Taiwan singer and actress Rene Liu has been in Beijing promoting a winter tour to Wuzhen, one of the most popular ancient towns in east China. She has just come back from a visit to Xizha, a new tourist attraction in Wuzhen.


Rene Liu became a tourism ambassador for Wuzhen after starring in a TV drama set in the town. Thanks to her performance the ancient scenic town is now a popular tourist destination.

Wuzhen is about one hour's drive from Hangzhou,the capital of Zhejiang Province. With a history of over 12-hundred years, Wuzhen still has ancient buildings and old town layout. Bridges of all sizes cross the streams winding through the town.

In 2007, the reconstructed western part of town, Xizha, was opened to visitors. Xizha used to be the largest and most prosperous area of town, and dozens of intact Ming-and-Qing style buildings line the streets.

Visitors can also experience the old lifestyles in Xizha. Either sipping tea in the ancient tea house or enjoying a traditional opera in the theatre, you find yourself totally immersed in a feeling of what it was like to live there long ago.
