Called Yu (虞) for short, Changshu (常熟) – which means “long matured” – got its name from the fact that this is a place known for its “fertile soil long free from floods or droughts.” Changshu is located in southern Jiangsu Province. Situated in the Lower Yangtze River Delta, Changshu is nicknamed the “Paradise of the Lower Yangtze” and is one of the wellsprings of China's Wu culture. Renowned sights here include the Yushan Shanghu (虞山尚湖) Tourist Area and the Shajiabang (沙家浜) Scenic Area.

Once upon entering the Shajiatun scenic spot, it is necessary to take a boat. Now it is well repaired and the roads are well built. Naturally, it is also possible to take the electric car. Just since I came here, it is natural to feel the authentic Shajiabang style.
This kind of hand-cranked boat covered by a blue-printed cloth is naturally going to sit on it.
In mid-April, the wisteria is also open here. The wisteria blossoms, with a faint purple color in front of it, and some sweet taste in the air.
Remember that there was a wisteria flower stand in the middle school. I have liked it since then, and the most anticipated April every year is because of it.
Jiangnan's blue-printed cloth is very famous. In the past, every household was hand-dyed, and now it is all machine-made.
The boat here is very tasteful, not only the blue-bottomed printed cloth on the cabin, but also the life jacket that is dressed in it. It is very style, compared to the yellow life jacket, this is not good. less.
We started off in two hand-cranked boats in tandem. Shaking a boat is very skillful. It is not a matter of generals. There is no way to get the boat to run normally.
Generally speaking, there are 6 people on a boat. We are relatively spacious and have 4 people.
Jiangnan people, singing folk songs is a good hand.
The boat is free to go, the aunt will also sing us two songs, using the local dialect, soft and soft, listening to feel very comfortable.
Its no wonder that Jiangnan people speak nicely, and I like it very much.
