看江阴

2019-09-16

  江阴素有“江尾海头”之称,春秋时期江与海相接就在这里。 清朝文学家赵翼就留有诗句“暨阳城北皆洪流,尚是江尾已海头”。浩浩长江万里奔啸而来,至下游,江面陡然开阔,冲积形成美丽富饶的长江三角洲。北倚长江、南濒太湖,古运河穿城而过,江阴就像一颗璀璨的明珠镶嵌在长江三角洲上。 

  

  江阴是个好地方,宜居宜业宜商宜游。这里年平圴气温16℃左右,年降雨量1100毫米左右,四季分明,气候宜人。金鱼形状的版图,总面积987平方公里,常住人口165万人;辖有10个镇、7个街道办事处、1个国家级高新区、2个省级经济开发区。拥有国家4A级旅游区2个,星级旅游酒店10家,其中五星级3家,四星级2家。2018年全市共接待游客2554.75万人次。

 

  江阴是个好地方,所有的风物会说话。1500年前,南朝梁代昭明太子萧统种下了一颗树,传颂着一段凄美情缘,成为纬度最北的海内奇木——千年红豆树。唐代,异僧道松所书狂草旷世奇碑《心经碑》,远看似画,近看是书,气势磅礴,艺术精妙,成为中国现存古代碑刻之最。400多年前,徐霞客从这里出发,写下了“世间真文字,大文字,奇文字”的著作《徐霞客游记》,成为天下行者的坐标。近现代,刘半农、刘天华、刘北茂,江阴一家兄弟三人一起走进中国文化史的典章,成为追求进步、科学求实,弘扬和发展民族文化的先驱。


  江阴是个好地方,天蓝水碧、城绿村美。这里有被誉为“天下第一村”的华西村;这里有古典情怀与现代活力交汇,马蹄声哒哒、美轮美奂的海澜飞马水城;这里有粉墙黛瓦、窄巷小弄、小桥流水,吴韵楚风之韵犹在的

古镇老街……


  PICTURESQUE VIEWS OF JIANGYIN


  Jiangyin is known as "the tail of the river and the head of the sea (Jiangwei Haitou)”. It was the confluence of the rivers and the sea during the Spring and Autumn Period. Zhao Yi, a litterateur in the Qing Dynasty once wrote in the poem "There are numerous rivers in the north of Jiyang City, where the rivers meet the sea." The vast Yangtze River rushes here to the lower reach, and the river surface suddenly opens up, siltation of the alluvial soil more and more, forming the beautiful and rich Yangtze River Delta. With the Yangtze River in the north, the Taihu Lake in the south, and the ancient canal passing through in the middle, Jiangyin is like a bright pearl embedded in the Yangtze River Delta.

  Jiangyin is a good place for living, working, doing business and traveling. The  annual  average  temperature here is 16°C, and the annual rainfall is about 1,100 mm. The four seasons are distinct and the climate is pleasant. The territory of the land is like the shape of a small goldfish.It has a total area of 987 square kilometers and a resident population of 1.65 million. 10 towns, 7 sub-district offices, 1 national high-tech zone and 2 provincial economic development zones are under its jurisdiction. It has 2 national 4A-level tourist areas and 10 star-rated tourist hotels, including 3 five-star hotels and 2 four-star hotels. In 2018, Jiangyin received a total of 25.547 million visits.

  Jiangyin is a good place, everything here can talk. The 1,000-year-old red-bean tree planted by Xiao Tong, the Price Zhaoming of Liang Dynasty of Southern Dynasties, tells a sad but beautiful love story, and has become a magic of this kind of tree growing at the northernmost latitude. The "Heart Sutra Tablet", a masterpiece written by Daosong, a foreign monk in the Tang Dynasty,  looks like a painting at a distance, but calligraphy from nearby. It is magnificent and exquisite in art, and has become the most extant ancient inscriptions in China. 400 years ago, Xu Xiake started his travel from here and wrote his book "Xu Xiake's Travel Notes", a work of "True, Great and Magic Words", which has become the coordinates of travelers around the world. In modern times, Liu Bannong, Liu Tianhua, and Liu Beimao, the three brothers from Jiangyin, entered the chapter of Chinese cultural history together and became pioneers in pursuing progress, science, truth, and promoting and developing national culture.

  Jiangyin is a good place, with blue sky, green water, and beautiful urban and rural sceneries. There is Huaxi Village, which is known as the “No. 1 village  on earth”. There is the splendid Water City of Hailanfeima, a combination of classical feelings and modern vitality, where you can hear the clip-clop of horses. There are heritage towns where you can see red walls and green tiles, narrow alleys,  small bridges over the flowing streams, feeling the Wu-Chu culture and customs......
