_We***00"Pure information: From shanghai south railway station you can take a bus to putuo (zhoushan) for 150 RMB at zhoushan you grab a ferry ticket for 30 RMB and a ticket to enter the island at 160 RMB (passports required also). once you're on the island there are no didi's but the island itself is small enough to walk to the north in around 2 hours and there are shuttle busses, though i didnt use them. you'll need to buy a return ferry ticket to zhoushan for your trip back on the bus.there is also a direct ferry from shanghai to putuoshan and from putuoshan to shanghai once per day but this will take you 12 hours compared to the 4 hours or so on the bus. as a final piece of infornation, yes you are actually allowed to swim in the sea here. i went around 30 meteres out having a bit of a play and a swim, this was at baibusha (hundred step beach) with lifeguards on jetskis for safety. i hope this helps you plan your trip as i had to do my own research and if you dont speak any chinese im sure it could be a challenge!very much worth it howevet,"
Yolande (Yoli)"Such a beautiful place its between old and new and you must go in the evenings with the light show and all the beautiful light displays. We had such a good time. Good food and Good vibes"
Xitang Travel: Use Caution| Umbrella: Not Required| UV Strength: Low
Xitang, probably the best water town in China among the others I have visited. It will be less to describe it as a fantasy land. Visit there in the evening and you will know the reason of my saying. I visited there on November 14 and I was so lucky because this place was closed for about two weeks and that day was the first time of reopening. I didn't need to buy any ticket (saved 95 rmb). There wasn't much crowd that day. However, I was so satisfied capturing some pictures on my phone. Not always I have this satisfaction! By the way, one thing that I didn't like about this place at all is the environment of the bar street (this is my personal opinion with the respect of the decision by the authorities). There is constant loud music (DJ and Pop) from almost every bars that I felt a complete mismatch with the environment of this water town that is almost two thousand years old! It completely changed the mood! The authority could have come up with more creative ideas to attract the young people here.
Xitang Water Town is a mix of canals, bridges, ancient buildings, and narrow lanes. It is less famous and less commercial than the other water towns near Shanghai. Nanxun is the most original and picturesque water town, filled with tranquil ambiance. the place is so calm and it's like in the movie.
Pingjianglu, Tongli, Luzhi, Mudu, Xietang, Shangtang, Zhujiajiao these are some of the popular water towns I had the pleasure to visit in China and I was literally tired of watching the same features everywhere. Thought no more water town🤭 Then I have visited Xitang water town, Zhejiang province. I think this is the best water town I have ever seen so far. It has some unique features that will blow your mind. I think I was in the trance as long as I was there😱. See it at night, I bet you will have the same experience 🤗
#yuan dynasty wonder
The beauty of Jiangnan is always inseparable from water. The water is the elf of Jiangnan, the dream of Xitang, the soul of Xitang.
This time I checked out the Xitang Huaxiang, there are many petty bourgeoisie shops, it is worth stopping and enjoying the slow pace of life...
Flower Lane has Starbucks, DQ, KFC, a little bit, Antler Lane, these They are the only brand shops. After drinking, drinking a cup of coffee here and chatting with friends is really pleasant...
In addition to drinks, there are many other foods: Chunxi Alley Food Street, Chuanguo Wang Spicy Pot, food still old Beijing noodles, snow queen, Jinyun biscuits... tasted a lot of home, the taste is very good.
There is also a favorite clothing store called grass-colored smoke, the original sitting on the original cotton and linen clothes, I have to say that the designer is really amazing, as soon as I enter the store, I have seen a lot of clothes!
The last recommended hotel is Huazhu. Hehe Jingshe, located in the north gate of Xitang Scenic Area, inside the Huaxiang, the whole environment is very quiet and the service is thoughtful!
This ancient town has come again and again, but it is not tired, and there is a kind of feeling that is probably called a water town.
Jiangnan woman Sven soft, more light and beautiful, it is like this Xitang smoke.
High wall courtyard, classical garden, smoke and rain corridor, rocking boat, projecting the taste of Xitang in different time between light and shadow.
is bound to go, the first time when I was young, there is no such bustling crowd, patted the ball through the middle, I feel that this is a great way, turn around, see the home grandmother open the door Take a stall, sell things, and reveal a historical taste from the house. There are countless bridges in
Xitang, or there are countless bridges in the water towns.
Take a leaf boat, hold a paper umbrella, shake a fan, and then pass through the bridge, on the water, in front of the house.
The shops on the shore are lined up, changing the Hanfu clothes, taking a few shots, and there are some tastes of crossing.
Xitang Huaxiang Punch Raiders
If it is said that the Jiangnan ancient town can accommodate the Jiangnan gardens only in the same place, then it is completely wrong. In Xitang, there is a very inconspicuous private garden hidden in an alley. This private garden is like a worldly paradise. The desire to construct a diverticulum to avoid red dust can get very strong hair growth here. This is the West Park of Xitang that Yamano Jun wants to share with all of his friends. In the country, especially in the area of the south of the Yangtze River, the name is called Xiyuan. What is different in this West Park in Xitang is that the gate of this private garden is in the alley. Most people dont pay too much attention to a certain door in the alley here, and they dont know that its inside the door. There is such a vast space, in such a large space can also be placed in such a large-scale courtyard, and is the mansion and courtyard of the big family. When you are walking in the hustle and bustle of the ancient town of Xitang or seeing the waters with the same scenery, perhaps the entire Xitang ancient town is no different from other ancient towns. However, fortunately, Xitang is different from other ancient towns. Apart from the highly localized button museum, this is an amazing West Park. Xiyuan is located in Sujiaong, the core of Xitang Ancient Town Scenic Spot. It is a unique architectural style and a cultural heritage in Jiangnan Alley. It is generally a very narrow alley. The alleys here generally leave gaps between the two buildings, so that the gaps can only be used by one person. This one is only one person with a narrow shoulder width. Because the alley is too narrow to distinguish the difference from the alley, Changed the name to get. The gates of the West Park as a large family home and private gardens are not in the bustling and spacious streets and alleys, but in the alleys where only one person can pass. It is conceivable how deeply the West Park is.
After entering the gate, you will be very surprised to find that the space inside is so large, in addition to the spacious, bright and atmospheric palace-style aisle, there are many rockeries and creeks. A luxurious and beautiful Jiangnan private house garden appeared in front of people's eyes. If you continue walking, you will find that there are many houses inside, and there are houses in different functional areas. I really didn't expect to enter such an amazing garden in the door of the alley. In addition to retaining the original buildings and cultural relics, the West Garden has added a lot of museums about the history and stories of Xitang from a thousand years ago to a thousand years ago. During this period, you can not only read the ancient cable, but also feel the rich and luxurious living environment of this big family. The real harvest is not as big as it is. I think everyone will love it after visiting the West Park. Therefore, Yamano strongly suggested that you must come to the West Garden to see and see the historical culture and the living cultural relics of the private gardens in Jiangnan.
Finally, some simple Raiders information about Xiyuan is classified as follows. Although they are all in the scenic spot in the ancient town of Xitang, the necessary information is still worth sharing.
