Trip Highlights - Wuzhen has kept many of its old traditions alive. In addition to the flower-drum opera, shadow-puppet shows, and temple fairs, Wuzhen also attracts visitors with its ancient art of making indigo-dyed printed calico. On both sides of a slabstone-paved street stand pubs, restaurants, pawnshops, weaving and dyeing establishments, and other businesses, all housed in wooden structures of brown. Rivers and creeks spanned with stone bridges in various designs flow through the town, and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal passes by. Old waterside houses and outside corridors can be found here and there. This is the ancient town of Wuzhen.

Attraction Description
Wuzhen Town, in Tongxiang City, Zhejiang Province, has stood on the riverbanks for nearly 2,000 years. In the past, indigo-dyed printed calico was used for curtains, scarves, and tablecloths in every household in the province. The raw material for dye printing comes from Eupatorium fortunei, a herb that turns indigo after being fermented and precipitated. To make transporting the cloth easier, the weaving workshops and dyeing workshops are usually on the same street, often only a few doors away from each other. At the dyeing workshop, the cloth is soaked in the dye and dried in the open air repeatedly to produce white flowers on a blue background.
