When touring Zhouzhuang, don’t miss the chance to taste one of its most highly reputed specialty dishes commonly known as "Wansanti," which is pig hock braised in soy sauce, a dish conceived of by Shen Wansan, a great businessman during the reign of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD) and visit his former residence. Shen was said to do silk and tea businesses, principally exporting tea, silk, and china while importing jewels, ivory, and spices, to make his fortune.
