Lu Xun's Former Residence (鲁迅故里)

Been restored to its original state and attracts visitors from all around China. Here you'll get to see the traditional Zhejiang garden compound where Lu Xun spent his childhood and early youth. Lu Xun (1881-1936) was born in Shaoxing and has become an intrinsic part of the town's allure. You can explore the writer's old rooms, gaze at the traditional interior and stroll around his garden.

Sanwei Study (三味书屋)

After visiting Lu Xun's former home, you'll get the chance to see where he got his education. The small traditional school where Lu Xun was taught as a boy. It was here where Lu Xun, a diligent and reflective learner, was educated in the field of basic Chinese literature.

Baicao Garden (百草园)

Originally a deserted vegetable plot shared by residents of New Taimen -a house complex for members of the Zhou clan. The residents used to refer to the garden as the "Garden of a Hundred Plants." However, in reality it was nothing more than a deserted plot filled with weeds. Lu Xun and his friends, through the power of imagination and will, transformed it into a playground where they had great fun.

Shen Garden (沈园)

Song Dynasty poet, Lu You, penned a famous poem on the walls of Shen Garden expressing his love for Tang Wan, his ex-wife whom his mother forced him to divorce. Beyond a site of tragic lost love, the classical garden is a haven of lotus ponds, winding pathways and rockeries.

Orchard Pavilion (兰亭)

You'll spend the rest of the afternoon learning about the culture of Chinese calligraphy made famous by Wang Xizhi, author of a well-known essay written at the Orchard Pavilion (Lan Tin). A calligraphy festival is held here annually on the third day of the third lunar month, and the site is popular among people who practice calligraphy.
