Zhouzhuang is one of oldest water townships and considered the “Venice” of China. The locale is an hour from Shanghai and southeast of Suzhou. Each of the ancient residential dwellings are well preserved and have accessibility to elegant watery views of the lakes and rivers.
Two or three generations may live in a home and the families appear extremely private about their personal affairs. They stay very close to the collective and were oblivious to us as tourist.
Enjoy the Waterways!!!!!
