Qibao Ancient Town

This place is called charming for a reason. Narrow alleyways, arched bridges, picturesque canals and a lot of street food. Old China atmosphere.

Qibao Ancient Town is easily accesible by subway and it´s a perfect place if you need to escape the overwhelming city. Try the chou doufu (stinky tofu), chicken feet and many other meals. Since there are two waterways, don´t leave this place without taking a stroll along the river. Qibao Temple and Pagoda were obviously rebuilt like the majority of historic buildings in China, but nevertheless, both places are worth a visit. There´s no much one can say about Qibao. It´s a place which needs to be experienced.

About terissmile

Teresa is the name. I was born in the Czech Republic, but since I always leave a piece of my heart in every place I had chance to live for a while, I feel more like a child of the world. It all started with moments which had a huge impact on my emotional level and on myself as well. Moments seemingly ordinary and insignificant from the common point of view, more specifically emotions written in human faces. I started chasing those candid ephemeral moments that are there only for a second and then they are gone and lost forever - be it loneliness, fear, anxiety, astonishment, joy, love, disappointment, loss... But it´s all real. Real emotions of real people. I do not follow any rules in particular, the only thing I insist on is honesty and genuineness that help me to add life to possibly every shot I take. Since minimalism is my way, I try to keep them as minimalist as possible. That is how I create my world. Take a look if you like. https://thestoryofmylifebyterismile.wordpress.com/
