Photo of the Week: Royal Road of the Southern Song Dynasty

New version of the Ancient Song Dynasty Road. There is an archaeological section halfway up the street that allows you to see the original road.

I have shown some photos over the last two Sundays of Shanghai and XiTang both of which I visited prior to returning to Australia this Summer. Before I left however, my friend (Mike Zhang from Timken in Chengdu) and I traveled to Hangzhou. Next week I will provide some photos of the lake but today's photos are of the street in which Mike booked our hotel. It is the royal road of the Southern Song Dynasty.

This street is full of curiosities for the foreign visitor. The views, the shopping, the street eateries and markets. So much to see. I hope that during the rest of my vacation time I will be able to write about my trips.  For now, just a few photographs to get you curious.

Another view of the Road. This road is quite long and has lots of side streets for purchasing jewelry and other things. Lots of hotels too.

The Sluice gate is still there and provides a stream of water to add to the character of the new street

Lots of strange or exotic building

View from the Pedestrian Bridge near the railway station end
