People make traditional Chinese-style hairpins during the weekend market at the tourism resort complex operated by Blossom House in Zhujiajiao water town.
Crafting traditional Chinese brushes
Handcrafting tuanshan (circular fans)
A tourism resort project in Zhujiajiao ancient town, an 4A tourist attraction in Qingpu District, went into operation over the weekend.
The complex features minsu (a Chinese version of B&B) with private gardens, MICE venues, catering, hotsprings and weekend markets.
Its design draws inspiration from depictions of the flourishing scenes of the Zhujiajiao market in the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368), and the prosperous views of the water town as a granary distribution center at that time.
The unique structure of local gucang used to store grain in ancient times was introduced into the design of the project.
Zhongnan Group, a leading construction and engineering company which developed the project, and Blossom House, a high-end resort brand of Huazhu Group, one of China's biggest multi-brand hotel chain management groups, inked a cooperation agreement over the weekend in Zhujiajiao to promote industry upgrades and bring about a leisure lifestyle vacation experience to tourists.
A weekend market inviting tourists to handcraft sachets, tuanshan (circular fans), traditional Chinese-style hairpins, and Chinese brushes was held at the complex in Zhujiajiao over the weekend. The craftsmenship of ancient water towns in the Yangtze River Delta region was displayed.
Tea, souvenir and snacks with Jiangnan (regions south of the Yangtze River) flavor are also featured at the market, which will be held regularly.
