Yesterday and weekend, the weather was fine and there was no outing for a long time. Grassly decided to visit the ancient town of Shen'ao, an ancient village in the south of the Yangtze River in Tonglu. The village is built by water, with white walls and black tiles, carved beams and painted buildings, simple and elegant. Small villages have simple customs and many long-lived elderly people. The oldest is 105 years old. Here, I met Lu Xun's pod tree and witnessed the "bloody" scene of killing pigs in the countryside for the first time. Along the cobblestone road, visit the "Shentu ancestral temple" and appreciate the vivid wood carving patterns of the ancient buildings, savor the taste of the countryside, understand the simple and full slow life of the villagers in the ancient town, chat with the image ambassador of Shen'ao Village who is good at calligraphy at the age of 95. Wu Junlu and Zhu Yuanshu" Zhongyun's extraordinary mountains and waters from Fuyang to Tonglu can make the "flying in the sky " Those who look forward to the peak and rest their hearts; those who work in the field of economics, look into the valley and forget the enemy. Ancient town, can also calm your impetuous heart. In fact, the feeling of happiness is so simple.
Shen'ao Ancient Town is mainly composed of Shen'ao Ancient Villages, including Xu Fan, Huanxi and Dipu. Shen'ao Ancient Villages are famous for its water system and are built on the verge of Yingjiaxi. Shen'ao Ancient Town is not far from Hangzhou City. It's less than an hour past the weekend. Entering this ancient village, there are no noisy voices, no successive tourists, and even no many local stalls, "commercial flavor" almost nothing. Some are quiet alleys, pure Australian water, and quadrangle courtyards with carved beams and painted buildings. The courtyard is covered with the patio of Daoguang's early years. The inclined sun passes through softly, giving rise to a smell of dust. The winding alleys, the doors, and the occasional bird song or two are just old days without any disturbance. Most of the people in Shen'ao are old people. Walking into a courtyard and tapping on the door, an old man of eighty or ninety will come out and tell you the story of wooden carvings on the beams, doors and windows. Here, you don't have to do anything, just stop and listen to the story. There are still more than 100 ancient buildings in Shen'ao. People in the village still retain the architectural features and living customs of that era. These ancient buildings can be divided into ancestral temples, temples, stages, bridges and folk houses. The interior decoration is gorgeous. The buildings are basically built in the middle and late Qing Dynasty. Most of them are folk houses, some are ancestral temples, temples, stages and bridges. Architectural form is similar, mostly quadrangular courtyard, folk houses can communicate with each other by corner doors, back doors, simple appearance, but beams, doors and windows wood carving is very exquisite. How to get to Shenzhen - "Start from Hangzhou, take Hangzhou Xinjing Expressway, and then go to Shenzhen Expressway under Shenzhen Exit. The whole journey lasts about 40 minutes.
Last year, we stayed in Huanxi Village for two days. We visited Huanxi Village, a beautiful village, and Shen'ao ancient village beside it. All kinds of ancient buildings in Ming and Qing Dynasties are worth visiting. There are also Dipu Huahai Tulip Festival. Recently, Dipu Huahai Tulip Festival is going to invite friends to visit together. It is said that there is also a music festival. We are looking forward to this trip very much.
Very small number of ancient towns, commercialization is very light, during May Day visitors are very few, for the town feel regrettable! But perhaps it is because of the small number of visitors that the town maintained its original life style, which is very unique in the scenic spots of these towns with strong commercial atmosphere in Jiangsu and Zhejiang. Located near Tonglu service area, on the only way from Litonglu to Hangzhou, the traffic is convenient, there is time to pass by without tickets. There are many cafes in it. It is absolutely worthwhile to spend an afternoon looking at them.
There are many ancient towns in the south of the Yangtze River. Most of the impressions are that there is a small river in the middle, with houses on both sides. People in the old town live a slow life day by day. But now many ancient towns, a more commercial atmosphere, although lively and simple, but seems to lack a pure. But Shenzhen and Australia are different. They are still quiet and simple. Entering this ancient village, there were no noisy voices, no successive tourists, and even few local stalls. Most of the people in Shen'ao are old people. If they walk into a courtyard and tap on the door, an old man of eighty or ninety will come out. Occasionally a bird song or two sounds, it is a group of undisturbed old times.
The greatest highlight of Shenzhen Ancient Town is that its ancient drainage system is crisscrossed by the underground water network beneath the scattered ancient buildings. Until now, it still exerts its residual heat and has to lament that the wisdom of the ancients is worth visiting.
Shen'ao ancient town has not been developed and maintained in good condition. The central lake of the Great Ancestral Hall is very beautiful in the ecological town of Shen'ao ancient town. The whole family went to New Year's Day, not many people. The only disadvantage is that there is no place to eat around because of the Spring Festival.
Shen'ao, Dipu, Huanxi and Xufangzhong are the ancient villages in the south of the Yangtze River. The ancient town of Shen'ao is the blood village of the Shentu family. There is a big pond at the entrance of the ancient town. Along the tour route, 40 ancient buildings of Ming and Qing Dynasties can be seen.
Shen'ao Ancient Town is an ancient village in Tonglu, which maintains its original style. The whole town is dominated by Hui-style buildings, ancient fragrance and antique color. Ancient town does not accept tickets, parking is free, Shentu ancestral temple is very good.
