There are 2 scenic must see places here in Wuzhen - the Dongzha Scenic Spot and the other the Xizha Scenic Spot.
Well actually, it's not really a 'spot', but 2 quite huge water villages built along the river.
I started my day visiting the smaller of the 2 is Dongzha, which has a very broad pathway along the river, and with many real houses still there - and the villagers living in them.
On the other side of the river and parallel to it, is a long street of their authentic old houses. However, most of the houses seem to have their doors closed, which is a pity... but I guess to keep their own privacy.
Besides the houses, this quite cultural place has a fair bit of museums sharing what their culture is about - including this 'blue dye' cloth making (batik China style). I'm impressed the way they hang it up!
However, it's not the museums that caught my attention, but some beautiful shots that one can take just walking down the lanes in Dongzha.
The bird cage is most likely put up for tourist purposes - haha!
The mini stool meant for adults! This one I think is for real.
But that wasn't my only rest-stop, as this whole area of walking really get the legs tired (think a total of 5 hours non stop).
So before I left, I was looking for another restaurant. But not wanting to over indulge, yet wanting a good place to rest (by the river of course!), I just ordered the 8 yuan chrysanthemum tea (which Wuzhen is famous for).
And as for the oranges - I've brought it along with me (I bought from the night market) and asked them to cut. They served it so well!
And after the good rest, I was ready to continue my journey to the other scenic area - Xizha, which is touted as the more scenic of the two.
That's coming up next! :)
