When Shaoxing is mentioned, “It’s Lu Xun’s hometown” usually comes to mind first.

Lu Xun, one of the notable residents of Shaoxing, was a renowned Chinese writer and literacy critic in the 20th century.

Some of his essays and writings have been part of the primary school and middle school compulsory curriculum in China.

(Just in case that someone might not know who Lu Xun was and where he came from;-)

▪️How to get there
From Hangzhou: Ride Hangzhou Metro Line 5 to its final stop, Guniang Qiao station, and transfer to Shaoxing Metro Line 1. Smooth transition - so convenient!

▪️Lu Xun’s Native Place
Approx. 500 meters from the metro station is Lu Xun’s Native Place.

In addition to Lu Xun’s childhood residence and a memorial hall dedicated to him, this pedestrian-oriented district contains numerous boutiques, art galleries, diners, jewellery stores, and a Starbucks:)

The same sort of undistinguished features you’ll find in every tourist spot - once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all;-)

Fairly well preserved Old Town buildings, structures, waterway, and area. Likely looks much as it did hundreds of years ago.

I went to Luxun's hometown with my classmates on a schooltrip.It's in the south of China so although it was in November when I visited,I didn't feel really cold.You just need to wear a long-sleeved jacket and take an umbrella with you because it often rains.

We stayed in the Luxun's memorial hall for about thirty minutes,you can see many sentences and words written by Luxun and the summary of his life.I took a memorable photo of the bust of Luxun and the calligraphy "Soul of the nation" behind the bust.I liked this photo because the calligraphy behind the bust was made of gold stamping and it was really shiny under the light,so does the bust,although the bust was made pf plaster,we could still feel the greatness of Luxun.

If you are a student and you will go there as a schooltrip,you can have a lesson in Three-Flaudio-videoor Study,where Luxun has studied.The lesson was interesting because I learnt more about the junior of Luxun.

In a word,it was great and I hope to go there once more someday!

Luxun was a short story and poet writer/ editor, literary critics, he also translated lots of foreign works. If you love modern Chinese literature, you will totally enjoy this place.
His work reflected to life and the social issues. There are displays of Luxun’s works and details of his family, his journey of life.

While in Shaoxing, we visited a Lu Xun native place. It is a large complex of historical buildings with LuXun memorial, gardens, and house where LuXun lived. Admission is free, with photo ID provided.

Luxun was a famous story writer. Luxun Hometown (Luxun Native Place) offers a glimpse into the ancient residence and architecture. Good for anyone with an interest in Chinese history and literature.

Luxun's hometown was a very nice place to visit. Very nice place to take pictures and stroll around. It is a clean area and has enough to see without being too overwhelmed. Look for the huangjiu or pijiu wine icecream or yogurt, it's very yummy! Lots of nice shops along the way.

This is a fun way to learn about what life was like for a hero of Shaoxing during his lifetime. You can visit this gem while walking around Shaoxing in an hour or less. For us as tourists, we also enjoyed shopping all around Luxann's home. Very enjoyable and a good way to spend an afternoon.

We have walked along the streets here and looked at some street vendors' stalls. My friend got a fan here for 8 kuai which is quite cheap and also very beautiful. The rest of the street is cute but there was nothing special to buy. Plus the smell of the stinky tofu was really disturbing.
Btw: be careful by dogs. If they chase you try to go inside the next shop you come across.
