Fuchun Boat Rooms

Fuchun Boat Rooms are a touring option should you be travelling to China one of these days, especially if you’re going anywhere near the Hangzhou area. These houses aim to recover the spirit of the Chinese river people that lived on these parts for hundreds of years, starting in the early Ming dynasty and up to the middle of the Qing one. These houses were created by a team of architects from the prestigious China Academy of Art, they’re pretty much wooden cabins that are built on a steel structure that ensures an overwater view and inspire a boat-life spirit but because they’re solidly fixed on to the ground you get no motion sickness, which may happen on a real boat-house. Its pure oriental design will surely provide a unique ambiance and create interesting memories of your stay making it all the more special.
