. . . old version
Chinese ancient water towns are well known for their ancient houses, bridges and the rivers running through them.
In these Watertowns, one can see Chinese architectures dated more than 1000 years ago; countless number of unique bridges on rivers and small Chinese boats going through them; a culture and a living style that is absent in modern busy Chinese cities.
In recent history of China, wars, the cultural revolution as well as the rapid economic development around Shanghai, Jiangsu and Zhejiang province contributed to the 'destruction' of countless number of these ancient towns and cultural relics.
I've visited some nice places of ancient water towns near Shanghi with my students from 2004 to 2006. samlih@pusan.ac.kr
