Changxing is a small town with 1700 years of history. Its ancient roots and rustic traditions make it ideal for a quiet, peaceful lifestyle.
Although Changxing exhibits different characteristics in different seasons, the peak of its beauty occurs in autumn when reinforced by the Gingko trees.
As autumn progresses, the yellow gingko leaves gradually turn red. In the gentle cool breeze, their gentle flutter can easily be mistaken for dancing butterflies.
If you choose to visit Changxing in late autumn, you are advised to join the locals in picnicking under the red leaves and picking chestnuts while staying in one of the local B&Bs.
This is Huzhou, a typical town in Jiangnan. It is nowhere as busy as large cities, where people walk down streets with in loud, rhythmic click- claps.
So take a few days off and experience life in slow motion in the rural country lands of Huzhou.
