Water Cruise in Zhenyuan Old Town
Zhenyuan County is located in the east of Guizhou Province and belongs to Qiandongnan Miao and Dong Autonomous Prefecture. The ancient yet beautiful winding Wuyang River flows between Fu Village and Wei Village, just like a Tai Chi pattern, while two large stone arch bridges cross the river like two strings linking the two villages. Since ancient times, Zhenyuan County had been an important courier station for merchants from Hunan Province. It was the only place where monks, envoys, and messengers from the capital, small towns on the southwestern border, Annam, Myanmar, Siam, and India could exchange letters, gifts, and goods. As a result, it has the reputation of being the “Southern Silk Road”.
