Today, Nanxun has kept its scenic views of a water town with ancient houses well preserved while developing an atmosphere of modern times with high-rises standing here and there. The streets run along the rivers criss-crossing each other. The integral network of streets and rivers presents a unique view like that of Venice. The town is also rich in beauty spots and places of historical interest, including Jiayetang Library---one of the four ancient libraries in Zhejiang, the Lesser Lotus Villa--- a famous private garden in south China, and over 30 bridges of the Song Dynasty (960-1279). In addition, there are beauty spots like the Stone Pagoda in Shiyuan Garden, the waterside pavilion in Yinyuan Garden, the Eagle-shaped Stone in the former residence of Zhang Junheng, the famous ancient 100-room house and the former residence of Zhang Qingjiang named "Respect for Morality Hall".
