This ancient town is a national AAAAA level tourist attraction, one of the six ancient towns in the south of the Yangtze River, has long been famous. Before entering the center of the scenic spot, I saw a lot of floor tiles engraved with the names of the film and television dramas at the door. I looked at the names and remembered that the Dream of Red Mansions was also used here.
The most famous attractions here are Yiyuan (Retreat Garden), Ertang (Jiayintang, Chongbentang) Sanqiao (Taiping Bridge, Geely Bridge, Changqing Bridge). The retreat park is very beautiful. In the end, it is the residence of a large family. Many people take pictures inside. Jiayintang, the owner of this garden, Liu Bingnan, is the same as the famous patriotic poet Liu Yazi. Built in the early years of the Republic of China, there are four entrances, the doors and windows are well carved, and the crescent-shaped door is very distinctive.
Walk around and go to Chongbentang, now it has become a wedding customs hall in Jiangnan Water Village, showing the ritual process of marriage and marriage and customs items in ancient times.
After visiting one park and two churches, just stroll around the Third Bridge and see the boating. I also went to a place called "wearing the heart", which is quite suitable for taking pictures of art.
There is paradise on the raft, and there are Suzhou and Hangzhou. During this National Day holiday, I came to Suzhou and felt the small bridges here.
Whether you are coming to Suzhou for the first time, you will fall in love with this city.
Come to Suzhou, you must not miss the ancient town of Qilai, the ancient town, feel the charm of Jiangnan water town. This time I chose to come to Tongli Ancient Town. Because it is directly accessible by subway from the urban area, it is very convenient.
Come to Tongli, it must be a few nights to feel the comfortable life here. There is not much commercialization here. There are also many original households living here. The homestay I booked at Tujia is in a residential area. Built on the bank of the river, the window is the river. The highlight that I like the most
