    Located in the historical centre of Lu Xun's former residence in Shaoxing, after renovation, very well preserved, in order to keep the style of the ancient city of Shaoxing, surrounding buildings are limiting building height. Just read in the book before Mr LU Xun's herb garden, boat, South of Yangtze River. To see! I am not disappointed, is imagined to look like!

    Lu Xun should know their house was developed into a tourist attraction, estimated death of being alive. But this really is a treasure.

    Nothing better to play here where more is to recall the textbooks of Lu Xun's name mentioned and see where Lu Xun once lived as a child, such as herb, for example see sanwei. Don't have to come to see, but if you live close, that it is possible to enjoy.
