Shaoxing
Anchang can be considered the most authentic ancient town in Shaoxing. The ancient town is built by the river, with the north bank being a commercial city, the south bank being a residential area, and the ancient bridges are connected between the two banks. The Shaoxing Master Museum is the most worth seeing. Shaoxing is just as famous for its master as it is for its yellow wine. A large number of pictures and daily necessities in the Anchang Folk Customs Museum can give a glimpse of life in Anchang and its customs.

Staggered people in the public, the off-season small town Jiangnan town - Anchang ancient town Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai shipping area is always particularly careless, telling the truth, I am also a lot of ancient towns in Sichuan, but always feel that Jiangnan ancient town is more beautiful, more The gentleness of the water town, but also a lot of ink aroma ~ Anchang, located in the northwest of Shaoxing, less than 10 kilometers from Shaoxing North Station (high-speed rail), this time as a relay to the high-speed rail station, again I have seen the dusk and dawn of this ancient town in the south of the Yangtze River. When it comes to Shaoxing, the first thing that comes out of my mind is Lu Xun. From Baicaoyuan to Sanwei Bookstore, from the fennel bean of Kong Yiji to the social drama of the hometown, Lu Xun culture can be seen everywhere. The hometown complex in the middle. This ancient city of ancient culture, built in the Xia Dynasty with a history of 2,500 years, is a veritable city of celebrities. In Shaoxing, I saw Lu Xuns Sanwei Bookstore and Baicao Garden, and came to Anchang. It is said that Lu Xuns place to see social drama~ Most people come to Anchang, probably choose New Year's Day or New Year's Day. Every year, the New Year's Day three-day lunar-moon festival, there is a strong social scene, good luck, you can also see the lively water wedding, and of course, the tip of the tongue. On the Chinese fire, the Anchang sausage and the long-established soy sauce ~ have come to the summer, but there is a rare clean, the craftsman who is doing the manual mold under the sun, the little daughter-in-law who cleans the clothes by the river in the morning, the businessman There is a ride without a ride, and occasionally a few tourists walk through the street, it seems to come to set off this place of outstanding people - no excessive commercialization, no net red, no card, with a summer Its just a good time~ Tips
