Lu Xun Park

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
Lu Xun Park is located north of Suzhou Creek in the Hongkou district and once called Hongkou Park, this park was renamed in admiration of a major Chinese writer in the year 1988. Lu Xun from 1881 to 1936 is considered as the founder of modern Chinese writing and was a respected scholar and teacher who lived in Shanghai for the last 8 years of his life. Lu Xun's tomb is placed at the western end of the park. Hailed by the Communist Party as an advocate of Social Realism, the respect he earned from the CCP is marked by an inscription written by Mao and a tree flanking his tomb that was planted by Zhou Enlai. At the eastern end of the park is the Lu Xun Memorial, which has of late been distorted into a modern museum and has creative displays of samples of Lu's work and relics of his life.

Lu Xun Park is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in China. It is worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place will leave a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justify the proud cultural tradition of China.
