Figure 8 Bridge (Bāzíqiáo)

Figure 8 Bridge (Bāzíqiáo) Review

In a city of bridges, the Figure 8 is the city's finest and best known. Its long, sloping sides rise to a flat crest that looks like the character for eight, an auspicious number. The bridge is over 800 years old, and is draped with a thick beard of ivy and vines. It sits in a quiet area of old stone houses with canal-side terraces where people wash clothes and chat with neighbors.
