Zhouzhuan holidays photo copyrighted by: Kazuo Lim Khee Boon
Zhouzhuang is well preserved over 900 years, renowned for its century-old traditional houses and stone bridges over the flowing streams and canals. It is one of the most famous water townships in China, noted for its profound cultural background, the well
preserved ancient residential houses, the elegant watery views and the strong local colored traditions and customs. It was once a flourishing port, specializing in silk, pottery and grain. It attracted scholars and officials who built fine bridges and houses between the Yuang and Qing eras. The charming Old Town can be
explored on foot or via a boat tour on the canals.
