At Former residence of Xueyan Hu, get a glimpse of the wealth and splendor of the richest merchant of the Qing dynasty. The only merchant who was awarded with a read-topped hat--usually reserved for the court officials--built the residence in 19th century. Go down a secluded alley that leads to the front gate, then notice the shoe-shaped ingot pattern on the floor--a symbol of good fortune. Walk around the labyrinth of open-air corridors, oriental gardens, rocky areas, pavilions, and towers. See the hall, which Hu built to watch opera. Notice the Western-style chandeliers hanging in the main hall, where the merchant used to entertain foreign guests.

  • 高大的围墙围住故居的神秘色彩,进院是种迷宫的路线,房廊花园都很相似但有差别,每壹个组成部分都很精致,最大的景点是芝园,假山里有溶洞可以捉迷藏,假山上有亭,水池里的大鲤鱼好肥,壹座翻修保护的不错的故居 
  • 故居很大,很精致,部署的巧妙,布置得精美,每一个设计都有一定讲究,虽然外在不是很奢靡,但是样样却价值不菲,也是一种低调啊~~
