I visited Lan’xi, a small city in western part of Zhejiang Province during the holiday. Lan’xi is famous for “Zhu Ge Cun”, cement plants, Lan Jiang, and a lot agricultural produce. In the old days Lan’xi proudly claimed it as “little Shanghai”, but these days it’s lagging behind neigbouring counties Yi Wu and Pu Jiang on the economy development. It reminds me of Cai Qiao, my maternal grand parents’ hometown, and it was “little Ningbo” when I was little.
Anyway, I saw both the urban and rural sides of the Lan’xi, here are some pictures:
Lan Jiang, the river
Commerical district, notice the coffee place? Chinese are increasingly addictive to it. A good thing for Starbucks (SBUX).
This little creek reminds me of similar creek in my hometown, the water is freezing cold 🙂
