I didn’t write about it. Wendy and I went to Tongli for a night during Saturday – arrive at late night, and stayed in a very nice small hotel there, and left early in the morning (at 8:30 AM, we are already on the high way to Shanghai).
This is my second time (and Wendy’s first time) to Tongli. As I said in my last post, Tongli is a beauty at night. I highly recommend people to stay in Tongli for the night only, and it is so beautiful when there is nobody walking in the town and all shops close.
Zheng Fu Cao Tang
This time, we stayed in Zheng Fu Cao Tang 正福草堂, maybe the best hotel in the town. Last time I was there, I don’t have any money with me, so I stayed in the Fan Rong Hostel – 30 RMB per night. Last time, when I pasted by this hotel, I said, next time, I will stay here.
We stayed in a room for 220 RMB per night.
Here are some picture of this Chinese accident style hotel. I will stay here next time. They said you need to reserve at least one week in advance. (we were lucky that one person just cancelled the reservation, so we walked in and stayed).
I wonder why people don’t use this kind of Chinese traditional bed any more – the bed with a frame and curtain, and it seems like a room.
Below is the nice flower on curtain before the door.
The bed – red Chinese style.
The small area before the room, on the second floor.
Red Big Lanterns.
They have an ancient instrument outside the door.
This is the entrance of the hotel.
