    Qingshi Long Street in Qiandang Ancient Town is far away. The bridge is dripping with water. The air is wet and beautiful. The moss is covered with stone tiles. Pedestrians cross the rainy lane with umbrellas. People who live here get up early to enjoy fishing and come back from fishing to the teahouse. This is how comfortable, Qian Deng, this ancient town with a history of more than 2500 years, where Kunqu Opera came into being, and the name "Qian Deng" comes from, but with the stiffness of blood and iron - in the Spring and Autumn Period, Shoumeng of King Wu was the first thousand beacon towers to resist sea invaders, and the first thousand landed here, so it is called "Qian Dun", hence the homonym, also known as "Qian Deng". Perhaps it is from this name that people's peaceful and tranquil life is flowing in the waters of thousands of lanterns, and they are more responsible for protecting their families and their country.

    Qiandang Ancient Town is located in Kunshan, Suzhou. It is a national 4A tourist attraction and a famous historical and cultural town in China. But his fame is far less than that of Zhouzhuang in Jinxi, Kunshan. Only when you go into Qiandang Ancient Town and feel its small bridge and flowing people's ancient town, you will feel that it is no less than any ancient town. The buildings in the old town have not been specially renovated and expanded. The parallel pattern of land and water, the houses polished by the years, the rough stone roads, the alleys connected by the eaves, Gu Jian, the founder of Kunqu Opera, and Gu Yanwu, the thinker in the late Ming and early Qing Dynasties, are all worth visiting.

    Qiandeng Ancient Town is located in Qiandeng Town, Kunshan City, Suzhou City. Tickets for scenic spots are 60 yuan, if you just visit ancient towns to buy snacks and shop, but not into small scenic spots, you don't need to buy tickets!!! Scenic spots in the scenic area are distributed in every corner of the alley of the ancient town! Need to find the small scenic spots on the ticket according to the scenic spot sign, the alley tourists shop more walking is more troublesome! There are four main points of view in the ancient town, one is the longest stone street in Jiangsu Province, the other is Yanfu Zen Temple, the third is the birthplace of Kunqu Opera, and the fourth is Gu Yanwu's hometown.

Just entered a road full of Shanzhai brand, very low noisy, to the ancient town is very quiet, Sunday, tourists are not very many, the main street selling food in all ancient towns in Jiangnan, shuttle in the alleys where the people of the ancient town live, very interesting. Here people have wells in their homes and flowers in their homes. Slow living is very suitable for the elderly.

    Overall, it is not bad, because it is too small, so there is no guide, but there is a self-help guide in the public number, but the explanation is relatively simple, I hope it will be more abundant in the future. The town is free to eat and drink, but the key areas still need tickets, Ctrip 50, window to buy 60, if there are elderly people must bring ID card, Ctrip 25 yuan, 70 years old or older on the free yo, we are a family, the elderly forgot to bring ID card, so bought four adult tickets. But come out and have fun. Next time, pay attention. If you decide to enter the toll-paying scenic spot, you must buy tickets at the entrance, or you will come back to buy tickets halfway, except at the entrance of Yanchan Buddhist temple, you can buy tickets separately. No tickets to enter can only be shuttled in narrow streets, buy food and drink. We didn't drive into the scenic spot and parked on the side of the road outside the main entrance, so there was no charge. Like all scenic spots, you enter the ancient town by walking through a commercial street which is not too long. First, you cross a bridge and go straight to Yanchen Buddhist Temple. The Taifeng Pagoda is said to be in the Tang and Song Dynasties. It looks quite ancient, but you can't go up. There are bells on the left-hand floor. You can worship Guanyin, Bodhisattva, Buddha's hall, magnificent gold and blue, draw lots for 10 pieces. Interest can participate in, merit boxes have two-dimensional code, do not worry about not carrying incense money, the hall comes out on the right hand side is the Jade Chan Temple, the hall is very solemn and sacred, the Buddha lying on the bed but kind-eyed, said to be 8 meters long. After coming out, we pass through an alley. Of course, besides selling food, drinks, gadgets and toll-paying scenic spots, the second side of the alley belongs to Gu Yanwu's courtyard, which is responsible for the rise and fall of the world. The building of the courtyard is exquisite, the scenery is charming, the pavilions, pavilions and pavilions are ancient, which makes people sigh the comfort of the ancients'life and the pursuit of beautiful culture. First of all, I'm a little tired when I get home. In a word, it's very worthwhile to go. If a tour guide introduces the characteristic culture, I believe the harvest will be greater.

    The ancient town of thousand lights is really good. In the middle of the street, a few small scenic spots are also quite powerful. The service attitude of the staff is also very good. There are many kinds of snacks, and the price is not expensive. It's worth visiting.

    It's too early to find out after the straight turn. It's time to go to Qiandeng again! There are more people than straight! It's too crowded to walk! But free old town is not turning white! Hey! Eight ancient towns in the south of the Yangtze River have been playing alone for half a year! Give yourself a compliment
