Zhouzhuang Village

 
 
As the saying goes :

Huangshan Mountain

  represents the beauty of grand mountains in China, while

Zhouzhuang

  features the mellow waterside towns. Feminine beauty was built in its very blood and soul. No wonder it was chosen one of the sites for APEC meeting site.

The town complex lies in

Kunshan

, 38 km southeast of

Suzhou

  city in Jiangsu Province. It has a history of over 900 years. It's also called

Oriental Venice

  and surrounded by water. People plant willows on the edge of their narrow yards, to be more accurate, corridors. little bridges, murmuring brooks and rural cottages, all of these come into a picture of quietness and simplicity. Bridges, with name or without name, all have their distinct views.
