“A City A Story” photo weekly contest #24: Green 梦里江南,在苏州遇见你

If you’re following me on Wechat, you may know that I enjoy taking photos everywhere at the weekends. And today I’d like to share with you all my impressions of Suzhou, the city where I live to join the “A city story contest” hosted by @aaronli. To make some difference, I would be love to use six adjectives a list-point format to describe my city.

如果你在微信上关注我,你可能会知道我喜欢在周末到处采风。今天,我想与大家分享我对我居住的城市苏州的印象,此篇参加@aaronli主办的“城市故事比赛”。为了跟往期的文章有点区别,我用6个形容词来形容我的城市。

Ancient 古典

Suzhou is well-known for its small bridges and flowing waters, and it has a beautiful name: Riverside Town in Southern China. And according to the policy from the local government, our architecture could only be decorated with white walls and dark gray roof tiles to match the ancient travel city theme: old street, deep lane, romantic water bridge, like a painting of ink and wash.

苏州因其小桥流水而闻名,它有一个美丽的称呼:江南水乡。根据当地政府的政策,我们的建筑只能用白色的墙壁和深灰色的屋顶瓦片来装饰,以配合古老的旅游城市主题:古老的街道,深巷,浪漫的水桥,就像一幅水墨画。

Natural 自然
From the news of China-daily, now Suzhou is most commonly known as the top 5 new first-tier city for its fast developing economy, and of course its doubled house prices. The new apartment building next door has grown to 4,0000 Chinese Yuan per square meter. It is not acceptable to me. Isn’t it sad to say our living environment is much natural than many heavily polluted cities. We have a district that is mainly developing tourism industry, where the nature is perfectly protected.

根据中国日报的报道,目前苏州是第五大新一线城市,因为她近期发展迅速,当然近年来也是房价也是翻了两倍。我家马路对面的新楼盘已经增长到40000元/平米,简直不敢相信自己的眼睛。我们有一个主要发展旅游业的地区,那里的自然是完全受保护的。也就是说我们的生活环境比许多污染严重的城市好很多,是不是应该庆幸?

Crowded 拥挤
There are fewer traffic jams here compared to other cities like Nanjing, or Shanghai. But our city is full of people, too. Many mobile population from the countryside come here to seek for better job opportunities. You could see from the photos below that there are so many people outside for a lights, music and fireworks jubilee at the Jinji lake. Notice that the changing light is in green color.

与其他城市如南京或上海相比,这里的交通堵塞更少。但我们的这里也是到处都是人人人。许多流动人口来这里寻求更好的工作机会。你可以从下面的照片中看到,外面有很多人在金鸡湖畔的灯光,音乐和烟花禧年。请注意,绿光~~~

Immense 大
It is actually more than a economic center. It has the most beautiful lake: Taihu, and the peaceful islands: Dongshan and xishan, which are the origin of 曼陀山庄 written by Jin Yong. People here are isolated from the outside world. Now it is connected by three long long bridges. You need to drive half an hour to pass the three bridges.

实际上苏州不仅仅是一个经济中心,它拥有最美丽的湖泊:太湖和宁静的岛屿:东山和西山。是金庸笔下曼陀山庄的原型。过去,这里的人与外界隔绝,现在它由三条长长的桥跟外面的世界连接起来,开车半个小时才能通过三座桥。

Hospitable 好客

People here sometimes quite serious, but indeed we are very friendly. Maybe that is why our city have more and more mobile population. Many of us may seem unfriendly at first. The latter you will find they don’t necessarily mean that they are. They are just always busy, nervous, just shy, and scared to be cheated.

这里的人有时很拘谨,但我们的确很友善。也许这就是为什么我们的城市有更多的流动人口。起初,我们中许多人可能看起来不友好。后者你会发现他们并不一定表示他们是。他们总是忙碌,紧张,害羞,害怕被骗。

Modern 现代

Suzhou is a beautiful city offers an almost picture perfect balance between quaint and modern, refined and relaxed. That is to say, this city is perfectly combined with western cultures, though it is still trying hard to keep its traditional culture. Let’s take a restaurant named “雀蓝” for example, it is a Sichuan food restaurant, which combines the traditional spicy food cooking method with the western modern cooking ways. Most impressive is the peacock at the front door looks so real. As an added bonus, the surrounding is decorated in peacock theme, offering its dinner guests a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.

苏州是一个美丽的城市,提供古朴与现代,精致轻松的完美平衡。也就是说,这座城市与西方文化完美结合,尽管它仍在努力保留其传统文化。例如,我们以一家名为“雀蓝”的餐厅为例,它是一家四川美食餐厅,将传统辛辣食物烹饪方法与西方现代烹饪方式相结合。

So, that is all my unique views on Suzhou city. If you have something to comment, please be leave your words at the Comments area. Thanks for your time.
