On the second day in Hangzhou, my friend and I got up early in the morning and visit the Maojiabu Village.
It was rainy on that day. We casual strolled in the misty rain, it was quiet, as if had been desolated. However, it is said that it was once a bustling place in the Song Dynasty. Now, it is one of the natural artificial wetland parks of the New West Lake.
Maojiabu is located in the west of the West Lake, it is recorded that most of the local residents are Mao families, who live by picking tea and raising silkworm, hence the name.
Maojiabu is a pure Jiangnan style village.
Maojiabu scenic areas rich in architectural forms, mostly built near the water, can be summarized into three types: the wooden thatched kiosks, wood pavilion and green tiles houses. Although in various form, the overall style is simple, natural, harmony and integrated with wetland landscape.
Maojiabu has the largest water area of the new lake area.
It is a shallow water lake, and creates a good environment for wetland landscape with its small changes in water depth, the bent shoreline waters, as well as the islands and the separated water space.
Although it is beautiful, there is few visitors coming here.
