Fengjing Ancient Town is located in the southwest corner of Shanghai. It is a classic example of a traditional, southern Chinese water town. The river running through the village acted as a natural border between the Wu and Yue states in the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BCE). The town spanned across the border of Wu and Yue resulting in Fengjing being hailed as the "famous historical town of Wu and Yue." As many as 52 bridges dot the landscape. Among them is the ancient Zhihe Bridge, which was built in the Yuan dynasty approximately 700 years ago. Compared to other popular water towns in southern China, Fengjing does not get quite as many tourists. You can leisurely admire the unspoiled, rural landscape, with its small bridges and flowing rivers.

Know that the ancient towns are almost the same tonality, at least in the south of the Yangtze River, the old bridges and old people also have a variety of dumplings, meat, cakes, dumplings and other snacks. Every time I passed by here, I didnt have to settle down. I was the kind of person who said to go and walk. I found that my stomach was not too comfortable, so I looked at the wilderness and wanted to find a farmhouse. Eat and eat too. There are still a lot of people here. Of course, there are not many people in Qibao Ancient Town or other surrounding people. Generally, there is no need for tickets for shopping. But if you want to go to several attractions, you have to buy a joint ticket. I used to walk around. So I am not happy to buy tickets, just take a look. The place of the archway is the entrance, so that you can walk along the bridge and the bridge along with the signs. The weather is good and you can make a cruise on the river. It seems that it is not bad to see the seeds of the melons and the citrons in the river. The sale of fresh meat with bamboo shoots is indeed popular, as well as hand-made tweezers and smoked silky stuffing of various stuffings, but I really don't want to eat it, so I have a look. The shovel of Fengjing is also quite famous, but I don't really like pork, so I passed by. I don't know how the night scene is at night. I checked that there are some individual hospitals. I have the opportunity to come and stay for one night to experience the nightlife of the ancient town and the early farmhouse breakfast. When it is traffic, it is 60 kilometers from the city center by car. If the bus is on the 1st, the subway No. 1 to Jinjiang Paradise 2 will be transferred to the Maple Line, and the one-way 12 yuan will go to the archway.
From Shanghai to Fengjing Ancient Town, the most convenient way to get to the public transportation is to take Metro Line 1 to get off at Jinjiang Paradise. From the north side, go west 50 meters to the Southwest Bus Station, take the bus Fengmei Line. It takes a speed to reach the ancient town of Fengjing and arrives in about 1 hour.
Fengjing Ancient Town is located in the southwest of Jinshan District, close to Jiashan County in Zhejiang Province, 57 kilometers from Shanghai.
The Spring and Autumn Period before 2000 was used as the dividing line between Wu Guo and Yue Guo. The culture of
Fengjing is slightly different from that of Shanghai. It has been deeply influenced by Wuyue culture. Some titles are different from Shanghai, and local culture is spread on stone pavement. The ancient towns of
Jiangnan are densely rivers, criss-crossing. This is a typical Jiangnan ancient town, adjacent to the river street. Fengjing is far from the Shanghai area, there are not many tourists, and the whole ancient town feels very quiet. There are 52 bridges in the ancient town of
Fengjing. The Zhihe Bridge is the oldest bridge in history. Although it seems to be dull, it was built in the Yuan Dynasty and has a history of more than 700 years. The existing bridge body was reconstructed in the Ming Dynasty.
Hundreds of years of wind and sun, the bridge surface has long been mottled and broken, and today is still the passage of the ancient town residents crossing the river daily.
This road along the ancient town has several corridors, which are not obstructive to the tour, whether it is sunny or rainy.
burning wheat is the characteristic of Fengjing Ancient Town.
The ancient town of Fengjing has a history of more than 1,500 years. It has produced three champions, 56 scholars, 125 people, and 235 cultural celebrities. There is a place where the wall carvings are called Sanyuan Square. It consists of a combination of the People's Square, Jinshifang and Zhuangyuan Square. There is also a monument in the middle, engraved with historical celebrities. When you come to the ancient town, you must remember to cross the three squares, pursue the names of celebrities, and feel the changes of the years.
Fengjing here, there is a wall, engraved with the "I love you" in various languages of the world, there are old moon statues, concentric locks, and thousands of red silk threads and prayer cards hanging on the trees. There are thousands of people who have the most sincere wishes in their hearts, whether it is marriage or career, or well-being. I have come to Fengjing, maybe you can follow the practice of others and be sincere to the loved one.
