Lake Trip Part II: Qiandeng

The city of Qiandeng "The city of a thousand lanterns" is a quaint little water village. It has kept its traditional style of architecture and contains a lantern museum which display its centuries-old lantern culture. It's also the hometown of Gu Yanwu, a patriotic thinker of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), and one of early homes of the Kunqu Opera. You can take a cruise on the river, walk around the numerous museums and galleries, or take a stroll around the gardens enjoying the marvelous scenery.
Here are some pictures I took:
