This is the premier attraction of the city and is, in fact, a decent tourist destination. Lu Xun Native Place (as it's often translated) is actually an entire area -- a long, stone, pedestrian street down the center lane, with smaller lanes, courtyards, and historical...More

While in Shaoxing, we visited a Lu Xun native place. It is a large complex of historical buildings with LuXun memorial, gardens, and house where LuXun lived. Admission is free, with photo ID provided.

It‘s an interesting place with a lot of history but I see interesting places in my life. But when you stay longer in Shaoxing it‘s nice to see.

Well maintained family home/complex of the writer Lu Xun. At a cost of 0 RMB, the price was certainly right. Interesting to discover a writer that had so much insight into the coming changes in China - indeed, maybe even help generate those changes. Clearly,...More
