We went to Lu Xun's residence and was shocked by the quality of history and information it provided. It is definitely a place to go first if your visiting.

I didnt know anything about Lu Xun but I loved learning about him and his philosophy and writing. His home is beautiful and traditional and well worth the visit.

Nice play to visit without not so many people. Just 1.5H from Shanghai by train. I recommend this place for a relaxing weekend .
