It‘s an interesting place with a lot of history but I see interesting places in my life. But when you stay longer in Shaoxing it‘s nice to see.

Quite touristy but worth visiting; an informative and charming place in the heart of old Shaoxing. Good place for purchasing souvenirs, too.

This is the mostly unrestored and authentic ancestral home of one of China's better known poets/essayists. It feels a bit unfinished sometimes as evidenced by just one or two lifelike mannequins in a room or two as an imagination-aide, there really is just some bare...More

I am the native of Shaoxing and I have visited there for over 10 times. I am glad to tell you something before your tour. First, don't believe some guys taking an album and persuading you to follow them. The whole sight is FREE, or...More

Well maintained family home/complex of the writer Lu Xun. At a cost of 0 RMB, the price was certainly right. Interesting to discover a writer that had so much insight into the coming changes in China - indeed, maybe even help generate those changes. Clearly,...More

Nicely preserved, free of entry charges. Nothing breath taking, but on non-crowded days, this offers an interesting glimpse into life of a period past. I like the gardens around the house better than the interiors though.

Given the proximity of the two homes that were in the family before and during Lu Xun's life, the area has been organized into a historical street with the sites on either side. There were two homes used by Lu Xun's family at various points,...More

It's a pity that so few foreigners will ever think of coming here. Lu Xun is largely unknown overseas (although rightly revered domestically as the most important figure in early 20th-century Chinese literature), and Shaoxing is a little off-the-beaten-path for most tourists (though only a...More

We went to Lu Xun's residence and was shocked by the quality of history and information it provided. It is definitely a place to go first if your visiting.

I didnt know anything about Lu Xun but I loved learning about him and his philosophy and writing. His home is beautiful and traditional and well worth the visit.
