« The main purpose is to appreciate the beautiful scenery of Suzhou. I have never been to Zhouzhuang before, and yesterday I also saw another ancient town and its lantern festival. Therefore, the two major lantern festivals in Suzhou are very worth visiting, so we came here specifically, » said a visitor Wang.
This year’s Mid Autumn Lantern Festival opened in Zhouzhuang Fugui Park along with 28th China Zhouzhuang International Tourism Festival. The two major lighting areas of Zhouzhuang and Huiju Square in the development zone were lit together and there were three themed light areas of Fugui Garden, Ancient Town, and Yunhai Pagoda.
