Description

"Dinghai's Old Town in east Zhejiang's Zhou Shan archipelago has thousands of years history. ... Since the late 1990's, under the influence of 'old town reform' trend, the local government shoved down Ming and Qing Dynasty and replaced them with department stores and matchbox style residence buildings. ... This historically famous cultural town, which was well kept through all the wars, is being destroyed little by little."
