7/23.- Zhouzhuang, main canal


The city of Zhouzhuang is traffic free. It is small enough to be visited in a few hours. Because this is one of China's top tourist destinations some parts of the town are overcrowded with Chinese tourists.

Walking along the narrow alleys of Zhouzhuang is a good way to see the ancient houses that have been torn down almost everywhere else in the region. At the same time is a good place to see how fast China is changing. I was surprised to see how the most advanced and expensive digital cameras belonged to local tourists.
