      More detail about Lingering Garden

      With more than 500 years history, Liu Yuan (the Lingering Garden) was renovated several times and now it remains its appearance in Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 AD). As one of the largest gardens in Suzhou, the Lingering Garden is divided into four distinct areas by buildings with many small courtyards throughout. The architectural elements occupy one third of the space. This garden is known for its many carefully placed doors and patterned windows, each of which serves to frame the scene to be viewed from it. The sections are connected by a long roofed corridor which shapes itself to the changing terrain. The Lingering Garden contains 373 steles inscribed with the works of more than a hundred calligraphers from six dynasties (1700 years ago) which serve to illustrate the development of Chinese calligraphy over 1000 years.

      More detail about ancient Zhouzhuang Town:

      About 1.5 hour west of Shanghai, lies Zhouzhuang, the "Venice of the Orient," close and small enough for a quick day trip from Shanghai - it is located around 30 km to the southeast of Suzhou in Jiangsu Province, around 70km to the west of the Shanghai center. It enjoys its great reputation home and abroad for its profound cultural background, the well preserved ancient residential houses, the elegant water views and the traditional customs.

       

      Zhouzhuang, meaning Zhous village was named after Zhou Digong in the Song Dynasty (960-1127 AD) who donated more than 13-hectare of his land as the field for the Quanfu Temple. Famed as No.1 water village in China with a 900 year history, Zhouzhuang is an ancient town featuring great cultural traditions and unique architecture surrounded by water with many tributaries. In an area of half a square kilometer (124 acres), 60 percent of the Zhouzhuangs structures were built during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) Dynasties, consisting of nearly 100 classic courtyards and 60 carved brick archway door. The four streams in the town including Chenghu, Baixian, Dianshan and Nanhu, which flow through the town in a criss-cross fashion, earning the town the epithet of “The Venice of China”.  

       

      Most of the residences were built in Ming (1368-1644) or Qing Dynasties (1644-1911). They were well preserved to its original appearance. The most amazing house displays the viewing that a boat can enter the property via the front gate and sail through the courtyard.

       

      Zhouzhuang has altogether 14 bridges with unique bridge structures which makes Zhouzhuang stand out from other water towns. The Twin Bridges are the most renowned.

       

      With more than 800 years history, Zhouzhuang gained its fame only till 1985 because of a painting by Chen Yifei. The painting, "Remembrance of My Hometown", depicted the very Twin Bridges. It was exhibited in a New York gallery, and triggered the public’s interest in this stunningly pristine village. Then it was chosen to be the first-day cover of the United Nations postage stamp in 1985.

       

      Now Zhouzhuang is listed as one of the top 50 attractions in China and roughly 1 million travelers were attracted to this village every year.
