Walk in Shanghai – Jinshanzui Fishing Village

In the last issue, we browsed the whole picture of Shanghai Jinshanzui Fishing Village from the air. This film shows the ground scene of the fishing village.

We walked from the Shanghai-Hangzhou highway into the old street. In the beginning of the film, we saw that the fishing village is only one step away from the sea. As a landmark building of a tourist attraction, it may be the watchtower. It was the commanding height of the former fishermen standing guard. Now the renovated exterior is used as the symbol of Jinshanzui Fishing Village.

Jinshanzui Old Street enters in a Y shape, and the ground is covered with antique stone slabs. The buildings on the street still retain a little shadow of the ancient village, but they are no longer historical buildings. The old street is not long, you can walk to the end in 5 minutes. The narrow street is lined with shops on both sides, which is no different from other tourist attractions.

Because it is not a holiday, there are not many tourists on the old street. A few villagers were enjoying the shade and staying at home. I noticed a male villager about 60 years old, sitting straddling a chair, wearing a large gold watch in his left hand and a string of Buddhist beads in his right, with a peaceful expression on his face. Looks like chatting with the people next to him, and the aunts and aunts in the village are also talking and laughing, they can see that the villagers.

At the end of the stroll in the fishing village, there was a sunset glow on the horizon, which turned from golden to red, dyeing the entire sky and the fishing village red.
