Take half a day to visit the ancient street of Shantang, Suzhou. It's sunny weather, green trees and flowers in spring, which make the ancient town more beautiful. Although I have been to countless ancient towns, Qili Shantang still gives me some surprises. On both sides of the clear river stood the chaotic and delicate pink walls and tiles. The houses retained all kinds of latticed wooden windows and the original mottled land separation, which added a minute of years of precipitation and historical flavor. In addition to the old restaurants and crafts with Suzhou characteristics, door-to-door shops also have fine hotels renovated by old houses and works of art reflecting Suzhou's life. More importantly, they have many childhood memories and cultural experiences, such as Kunqu Opera Hall, Pin Tan, ancient stage, sugar kneader, paper-cut and so on. Linhe also has some scenic teahouses and bars, tired of walking and resting, it's really pleasant! ___________ Walking on the winding ancient streets of the bluestone slab road makes me feel that I have traveled through childhood from time to time. It not only retains the original style of the ancient streets, but also gives modern and contemporary elements and content. There is a paradise, there is a Su-Hang, a small bridge, a watery family!
Shantang Ancient Street has a very ancient charm. There are many people and snack shops in the evening. When we go there, we try the nethong snacks one by one according to the comments we saw earlier. Sugar porridge, yogurt from the fox's house, Zhao Yuanzhang's pig's feet, Yuxingji's Fengzhen noodles are delightful to eat. There are all kinds of food, drink and play here. The evening scenery is very beautiful and the popularity is very strong. It's much better than Guanqian Street and so on. It's worth visiting.
Qili Shantang Ancient Street is located in Gusu City, which is not the Shantang Street of Mudu Ancient Town. Old buildings along the narrow Shantang River are now crowded with restaurants, inns and shops. Tourists queue up to enjoy the bright night scenery of Gusu in the evening, which is quite different from the ancient streets and alleys in the quiet daytime (morning) or afternoon (chatting with tea and sightseeing along the river). I prefer the tranquility of daytime in Qili Mountain Pond with two kinds of atmosphere.
Long ancient street, similar to Pingjiang Road, came once two years ago, full of charm, this business trip passed, the weather was late, hurried past, suggested slowly distracted by oneself, into which, slowly aftertaste, or couple's leisurely tour taste, Qili Shantang, half of the commercial street, the other half is the real life area food market, many people will say the ancient street. Now commercialization is too serious. Why don't you think how long would you stop and browse without a store? The other half of the road along Shantang Street is the noisy vegetable market. The original ecology is not commercialized, but who will stop to browse?
Shantang Street was built in Baoli period of Tang Dynasty. Bai Juyi was appointed to be the assassin in Suzhou in 825 AD. Shortly after taking office, he went to Huqiu in a sedan chair and saw that the nearby river was blocked and the waterway was impassable. When he returned to the government, he immediately consulted the officials concerned and decided to build a road around the mountain of Huqiu and began to dig a mountain and pond river. It starts in the east near Yanmen Dusang Bridge and goes West to Huqiu Wangshan Bridge. It is about 3600 meters long, so it is commonly known as "Qili Shantang to Huqiu". The night view of Qili Shantang Street is more beautiful.
It's very convenient to get to Shantang Street Station on Metro Line 2. We arrived at Qili Shantang Street in the evening. We just started to stand on the bridge at the entrance and look down. It was a beautiful picture of the flowing water of a small bridge in the south of the Yangtze River against the light. The busiest part of Shantang Street at night is in the east, and the west gate is relatively cold.
It is called Source Shantang Street, located in the northwest of the ancient city of Suzhou, Donglian-quot; the second-class and wealthy place in the red dust-quot; Yanmen, west-quot; Wuzhong's first scenic spot-quot; Huqiu. The total length is 3600 meters. So it is called Qili Shantang . Shantang Street, especially suitable for night trips, has beautiful scenery. When I hear it, I can go shopping for snacks, see small attractions, have a cup of tea and listen to the evaluation. Such a life is pleasant and comfortable.
Shantang Street was built by Tang Dynasty poet Bai Juyi when he was an official in Suzhou. The northwest end was to Huqiu, and the southeast end was at Yanmen. It was about seven miles long, so it was called "Qili Shantang". You can take a cruise ship at your own expense, or find a tea house to have tea and listen to the ratings. Recommend several specialty snacks - "1, Qianshengyuan, centuries-old shop, fried and noodles. 2. Da'a Ersheng Decoction, as its name implies, is characterized by raw decoction. 3. Zhao Yuanzhang, meat and bone burning, pig hooves. 4. Shantang flavor store, smelling stinky tofu, has always been queued up, there is only a small frying pan, so it will wait for a long time. 5. Other Internet Red Stores - "Sugar Congee, Fox Yogurt, Yuxingji Fengzhen noodles, etc. For dinner, we chose Pine Crane Tower and Centennial Store, mainly to try squirrel fish, lion's head, and Soviet snacks. After dinner, we walked back to the hotel to eat and see the night scenery.
Shantang Old Street is only 3 bus stops away from Suzhou Railway Station. The traffic is very convenient. We only visited the busiest section of the old street. There are many ancient architecture shops on both sides of Shantang River and Tongguiqiao Bridge. It is also the place with the most tourists. There are old brands of Zhaizhi Zhai, Songhe Tower, Suzhou snack sweet-scented osmanthus cake and so on. At one end of the old street, there is a cat's Sky City concept bookstore. This is my shop in Su. The third branch to the state, especially like the atmosphere of literary and artistic petty bourgeoisie inside, all kinds of furnishings are full of sentiment, unique feeling! Old Street, Yuhantang and other Ming Dynasty buildings, nearby is a stamp collection museum, you can learn a little knowledge, it is recommended to enter and see...
Shantang Street has a long history and is a famous historical street. It is said that Bai Juyi in Tang Dynasty was built under the auspices of Suzhou Taipunctuality. At the beginning of Shantang Street, there is a Baigong Temple commemorating Bai Juyi's building of Shantang Street to benefit one side of the people. Baigong Temple should be the starting point for touring Shantang Street. The whole Shantang Street is free without tickets. About 7 miles, the two sides of the street are basically antique buildings with obvious architectural features of the south of the Yangtze River. There is a river behind the shop, which is in response to a poem "Everyone else has a pillow river". In all kinds of antique shops, there are all kinds of small things on sale. The price is general. It's interesting to see.
