  • It's a surprise that you don't need a ticket to go in with your ID card directly, but it's better to have a love song to guide you because you need people to talk about it. It's also worth seeing a lot of your life miracles. You'll see many hours of learning.

  • Though a little more commercialized, but really is with the Chinese textbook on the description of the same oh, as if the real jump from the book to the reality, although not as other places to the shock, but will make people associate with the place, do not know what the price of tickets now, expensive words on the boring ~

  • At that time heard a lot about Lu Xun's home rumors, as a cargo, in order to feel Shaoxing's eating culture, and this often appeared in the Chinese textbook literature Works of writers, holding curiosity, also want to go near where he once. Time seems to travel in the same way, I am afraid to disturb his purity. The food is really very special, and would like to bring some home for the family to taste. The custom of marriage in the old house, books and calligraphy, and some of the architecture of the ancient flavor of the most fascinating.
