Besides He Yuan and Geyuan, Wang Xiaoyuan is the third famous private garden in Yangzhou. In the past, there were countless salt merchants in Yangzhou and countless private houses, but there were not many of them left, and even fewer of them were listed as high-quality products. Wang Shi is one of them. You can see Mr. Chen Congzhou's exposition of Wang Shi Xiaoyuan. There are Qionghua in the small garden. Near Xiaoyuan is the old block of Yangzhou, which can be visited. There are also some small scenic spots nearby.
Wang's small garden is in the southeast of the park. It's about ten minutes'walk. Few people go there on weekends. They buy a ticket for the park. They can enter it by sweeping the two-dimensional code. Wang's small garden is the mansion of ancient salt merchants, surrounded by folk houses, much smaller than a garden. But I like it more here, less people, quieter, although the area is not large, but pavilions, bridges, running water, organs are complete. In particular, there are many brick carvings, stone carvings decoration, very delicate, very beautiful. Every room has its original look, old furniture, old floors, and every room can be visited. It's very interesting.
Compared with other gardens in Yangzhou, there are far fewer people and they are very clean. Naturally, the scale can not be compared with He Yuan's garden. It is more like a house. The decoration of the house is very similar to my home, which makes me feel close. In the small courtyard, Qionghua is in full bloom, wisteria and white rattan are flourishing, sunshine is bright, quiet but lonely. The daughter of the original owner of this house still has some property rights, but she is also more than 90 years old. She is also the daughter-in-law of Xie Fuchun, the perfume powder of Yangzhou. Of course, it is very necessary to look at the old house and listen to the history. Otherwise, you can't see anything if you turn around three times or two times. Because there are very few tourists here, the guide's explanation is very detailed, which also makes me really enjoy the tour.
Yes, the characteristic courtyard, the backyard has the feeling of garden.
The earth spirits are beautiful, and the courtyard is deep in spring.
The overall environmental protection is good and the real situation is restored.
Wang's small garden, built by Wang's salt merchant in Qing Dynasty, is the most well-preserved salt merchant building. Wang Shi was originally in Anwei business, Taiping Heavenly Kingdom, the family business was torched, and later Yangzhou salt business, and eventually developed.
