Shaxi Ancient Town
Shaxi is a town located in the middle of Taicang City’s jurisdiction. It is about 50 kilometers away from Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport. As a rare ancient town, Shaxi has a long history and distinctive sightseeing and rich specialties. To praise and memorize its amazing scenery, there is a folk saying that “eighteen towns in South-East, Shaxi is the first” floating around the region.
Thank to its amazing attractions, tourism has become a new economic growth point. In the increasingly modernized society nowadays, more and more natural places are ruined. So it's rare that Shaxi can be protected in such a good condition. Due to that, Shaxi gained many titles and high reputation all over the country. Ancient town Shaxi actually has a nickname “the second Zhouzhuang”, but that doesn't mean the landscape in Shaxi is inferior to Zhouzhuang. In fact, each of the two towns has its special flavor.
Water Construction, Stone Arch Bridge and Old Street are Shaxi's three main features differing from other towns.
