A group of tourists from the US state of California visited Zhouzhuang in Jiangsu province on April 30, the second day of the May Day holiday.

According to the visitors, they first discovered Zhouzhuang online. Tantalized by photos of the town's beautiful traditional Chinese architecture, they decided to fly across the Pacific Ocean to see the famous Chinese water town for themselves.

Zhouzhuang's profound cultural heritage, well-preserved ancient houses and elegant riverside views had made their trip a rewarding one, the group confirmed happily.

One of the group members named Ivy even impressed reporters by expressing her great fondness for Zhouzhuang in Chinese.

"Zhouzhuang is very beautiful and I shall definitely come back again," she said.
