Located at the southern shore of Taihu
Lake, Nanxun is an ancient water town with arched bridges,
canals, narrow lanes and ancient houses. Established
760 years ago, Nanxun Ancient Town is well-known for
its rich cultural heritage and flourishing silk industry.
It developed during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) into
one of the richest towns in China. Like other water
towns, canals run past the back door of every row of
houses here. Nanxun is unique for its combination of
Chinese antiquity and traditional architecture incorporating
European elements. The architecture here shows a most
fascinating mix of Chinese and Western styles. House
exteriors are the same as those of traditional Chinese
houses, but the interiors are decorated with exquisite
bricks, stones, glass and wood carvings that can usually
only be found in Western buildings.
