About Yangzhou

Yangzhou has always been a gathering place of culture and a scenic, flourishing city with many famous historical sites, ruins, and elegant gardens. The scenery of Shouxi Lake is beautiful, and here you can come to experience what was put down in the famous poem: "traveling down to Yangzhou in a misty and florid March." You can also take a boat cruise to get a sense of the free and unfettered mood which the Qianlong Emperor of the Qing Dynasty must have had when he visited the lake. Yangzhou also has places like the Gucha Daming Temple with its long and storied history. It has the He Garden with its reputation as the “City Mountain Forest,” and the year-round rock garden known as Geyuan Garden, as well as the remains of the residences of the emperors Sui Yang Di, Kangxi, and Qianlong, and countless beautiful natural landscapes.

Historical Architecture
Garden
Geyuan Garden was built in the Qing Dynasty on the site of the former Shouzhi Garden of the Ming Dynasty. At the time, the garden was planted with bamboo. Because the bamboo leaves were shaped like the Chinese character for “Ge”, the garden was thus called “Ge Garden.” The four rockeries in the garden are very unique; after making it around the garden, it’s as if the visitor has experienced spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Geyuan Garden is not large and can be divided into three areas: the northern bamboo viewing area, the central flower garden, and the southern residential area. Compared with other traditional Chinese gardens, the essence of Geyuan Garden lies in the art of the rockeries with the theme of the four seasons. In addition to the rockeries, walking in the northern bamboo forest is a very pleasant experience. Even during hot summer days, walking in the green bamboo forest often feels quite cool.

A bite of a delicious Yangzhou lion head The Yangzhou lion head in Guiyang cuisine is a must-have. The soup is more oily, the lion's head is very tasty, the meat is tender and not hard, and the primary flavor is slightly sweet. This dish is also very elegant. First of all, be sure to use pork belly, because the fatty and sinewy proportion of pork belly is suitable for the lion's head, and secondly, the pork must be minced by hand to make the meat elastic; mincing with a meat grinder and a knife will not make the meat elastic. The Yangzhou lion head prepared this way is extremely light, and you can eat a bite of the delicious meatballs!

Slim West Lake new game, and Qianlong Ye drink a cup of tea thin West Lake has several ways to play! ? Look at the garden, enjoy the architecture, boating on the lake, big food... In Yangzhou, in Slender West Lake, be sure to let yourself find a way to slow down, in order to appreciate the essence of the city. Perhaps, this season, in the slim West Lake with cinnamon, you should look like an old tree, look for a tree, sip tea, empty yourself, sit for a while. Slender West Lake knows me. In the Guihua Hall in Linshui, there is a baked tea house full of interest, selling all kinds of tea and tea, suitable for sitting and taking a rest. The tea is in the very interesting Qianlong theme cup, and the cup says "Jun can't have no tea for a day." Hey, this is definitely a portrayal of the true temperament of the Emperor Qianlong in Yangzhou. Osmanthus Hall, the north and south of the osmanthus tree, this season is fragrant, intoxicating! On the outer gallery column, there is a couplet: Lin Waizhong comes to know the temple far away, and the willows rest in the boat. In a word, the excellent location is here, the view is wide, and the Slender West Lake is close at hand. When I went there, there were not many people in the roasting tea house. I ordered a cup of tea and sat quietly for a while. The waiter is a big sister, and there are not many words in his hands and feet. When we took pictures, she did not obstruct it. At first glance, it was the kind of Yangzhou people who were not slow. 1. Teahouse has Hanfu, you can change to take pictures, but it is estimated that there are few people. 2. There are four stunning dance performances every day. The impression is that it is 9:00 in the morning, one at 11:00, and two in the afternoon 3. The osmanthus hall is actually one of the 24 scenes of Slender West Lake. "Water cloud wins", no performance vision is also very good, suitable for overlooking 4. Slim West Lake tickets are different in the peak season, you can buy in advance, go to the check-in on the line 5. Slack West Lake snack street also Worth experience, good value for money (this specific opportunity to open a single write)
