ANCIENT RIVER TOWNS OF ZHUJIAJIAO The ancient towns of Zhujiajiao was built on top of the crisscrossing waterways that run from Dianshan Lake. The towns are filled with every type of bridge imaginable, from wood to stone to marble, in differing sizes and unique styles. The towns still have simple and elegant Ming and Qing dynasty (1368-1911) architecture that is quintessentially southern Chinese. Periodically, small wooden boats sail down the waterway, passing right under the eaves of the houses on its banks.
