That temple has been made based on the story of Xishi that was told to be one of the most beatiful woman of that time. It is a very nice tale and very nice and interesting place to be seen. Lot of Chinese story and tradition and culture there.

Pearl Market of Zhuji

Reviewed By CharlotteRoz2014 - Amstelveen, The Netherlands

To get to Zhuji take the bullet train from Shanghai Hongqiao central railway station,
The best way to get tickets is to let the reception of your hotel arrange traintickets, for a small fee of 30 RMB they deliver the ticket to your hotel.there are several high speed trains during the day. I went in July, regretfully it is the raining season there (May-Nov).
The bullet trains are spotless and very punctional, on the ticket it says which number of trainwagon and which seat, so that is easy to find. However, when you get out of the station that's where it gets complicated. taxi drivers are lining up to take you in their car, private or not, meter or not, make sure you have the address of your hotel in Chinese as well or you will be lost. I did not see much of Zhuji because of the rain, I asked a lot of people where the pearl market was, nobody knew! So be aware the pearl market is in a small city about half an hour from Zhuji city it is called: Shan Xia Hu. A taxi to there costs Rmb 80. This in my opinion is the best place to buy pearls, prices are excellent, if you are a retailer and selling to European taste. There are really good pearls as well but prices are accordingly. There are also shops there selling silver and gold locks, and jewlery necessities when making your own or they do it for you as well. They open at 7 a.m. I reached around 10.00 and the place was empty of customers. Regretfully it rained and I was not in the mood to look around at shops surrounding this pearl market, so I will keep this for next time. Since the town is very quiet it was hard to find a taxi on the way back so I ended up with a 'private' taxi, but nothing wrong with that either.

Sizhai Village

Reviewed By catpix - New York

Sizhai Village is only 35 km from Zhuji, but it's a world away from the bustle of urban life. No high rises, traffic jams or polluted air—you’ll find only lush landscapes, fresh air, agricultural fields, and a unique experience of life in the Chinese countryside. The “Si” clan has lived in this region for more than a millennia; the "Si" name goes back even further to ~240 AD when Emperor Sun Quan bestowed the name on a family whose sons had shown extraordinary filial piety.
Original structures-- some dating back to the 1800s-- include a schoolhouse; ancestral shrine; study area previously used by scholars; a small “Western-styled” home (where noted author Zhang Ai-ling once stayed!); and several large multi-unit buildings that still house many generations of the “Si” clan. The largest, known as “Qian Zhu Wu,” has 1,000 pillars and is exceptional for its size and architecture (see entry below). There is much history here, and the local residents are friendly and welcoming. Some buildings have educational displays in Chinese (a limited number are in English).
While many of China’s cultural treasures have become far too commercialized, Sizhai Village is a hidden gem and worth finding your way to!... as you wander around this small community, you have the opportunity to experience the rhythms of rural life, seemingly unchanged for several generations but full of history and interesting stories. Enjoy an authentic “Si” village experience in Zhejiang’s beautiful countryside—while it still exists!
To visit, find the bus to Sizhai Village (labeled “斯宅”) leaving from Zhuji's main bus terminal. It leaves every ½ hr and takes ~1 hr; buy a ticket after boarding (7RMB). If traveling from Hangzhou, take a high-speed train to Zhuji train station, then local bus to the bus terminal.

斗岩在诸暨不算有名的景点,不过诸暨最有名的“五泄”和“西施故里”早已去过,所以这次想要找个不是热门的景点看看。斗岩位于诸暨市西南部,G60沪昆高速牌头镇王家宅。因为不会开车,所以我们是坐公交车去的,其实也还方便,从诸暨市内乘开往牌头、安华、同山、郑家坞车就可以直达景区。不过从公交车站走到景区门口还是有点路的,虽然是一条笔直的大道,一眼可以望到,但是在大夏天里走上一回还真有点累呢,好在天气晴朗,天上白云朵朵,让人心情舒畅,走这段路也不觉得怎么难熬了。斗岩又名“陡岩”,听名字即可得知这里的山岩非常陡峭,据说斗岩在2001年7月被中国登山协会定为“国家登山队攀岩训练基地”。斗岩属丹霞地质地貌景区,与我们普通所见的山还是挺不一样的。斗岩的门票为30元,儿童半价。斗岩景区有点将台、斗岩大佛、金井龙潭、仙洞府、千步云梯、白云禅院、龙王殿、千佛聚首等大小景点五十多处。明开国皇帝朱元璋曾于1365年在此乘大雾发动过“新州大战”,大败张士诚主力,奠定了明天下的建国基础,点将台应该就是朱元璋集合将士之所。山上的生态环境很好,我们看到了各种美丽的蝴蝶,还有大大小小的爬山虎,有一个竟然有着碧蓝碧蓝的尾巴,可惜还没等我掏出手机为它们留影一张,它们就溜走了。整座山上游客很少,非常清静,是进行有氧锻炼的好去处。斗岩顶上有一方池水,里面有很多鱼,想是当地居民及游客放生的地方。整个景点玩了大约两个半小时,下得山来看到这蓝天白云的美景,更觉得神清气爽。

Qianzhu Room

Reviewed By catpix - New York

If you visit Sizhai Village, you can't miss Qianzhu Wu, literally meaning “Home of a Thousand Pillars.” In the 1840s, a wealthy merchant of the Si clan built this apartment-style complex for his expanding family… since then, more than 7 generations of this family have continuously lived there. While these large structures share elements of traditional Chinese courtyard-style homes, the arrangement of these 'complexes'-- individual units built to house future descendants' families-- may be fairly unique from that period in China.
When you enter the large main doors of the front entryway (there’s a total of 5 doors), you’ll feel as if you’re stepping back in time… in courtyards running along all sides of the building, you’ll see residents engaging in daily activities such as drying foods, working on home projects, preparing meals with local produce, etc. Also, there are many architectural details worth seeing—intricate wood carvings on windows and doors, stone carvings of “100 horses,” large central courtyards for celebrations, etc. We had a memorable visit and recommend stopping by this fascinating site!... a genuine Chinese village experience in an unusual 19th-century building complex.

就是一大片湿地建了个公园,主要通过游船穿梭,有一个个小岛,分别种有各种不同季节开放的花木,门票价格偏高,外地人特意过来可能会失望。
