Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village Day Tour

10 Hours

Price Breakdown:


Discover two picturesque Chinese towns, Suzhou and Zhouzhuang, each with its own unique characteristics. Founded around 600 BC, Suzhou is one of the oldest settlements in the Yangtze basin. Often referred to as the "Venice of the East," its neighborhoods and interconnected waterways are truly a masterpiece. Suzhou was one of the few cities in China to escape the ravages of the Cultural Revolution, its celebrated gardens miraculously surviving largely intact. Visit the Master of Nets Garden, Silk Embroidery Research Institute, Grand Canal, and a silk factory while in Suzhou.

After lunch, you'll travel to Zhouzhuang. Well known for its beautiful natural environment and simple architecture, this city has remained remarkably well-preserved for over 900 years. The majority of the town's residences were built during the Ming and Qing dynasties; nearly 100 classic courtyards and 60 carved-brick archways from those periods are still in use! Travel by boat through the city’s waterways and past classic Zhouzhuang dwellings before returning to Shanghai. Private tour option available! Immerse yourself in the history of Shanghai with the assistance of your own personal guide.

The tour was interesting, bringing you to locations that might be difficult to access otherwise. Unexpected shopping stop to be aware of, but I've seen worse things. The tour guide Frank was good, engaging with great language skill. The food was OK, but I suppose that depends on your appreciation of genuine Chinese cuisine. Would recommend to anyone wanting to see Suzhou and ZhouZhuang from Shanghai.

The tour took us to a lot of different places and sites within Suzhou and Zhouzhuang, and although we didn't get to spend a lot of time in either place, we saw things that we wanted to go back to and learned the background of some of the sites, which was great for understanding the symbolism behind the bridges in Zhouzhuang.
