Explore the beauty of Jiangsu and immerse yourself in its beautiful way of life. In this late summer, with clear skies and gentle breezes, the program 'Travel Around Jiangsu,' on Jiangsu Public News Channel, takes us to the ancient town of Lili in the Jiangnan water village. We also get to visit the Six Arts Museum.
'Travel Around Jiangsu' is a multimedia cultural and travel program jointly produced by the Jiangsu Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism and the Jiangsu Provincial Radio and Television Station. The program delves deep into the cultural pulse, provides trendy experiences in terms of dining, accommodations, sightseeing, and shopping, and leads viewers to discover the unprecedented fun of Jiangsu.
Lili Ancient Town is located in Wujiang, a water town in the southern part of Jiangnan, near Suzhou. It was established during the Southern Song Dynasty and was originally known as Lihua Village. With a history of nearly nine centuries, it is hailed as the 'Pearl of Water Towns' and is rich in historical and cultural heritage. In addition to the exquisite intangible cultural heritage found throughout the town, Lili Ancient Town offers a wide variety of delicious local cuisine specialties that are definitely worth tasting.
After exploring Lili Ancient Town, the final stop is the Six Arts Museum, located adjacent to the ancient town. Founded by Mr. Mitchell Dudek, an international lawyer and collector from the United States, the museum showcases over 40,000 traditional Chinese folk artifacts. With a comprehensive collection that bridges the past and present, and spans both Eastern and Western cultures.
Accompanied by the program crew, host Sun Qian and Assistant Curator (Allen) Zhangyong CHEN from the Six Arts Museum walk together within the museum's exhibition halls. Not only do they experience the uniqueness of the museum compared to others, but they also have the opportunity to physically touch many of the displayed artifacts. Being in the midst of it all, they can also feel the pleasure of the multi-sensory experience.
This journey of intangible cultural heritage, 'Travel Around Jiangsu' takes you on a fascinating exploration of Lili Ancient Town and Six Arts Museum, where everyone is looking forward to the arrival of you and your family and friends!
