Hóngjiāng Old Town/China

Introducing Hóngjiāng Old Town

Located 55km south of Huáihuà, Hóngjiāng is a historic town situated at the confluence of the Yuan () and Wu (Wǔ Shuǐ;) rivers. Dating back to the Northern Song, much of the city is now modern and developed, but the remarkable Old Town (Hóngjiāng Gǔshāngchéng) recalls the town’s Qing-dynasty heyday as a prospering financial centre. The riverine journey by bus to Hóngjiāng alongside the Yuan River is gorgeous; look out for the magnificent white hilltop pagoda sprouting branches that faces you as you cross south over the river.
