If Wuzhen in the day gives you the feeling of the original Jiangnan water town, then Wuzhen at night will bring you a different style. People often say that “staying in Wuzhen in waterside Jiangnan”, which explains the beautiful night scenery of Wuzhen from one side. The Dongzha Scenic Area also has a night view, but its size and momentum are obviously inferior compared to the Xizha.
At night, the time-controlled floodlights are illuminated, and the entire Xizha is crystal clear. Under the ancient trees, in the arches of the bridges, in the waters of the stone pavilions, on the steps of the rivers, various warm and cold colors of dots, blocks and linear lights reflect each other; towering horse head walls, Guanyin pockets, undulating old building ridgelines, the pavilion's cornices, and even the rows of the tiled surface are outlined by the lights; there are also the lanterns of the homestay and the restaurant; the lights in the doorway of the aboriginal house and the curtains leak out the warmth. The entire Xizha is like a richly decorated jade palace, which makes people feel amazed at where they are.
Hiring a boat perhaps is the most comfortable way to travel to the Xizha at night. The most concentrated place in the Xizha lighting night scene is the Xishi River. When boating along the Xishi River, it seems that the boat floating in a light river. The water in the river shines, and the paddles are lightly shaken, which seems to break a pool of broken silver. Crossing through a stone bridge seems to be a shuttle in time and space tunnels. If you like, you can stop the boat and read the pair of long-distance bridges, enjoying the pieces of history and culture in the night. Or you can tell the boatman to pull into the shore to taste a glass of water in the wind. Of course, you can also freely linger in the faint streets. You don't have to worry about that the bright and white streets will destroy your feelings of solitude. In addition to a few street lamps, the old streets and alleys illuminate the ancient carved windows, gates and wind-fire walls. Only when you turn out from the street and walk on the stone bridge, will you find a world of with silvery light on the ground
The beauty of Xizha's night is extraordinary. No matter from the exquisite conception or the grandeur of the imposing manner, it is rare in the domestic scenic spots, and it is a beautiful sight that tourists should not miss.Keyword:Activities
