Luzhi Town ,Located in Kunshan city about 25 kilometers east of Suzhou, which is an old but extremely beautiful water town. With a history of more than 1400 years, it compares favorably to Zhouzhuang Town. It was also known as Puli , an ancient name for this town. This river town was named after a Tang Dynasty recluse poet Lu Guimong who retired in this town. Lu Guimong had a pseudonym: Mr. Pu-li .
At that time, Puli consisted of two districts: Puli and Liuzhi. Liuzhi meant that there were six straight rivers in the town. In the Suzhou dialect, "liu" was pronounced as "lu". At the end of the Qing Dynasty, Puli was changed to Luzhi township of Yuanhe County.
Luzhi is famous for its beautiful waterways and ancient bridges, some of the bridges dated back to the Song Dynasty. A walk in the ancient town Luzhi is said to be a walk into history frozen in time, tranquil and serene.The natural beauty of the town is indescribable. Old stone bridges, limpid water, venerable maidenhair trees and old-style dwellings, as well as the traditional women's costumes, create an ideal 'civilized, rich, pastoral and harmonious' environment. In addition, Luzhi town is noted for several historical and cultural relics, such as Baosheng temple, the Wansheng Rice Company and the White Lotus Flower Temple of the North Song Dynasty.
Luzhi is one of the best preserved old towns in China, along with its old canals and streets. In 2003, the Chinese government published a list of "Ten Famous Chinese Historical Townships", with Luzhi featured on this list. In 2004, Luzhi was awarded a Township Preservation Award by UNESCO.
