1. It's very worthwhile to go and commercialize. 2. Ancient colour and fragrance. It's not far from the city. Generally speaking, Huai'an is a small town with antique flavor. No tickets are allowed here. I have always believed that such scenic spots should not be allowed to accept tickets. They should be places where culture can be inherited and developed. 5. Don't miss Huzui Street, which is the most worthwhile place to go.
In the rain, we visited the ancient town under the river. Huai'an is a famous historical and cultural city, Hexia Town is the core area. Liang Hongyu, Wu Chengen and other historical celebrities were born here. There were 67 Jinshi in Ming and Qing Dynasties. They have the reputation of "the hometown of Jinshi" and profound cultural connotations. The town's old shop produces and sells snacks such as tea powder and pickles, which have a unique taste. Hundred-year-old shop in the street "Wenlou" is worth visiting. Huaiyang cuisine does have culture and charm.
It was known before that this is one of the most primitive ancient towns preserved in northern Jiangsu. By that time, it was already evening. The archway and the couplets on both sides of the town still showed a primitive style, and they could drive in, but the more modern the buildings were, the more modern the buildings were. Interestingly, several bridges along the river are also wide enough for vehicles to drive through (many ancient towns even if cars can drive in, the bridges in the town can not drive). Every shop here maintains a primitive decoration style, and its facade is very classical. The plaque with gold characters on the black bottom really shows its primitive mood. It's a side road named Valuation Street. After entering, you can see many old and even some dilapidated shop doors, including traditional Chinese medicine hall, barber shop and, of course, Huaian local products such as crispy cakes and steamed buns. Stores. It can also be seen that the walls retained some slogans during the Cultural Revolution period, which has a great sense of the times. On the opposite side of Value Street is a village dwelling. The road is very narrow and it is difficult for vehicles to pass, but it can be parked. The whole ancient town road is quite wide, the road surface is relatively flat, and the traffic is very convenient. Along the flowing river, walking across the curved bridge, I feel similar to the south of the Yangtze River, but there are other artistic conceptions.
It rained a little on the day I went. I took a boat from Huai'anli Canal Wharf for an hour and went directly to Guzhen. It rained all the way. There was a feeling that the emperor went down to the south of the Yangtze River by boat. There are not many people in the ancient town, but the old houses and the slate-paved alleys give me a sense of traversing!
Hexia Ancient Town is located in the northwest corner of Huai'an District, Huai'an City, Jiangsu Province. It was once known as Beichen Town at the end of Guhangou's entrance to Huai River. It is one of the core protected areas of Huai'an historic and cultural city. Here was born the hero Liang Hongyu, the great writer Wu Chengen and other historical celebrities.
The ancient town of Huai'an is very good, and Wu Chengen's former residence is also located here. It is very characteristic that the ancient governor's palace of water transport is located in Huai'an, and only then did we know that Zhou Enlai was born in Huai'an. Fangfang's private dishes taste good.
Very good place, and not much commercial development, a strong sense of history, you can see the comfortable life of the ancient town people at that time. The slate road is very historic. The people living on both sides of the street are local people. Some do some small businesses. It's worth seeing.
The ancient town in the middle reaches of the misty rain, savoring the past feelings carefully, has a different flavor.
Premier Zhou Enlai's hometown in Huai'an City, where the hero Liang Hongyu, the great writer Wu Chengen and other historical celebrities were born. This time we came to Hexia Ancient Town, which has been developed recently in Huai'an. Hexia Ancient Town is located in Chuzhou, Huai'an City, Jiangsu Province. It is the most well-preserved historic block in the ancient city of Chuzhou. The Street maintains the architectural style of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. More than 80 (%) of the dwellings were brick and wood structures before the Republic of China. The buildings before the Qing Dynasty accounted for more than 70 (%) and the stone pavement accounted for 90 (%). The historical features were basically well preserved. The representative streets, lanes, bridges include Cheng Bridge, Laifeng Bridge, Apple Bridge, etc. From Huai'an City to Xiagu Town, bus is the best choice. The No. 69 bus in Huai'an can go directly to Hexia Ancient Town. Take No. 39 from Huai'an Railway Station to North Jiangsu Market and transfer to No. 69 to Hexia Station. The biggest difference between Hexia Ancient Town and other ancient towns is primitive and natural. Especially the more you go inside, the more you will feel a kind of primitive and non-commercial. In Huaian, due to the development of salt industry, a unique dietary culture has been formed. At the same time, Hexia has five characteristics - "cultural, military, salt, traditional Chinese medicine and food. The ancient town of Hexia makes full use of the characteristics of canal tourism, especially in the evening, with lanterns and water lamps, it is very beautiful. It feels like Xitang and Wuzhen. The ancient town of Hexia inherits the rich characteristics of Huaiyang cuisine, and Hexia is the first famous town of Huaiyang cuisine. The past dynasties were an ancient town of consumption, with many rich people and many diners. The master cook invented a variety of dishes to meet the needs of the rich. For example, crab soup bags in Wenlou and eggs in Wenlou are the representatives of Huaiyang cuisine. However, as the scenic spots are not yet mature, leading to poor development of shops in the scenic area. It seems that Hexia Ancient Town still has a lot of room for development.
On that day, I went to Hexia Ancient Town. It was quiet on the whole. Nobody was there. It happened to be a light rain, and there was still some artistic conception. The town is very antique, although the place is a little small, but the scenery, charm does not belong to Wuzhen in the south of the Yangtze River and so on. Especially in the evening, the river lantern lanterns are beautiful and free at present, which is worth visiting.
