  • After the long narrow alley, for today to visit the former residence of Hu Xueyan kicked off. Into the house, do not feel that there is a special. However, the more we walk, we find that after each door is a different world, shuttling among them, like into the Treasure mountain is not empty handed back!

  • There are not many visitors, do not know is not because of the day to go to the rain, plus to go to the edge of the ticket! But I think it's a place where there's a lot of space, and it makes people wonder what it feels to be living inside.

  • Well-preserved local official's House, built in the 18th century, recently renovated and open to the public. From the railway station can be reached on foot. Input from the main street and around to the street. On the corner is a pointer. There are almost no people. Not many people know that such beauty is hidden here! Furniture, inlaid with mother-of-Pearl, porcelain, kitchen with oven and kitchenware, lamps. Gorgeous grounds, not worse than the famous gardens of Suzhou. Entry 20 Yuan.

  • The former residence of Hu She're crush against, located at 18 Yuan Treasure Street in the upper town of Hangzhou, is the former residence of the red top merchant Hu She're crush against in the late Qing Dynasty. Hu She're crush against is a successful businessman and Aleppo deep in the rights of the right person. But the cause of politics is failure. The political relationship has been linked and let him slide from the peak. Hu She're crush against residence, the whole occupies an area of 10.8 acre, very large. After the death of Hu She're crush against, many of the people who had been in the school, the dance troupe, The Factory room, the dormitory and so on. 2000 Hangzhou Municipal Government decided to be presided over by the Hangzhou Museum of Hu She're crush against home, repaired after 1 years. The whole Jiangnan small bridge flow wind. There are halls and kitchen rooms. Because the wives and concubines grandchildren many, even has own family school. Come here to appreciate, in addition to Jianjian architecture, but also through the house layout, glimpse his life, distant want the story of the year.
