Located in the center of the six ancient towns south of Yangtze River, 17 kilometers north of the city of Tongxiang, Wuzhen displays its history through its ancient stone bridges, stone pathways and delicate wood carvings.
Dong Zha and Xi Zha are the major spots of interest in Wuzhen. Dong Zha is smaller, but more traditional. Mao Dun, a renowned modern Chinese revolutionary writer, was born in Dong Zha, Wuzhen. His well-known work, The Lin's Shop, describes the life of Wuzhen.
Xi Zha, however, shows her capability to welcome the new era. With the traditional characteristics maintained, Xi Zha prides herself with several edgy theaters, holding the Wuzhen Theater Festival annually. Moreover, Xi Zha of Wuzhen is the permanent host place of the World Internet Conference since 2014.
