Tour Details

Considered two of the most beautiful towns in China, Suzhou and Zhouzhuang are also two of China's most historic places to visit. Spending a relaxing day in these ancient cities, you will be surprised by how different life is in these towns.

Your professional guide will meet you at your Shanghai hotel, and you will be driven to the ancient town of Suzhou. Your first stop on this Suzhou tour is the Net Master Garden, also referred to as the Master of the Nets Garden. The Net Master Garden, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the quintessential Ming Dynasty garden. The garden, erected as a traditional Chinese feudalist garden, is meant to be a symbol of harmony and serenity, and its beauty never fails to astound visitors.

Next, you'll visit Suzhou's ancient city wall. You might be surprised by the irregular shape of this 2,500 year old structure. You will then continue your tour of Suzhou at Suzhou's Grand Canal. The Grand Canal, constructed in the 5th century BC, extends across much of China and is the longest canal in the world. The Suzhou section of the Grand Canal extends from Wuqi Bridge to Yazi Ba and is essential for freight transport.

After visiting the Grand Canal, you will continue your day trip from Shanghai with a tour of a Suzhou silk factory to discover the techniques involved in producing silk, which date back to the fourteenth century. You'll then enjoy a delicious Chinese-style lunch.

After lunch, you will head to Zhouzhuang, to begin your Zhouzhuang tour. Taking a gondola ride through Zhouzhuang and gliding along picturesque waterways, you'll be astounded by the beauty of this ancient city. As you cruise across the town on your tour of Zhouzhuang, you will gain insight into the everyday activities of the inhabitants of this quaint water village.

You will then make the scenic drive back to Shanghai, where you will be returned to your hotel. After exploring these unique cities, you will definitely have a new appreciation for China's rich culture and history.
