Wuzhen in Zhejian province is an historic scenic water town that lies within the triangle formed by Hangzhou, Suzhou and Shanghai.

There are many towns like Wuzhen but what makes it the best is the unbelievable amalgamation of tech savviness and traditional China. The entire town is connected to Wi-Fi available to everyone.

The infrastructure is continuously upgraded and even new buildings are constructed so that they evoke old Chinese structures.

The youth here are so proud of their clean, well managed and beautiful town. Every corner, street and building has a joyful surprise for a tourist. Technology has played an important role in the daily lives of Wuzhen residents but they have kept their traditions and culture.

Wherever I went all the people greeted me and helped me in understanding their culture and way of life, guided me through their proud history and showed great hope for their town. People here are so friendly that they go out of their way to guide you and help you.
