Fodor's Review

As its name implies, Lu Xun Native Place is devoted to the literary giant and social critic Lu Xun. In this historic quarter, visit the Lu Xun Family Home (241 Luxun Zhong Lu, 0575–8513–3080; free entry), where the writer was born. His extended family lived around him in a series of courtyards, and today, you can tour this traditional Shaoxing home and see some beautiful antique furniture. To avoid the crowds, visit in the morning or early evenings. Down the street is the local school where Lu honed his writing skills, as well as a large square and a memorial that's dedicated to the famed writer.
