Zhoucun Ancient City is located in the western urban area of Zhoucun. It is a handicraft industry and commercial city established during the economic transformation in late feudal times and remains well-preserved after hundreds of difficult years. The ancient city crosses through the surrounding city. Full of shops and possessing a wildly different architectural style, the ancient city has been called “China’s living architectural museum of ancient commerce.” Zhoucun is famous for its handicrafts, auxiliary agricultural products, and silk-weaving industries. It developed into an important commercial center in north China during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1912).
