Wuzhen is an old Water Town located on the banks of the Grand Canal. It’s just a couple of hours north from Shanghai. Locals with a help of government carefully restored and renovated this 13 century old beauty. They turned it into an interesting touristy place. The town is extremely busy during day time. I decided to get up at 5AM and stroll the cute streets while the town was just waking up.

It reminds me to Shu he, small naxi village located close to Lijiang, in Yunnan. Beatuful pics indeed.
These small water villages are really beautiful, and a nice change of pace from busy Shanghai. A taste of old China. Great photos.
