Day 1:


According to my plan, I took bus from Wuxi to Yangzhou. Arrived at the
hotel at 14:00. On the way I could notice clearly Yangzhou is very
clean, green and beautiful modern city. The hotel where we stayed is
called “Slender west lake”. Yangzhou Slender West Lake hot spring resort
is located on the pictures thin West Lake, only a road to the east gate
of Slender West Lake. The resort covers an area of 130,000 square
meters, equipped with hot springs, accommodation, catering, business
meetings, leisure and entertainment facilities, only 5 minutes away from
the city Wenchang Pavilion. Song Jiacheng, Daming Temple, Guanyin
Mountain and other famous scenic spots around Yangzhou, surrounded by
rich tourist resources, weekend resorts and leisure resorts. There every
room is a different cottage with mixed of old architecture and modern
facilities. Every room is far from another with well-furnished by
individual bathtub under open sky.

Foshan is an extroverted economy
developed city since ancient times and there are many foreigners, so
"Foreigner Street" came into being.

After having some rest in my cottage, went to another cottage with other
photographers and models to enjoy the flower arranging in bathtub with
milk. There we watched live show of flower arranging with beautiful 2
Chinese model. I could imagine the old king palace culture when Queen
used to take bath with milk and flower. Later we went to have dinner and
tasted HuaiYang food. To be mentioned Huaiyang Cuisine is one of the
four traditional Chinese cuisines, originating in Yangzhou and Huai’an.
The restaurant is full of Huai and Yang characteristics. Most of the raw
materials are mainly aquatic products. Most of Huaiyang cuisines are
mainly based on Jianghu River, supported by top cooking, with the
essence of the taste as the best, and the pursuit of good tastes, but
also the elegance and elegance without losing its elegance, especially
the unique concept of harmony, precision, purity and newness. First
day’s trip finished after the dinner as it was raining outside.

Caiyang Street is Foshan's Foreigner
Street in the Qing Dynasty. 22 foreign business halls at that time were
all set on this street. It can be speculated that the foreigners in
these halls came to Foshan to do business.

"Buying" is divided into two cases:
first, buy products manufactured in Foshan. Foshan has developed
handicraft industry, and the more than 220 fields of the industry can
provide three or four thousand kinds of goods. Second, buy the goods of
mainland China that gathered in Foshan. In ancient times, Foshan was one
of the "four great gatherings" known throughout the country, collecting
businessmen and goods from all over the country. Naturally, Foshan was
also an ideal place for foreigners to choose and buy Chinese mainland

DaY 2:


Our second day started with nice morning tea-breakfast in an amazing
natural place surroundings by water and green trees. It was kind of a
hut which surroundings are open. We learned and tasted Yangzhou’s
characteristic tea and breakfast presentation culture.

澳门电子游戏网址大全 ,According to historical records, more
than 80% of Guangdong's foreign merchant ships came to buy Foshan iron
pots during the Qing Dynasty, and even 10,000 kilograms of iron pots
were installed in one ship, which were sold to Southeast Asia or North
America, making traces of Foshan iron pots everywhere. Caiyang Street
located in the south of Foshan was the center of foundry and refining
industry. The appearance of a "Foreign Street" there indicated a close
relation to the foreign trade of iron products.

After having wonderful breakfast, we have been to slender west lake
scenic spot. There we visited scenic spots and historic places among
five pavilion bridge, twenty-four bridge, lotus pond and diaoyutai, also
had a boat riding around the beautiful lake. Later we enjoyed Guqing
performance with nice song and puppet dance. It is one of the ancient
Yangzhou culture.

After a while, we walked through the garden to find the place for
learning national studies with traditional clothes. The teacher arranged
the teaching method such a way that we went back to the ancient time
through time machine for a while. Sitting arrangements, book holding
style, reading style, furniture’s everything had ancient and traditional


After learning national studies, we had a very interesting experience of
learning and tasting famous “Yangzhou chao fan”. This food took my
personal interest as I found this item in different places across China
before. One of the professional chef showed us how to cook “Yangzhou
chao fan” and we were given to taste also. It was really delicious and
quite different than other chao fan. Knowing about traditional clay art
and puppet show were also an interesting experience. I believe everyone
should learn about this in early age. Clay art will make you creative,
artist and passionate. Puppet show will take you a colorful trip to
history. It was resting and lunch time after puppet show. We had our
lunch in Slender west lake restaurant. In lunch we’re served by the all
delicious and traditional food of Yangzhou.

There are also two ways of "selling".
First, sell raw materials for production. Foshan’s handicraft technology
was well developed, but the raw materials was very scarce and needed to
be imported from the outside, so a considerable part of them were from
abroad. Second, use Foshan's business platform to sell foreign goods to
mainland businessmen.

After lunch we went to Daming temple , Daming Temple was approved by the
State Council to be included in the sixth batch of national key cultural
relics protection units. It was named Daming due to build in the early
Southern Song Emperor Ming dynasty years (457-464 years). For more than
1,500 years, the name of the temple has changed a lot. For example, the
dynasty called "Hailing Temple" and "West Temple", and the end of the
Tang Dynasty called "Weighing". In the Qing Dynasty, because of the word
"Da Ming", it was once called "Hailing Temple", and Emperor
Qianlong's30-year-old emperor's handwritten title "敕法法净寺". In 一九七七,
Daming Temple was restored to its original name. In 二〇〇四, it was rated
as a national AAAA level scenic spot.

There we learned Chinese calligraphy and enjoyed great performance of
Buddhist monk. Monks showed the history of the place and Yangzhou
through their wonderful performances. We came back to Slender west lake
hotel after finishing the performance and we watched amazing Chinese tea
culture with nice silent environment. The room was so silent even we
could hear our breathing. Also had Q&A part after tea culture
performance. Teacher answered all questions what we asked about china
and tea. Everything together it was very wonderful experience. We went
to have dinner in Yangzhou Banquet after the tea culture program. I
think Yangzhou banquet is one of the best places to eat in Yangzhou.
Their service was so pleasant.


After dinner we enjoyed the best performance in Yangzhou called "Spring
River Flower Moonlight Night". It is the first masterpiece of Jiangnan
gardens created by Yangzhou. Hundreds of spectators experienced a
beautiful audio-visual journey across the "Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and
Qing Dynasties, and from the ancient times" it’s was an hour-long

To sum up, Foshan's "Foreigner Street" in
the Ming and Qing Dynasty was a place where foreign businessmen engaged
in commercial transactions, as well as a place for them to store goods
or even live in.

It is one of the best performances show I watched after romance show in
Hainan. After the show, we went back to hotel for having rest and
getting ready for next day.
