The intangible heritage as the lifestyle in Suzhou

This is my third time to come to Suzhou. But there are also many surprises during this journey, the Suzhou Railway Station, bus stop, the streetlights, the boats, and the life scene next the wells and so on. Here are some photos of the vivid morning life scene in this old town:


You can find these unique life scenes everywhere in the morning. The wells are not just places for getting the water, but the communication spaces in the old town. The traditional lifestyle here is not a part of the tourism business with the aim of economic development, but a part of local culture. But it is impossible to deny the requirements of modern life. As a result, I find some symbiotic urban spaces of modern and the traditional lifestyle in Suzhou.
