black eucalyptus leaves are the raw materials for extracting color. This is also the origin of the color of the grass dyeing house.
The blue-bricked cloth drying yard is erected with dense linen cloth racks, which are covered with printed fabrics. It is also floating and windy. It is also spectacular and beautiful, and the tourists are photographed in various poses.
At the entrance of Xizha, you will pass through Yuanbao Lake. When you get off the boat, you will find Andufang, and the opposite side is the dyeing house. I came here early in the morning, there are no tourists in the drying field, and the cloth that is “drying” on the high wooden frame is still a very good landscape. Because it is a landscape rather than a real drying, the lower end of the cloth is tied, and the feeling of the display and the fluttering of the cloth is reduced. Of course you have to pat it. I feel that I have shot less, and I went there again. There are tourists, but there are not many people. The store next to it sells goods made from printed fabrics.
Wuzhen is one of the four famous towns in the south of the Yangtze River. It is an ancient town with a history of more than 6,000 years. White walls, silk tiles, small bridges, flowing water, carrying the breath of Chinese ink paintings, carved beams, paintings, stone alleys, old houses, witnessed the historical vicissitudes of the scenes.

Compared to Xizha, Dongzha is more like a place where people have always lived.In the early morning, you can see the aunts who wash clothes and mops in Linhe, but because of the cheaper price of Dongzha, the tour group has been in the air since the beginning, and the voice is full of corners. Especially near noon, everyone will squeeze into the bridge to take pictures.
Dongzha is much smaller than Xizha. It takes about one hour to turn around in a circle. There are several points. For example, a boxing boat will have a performance at a fixed time. You can go and see. In addition, the wine shop must go to see, very taste.

Steamed double smell
It is a special snack in Jiaxing, Zhejiang. It combines two of the most stinky things in the local stinky tofu and stinky sea bream, adding a small amount of oil, sugar, ginger and other condiments, and then put it on the steaming water. After ten minutes, sprinkle with chopped green onion and pepper. Just a click. This dish is fragrant and delicious on the palate. Good and bad, incense and smell are comparable, just like this stinky tofu, after being corrupted, not only has the shape of ice and jade been lost, but its taste has also undergone a qualitative change. But the role of this thing between stinky and incense is extremely uncertain. There is a smell in the smell, the smell is fragrant, the more stinky the more fragrant, and the Xitang people even make this kind of smelly dish.
