Tour Description

Welcome to Nanxun watertown

Nanxun is known in China and abroad as the home of Jiti Silk. Its thriving silk trade helped
Nanxun earn the accolade "town of afflu-ence." Its community of wealthy merchants
gave rise to beautiful garden residences, such as
the Xiaolian Villa, the former residences of Liu Ti and of the Zhangs-all built on a grand scale and delightful to the eye. Particularly unusual is the juxtaposition of
Chinese and Western architectural styles of these garden residences: Baroque columns,
European fireplaces and French etched glass are blended into traditional Chinese buildings
with central halls, skyweUs, and carved brick gatetowers. The Jiaye Hall Library has more
than 200,000 ancient books and records; built along the river, the Hundred-Room Building is the subject of an old legend. The stone steps along the river bank and the
roof-top fire gabtes look like piano keys, rising and falling without cease, playing the eternal music
of Jiangnan, the water[and of rivers and lakes.
