This is the second photo of the Xitang series. Xitang has four major bridges, and this is one of them.
For those of you didn’t see my previous post, here is a brief intro of this beautiful water village:
Xitang (Chinese: 西塘) is an ancient scenic town in Jiashan County, Zhejiang Province, China. Its history dates back to at least the Spring and Autumn Period (771 to 403 BC) when it was located at the border of the State of Yue and Wu. Xitang is a water town crisscrossed by nine rivers. Its ancient architecture was well-preserved from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasty(1644-1912).
It’s a 2-hour drive from Shanghai. This photo was taken in June, 2011 during my trip in China.
