Going to Nanyang Ancient Town is entirely on the rise of the moment, rushing to the name, because Henan also has Nanyang ah. Driving from Jining along Binhu Road for more than an hour, we can walk to Xidu Pass. Tickets are sold by hand with 30 pipes per person. Tickets are thin and antique. The ship's boss carries tickets with him. Ferry carrying only a dozen passengers, the town residents carrying rice noodles and eggs and tourists mixed together by boat, more people, noisy organization is not good. The ferry takes several kilometres to reach the shore in twenty or thirty minutes. There is an antique street in the town, along both sides of the ancient canal there is greening. The main specialties are lotus leaf tea, fish basket, cattail fan, lotus leaf, lotus Peng and so on. Restaurants are mainly engaged in river food. Suitable for the surrounding crowd to come here for the weekend tooth sacrifice. There is very little rice for staple food. I asked five restaurants one by one to get the answer. We can't simply evaluate the ancient town of Nanyang. For tourism, Nanyang does not do well, the management is extensive, the route guidance on the island is not obvious and easy to get lost, the cultural connotation of the ancient canal is not fully explored, and so on. Even the ferry is old, the entertainment and comfort of tourism is poor, Zhouzhuang Wuzhen is far away, but Nanyang people's style is simple, residents live and produce in harmony with tourism, and the basic conditions are also good. The scenery on the way from the ferry to the ancient town is also good. Se, far more than Hangzhou Xixi Wetland and Hebei Baiyangdian Atmosphere, but there is no sign of planned commercial development, here is the ancient town of Shuhe 15 years ago, the ancient city of Lijiang 30 years ago, which is far beyond Zhouzhuang Wuzhen. I hope Nanyang Ancient Town will keep its advantages no matter how it develops.
Nanyang Ancient Town, October is full of failures, but you can imagine the beauty of the lotus pond in July, next July again.
It takes more than an hour to drive from Jining to Nanyang Ancient Town, which is similar to Zhouzhuang Town and Wuzhen Town. But it has not been well developed. There are no tourists on the island. They are all local residents. Our Group specializes in eating fish, drinking turtle soup, chicken and tastes good.
Nanyang Ancient Town was built on the basis of Ancient Town. There is a commercial street, lotus leaf, lotus leaf, reed fans and so on. The dietary feature is fish, eating a bowl of yellow croaker soup. It's a soup made of fried finger-sized yellow croaker with pepper in it, similar to another version of paste and hot soup. With the balls fried with lotus leaves, it is another taste. Ancient town buildings built along the canal do not follow the rules of ancient buildings. There are sixteen scenic spots publicized in the scenic area, but only one house (which is more suitable) that Qianlong lived in when he went down to the south of the Yangtze River is worth seeing. The house was dilapidated, privately owned and poorly protected. It's not a waste of money to spend ten yuan on entering the house and introduce it wholeheartedly. Originally, after lunch, we had to go by boat to collect lotus flowers, but the boat owner suddenly set the price on the ground, rising from 10 yuan to 30 yuan per person, which was agreed upon. At the end of the trip, there was some regret, which was not in line with the propaganda of the ancient town to the primitive folkway. Generally speaking, the planning of scenic spots in ancient towns is not good, the environment is messy and chaotic, and the tourist attraction is not strong. If Lotus Lake can imitate the business model of Xinghua Rapeseed Flower, tourism can form a scale.
Once one of the four ancient towns of the Grand Canal, how much prosperity has been lost with the years. The status quo of the ancient town has even been sorry for the title of the national historical and cultural town. Once a toll-paying scenic spot, now in addition to a scene of Yinzhuang to charge 10 yuan, the rest are open. I had planned to spend a night in town, but after a round trip I had to dispel the idea. In the whole town, there are not many old buildings left behind. The guiding and explaining system is almost zero. After the scenic area is opened, the anti-aircraft guns on the wharf are no longer updated. A sigh. Admittedly, beyond disappointment, there are still some places to appreciate and feel. For example, along the past speed boat, we can enjoy and feel the grand scenery of the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal; without commercial supplement, we also have no ancient town eroded by modern commercialization. Everywhere we can see the peaceful and peaceful life of the elderly, the kind of atmosphere... Of course, the lotus blossom season in July will be more beautiful.
The only disadvantage is that it was too cold that day, and the feeling of free was OK! __________
Yes, it's worth visiting and recommending a one-day tour. It's exciting to ride in a speedboat.
By boat, the most impressive thing in town is eating. The restaurant is very economical and tastes good.
