Wuzhen.

Wuzhen.

People in Wuzhen live a simple life. Many of them breed silkworms and raise chrysanthemums, and they have mostly retained the tradition of buying fruit and vegetables from trade boats through the windows of their waterside houses. They benefit from an inherited harmony of man and nature and enjoy the pleasing living environment that comes from social progress. In May 1999, the local government invested 200 million yuan for maintaining and improving the town’s environment. The project was to be completed within five years, and the first phase, with an investment of 80 million yuan, was completed by the end of 2001. (shanghaifinance.com)
