Huzhou Dai Biaoyuan—a poet from Yuan
A range of mountains rises from Mountain Tianmu. Rivers, streams and
canals flow from Lake
Tiahu. I have traveled to
every clear and beautiful place in south of China and only to find that Huzhou
is the most ideal city to live in.
Named after Taihu
Lake, Huzhou is located in the
northern part of Zhejiang
Province. With Shanghai City
to its east, Hangzhou City to its south, Anhui
Province to its west, and Tai Lake
to its north, it lies at the heart of Yangtze River Delta and has always been
known as “land of fish and rice, home of silk and state of rich cultural
heritage”. With favorable natural conditions and well-preserved ecological
environment, Huzhou boasts abundant tourism resources. Clear waters and green
mountains scattered around have produced a unique scenery as depicted in Dai
Biaoyuan’s poem. The ancient town which once enjoyed high prosperity in the
south of China
has rendered the city a touch of antique and classic. Thanks for its
deep-rooted calligraphy and painting culture, the air seems to be fiiled with
the fragrance of ink-brushes. Every tourist coming will be impressed by the
pastoral life led by local farmers as described in the line “In front of
western hills white egrets fly up and down, In peach-mirrored stream mandarin
fish are full grown”. On this land, one can not only take in the full beauty of
tea culture shrine but also have a wonderful view of the vast sea of bamboo
and ecological, this is Huzhou--a place where mountains and water are naturally
combined, where ecology and humanity are harmoniously integrated, where history
and the future are closely connected.
