Jang Jae-won from South Korea has witnessed the rapid development of Shaoxing, East China's Zhejiang province, over the past two decades.

First coming to Shaoxing in 2002, Jang was impressed by the eastern Chinese city due to its abundant history and culture.

Jang still remembers what the city looked like 20 year ago - there was a lot of farmland. "Shaoxing is nothing like it was 20 year ago," said Jang, "The city looks new every three years."

Jang's textile export business now operates all around the world, with particular success in South America. He also enjoys hanging out with his friends.
