unique pontoon
Nov 2015 • Couples
It is close to the wall for defence which was built in the Sung dynasty. Walking down the steps, I saw several boats selling sundried fish and other kinds of sundried stuff including shrimps, seaweeds and turtles. The boats are also homes of fishermen.

It was cloudy and quite windy that day. I saw Gan Jiang (River Gan) and felt its powerful running water.

The pontoon is upon boats and I saw a local fishing hiding himself in one of the boats and a few others fishing on the pontoon on a small portable folding chair. Locals use this pontoon to go to the other side of the city. I saw grandpa taking young kids home after school, housewives carrying vegetables and fruits, men walking with his bicycle from one side of the pontoon to the other side. This is something real for locals, not for tourists.

I suggest visitors spend adequate time there to walk from one end to the other end for a very special experience. You will be amazed by the intelligent design of the pontoon of ancient Chinese.

It is worth visiting the second time.
