Have a taste of the most charming water village that retains utmost authenticity. You should definitely visit Nanxun Water Village as it boasts the fusion architectures of both Chinese and French schools.

None of above you can find any other water village in the Yangtze Delta region. It is the place to be for the true lovers of Chinese culture, history and architecture.

After being picked up by your tour guide at your requested location, you expect to take a 2-hour ride by comfortable vehicle to reach the tour destination, Nanxun Water Village in Huzhou City, Zhejiang Province.

When in the scenic area of Nanun, sightseeing begins at the Little Lotus Villa that is a compound of a big lotus pond, ancestral halls, memorial archways and semi-natural landscapes. In the late Qing Dynasty, the villa belonged to the Liu's family, the most eminent family in Nanxun. Then we walk next door to see the Jiaye Library, one of the largest private libraries at the time in the whole country. Next, we move on to stroll along the main canal on the way to the Hundred-Room Residence. During the walk for about 30 minutes, you will see old dwelling houses, shops selling various local specialty products and crafts such as the famous Huzhou-made writing brushes, and taverns with local delicacies. Actually, you can stop to have a nice lunch break at a table right beside the canal in a time-honored restaurant, as your stomach might be ready for it.

In the afternoon, you will continue walking. Before reaching the Hundred-Room Residence, you will see several ancient stone arch bridges and a local food market. Now, the picturesque Hundred Room Residence starts to be unveiled in front of you. The roll houses seemingly extending on end form enchanting black and white pictures with their reflections along with willows as shades. Next, you can opt for a gondola boat ride or just walk back to the entrance area. Before leaving, you won't miss the Old Mansion of Zhangshiming featuring Chinese traditional houses with also strong European influence.

Finally, you will take the journey home to where you got picked up if you don't special request.
