Ancient Waterside Towns in the Region South of the Yangtze River

Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces, south of the Yangtze River, have been noted for their charm since ancient times. Here, rivers and lakes crisscross, small bridges span flowing streams, ancient towns and small cities slumber near the fields and villages, presenting a picturesque scene.

Among the ancient towns, six are known far and near, three of which are in Zhejiang Province and the other three in Jiangsu Province. Most of them have a history of nearly 1,000 years. The three ancient towns in Zhejiang are Nanxun, Xitang and Wuzhen; the three in Jiangsu are Zhouzhuang, Tongli and Luzhi. The distinctive local customs and ancient houses in these six towns are alluring for visitors and are a special treat for photographers.
