Qinghefang, also known as Hefang Street, is the most intact ancient street in Hangzhou. Qinghefang has been the prosperous area of Hangzhou since ancient times, east of Xingong Bridge in Hefang Street, and is the site of the Song Dynasty Emperor Gaozong Palace in the Southern Song Dynasty. The Zhang Jun residence, which was named the Qinghe County King in the Southern Song Dynasty, was called Taiping Lane at the time, so the area was named Qinghefang. During the Southern Song Dynasty, the Qinghefang shops and the teahouses of the restaurants were row upon row, and they were the political and cultural center and merchants of Hangzhou. After the Yuan, Ming, Qing and the Republic of China until the early days of liberation, this area is still the bustling commercial area of Hangzhou. Tourists love to return to ancient times, and the ancient street culture is popular throughout the country. Photo by D750 14-24 Kingston Grand Ideal Home
