On this tour, you will discover two picturesque Chinese villages, Suzhou and Zhouzhuang, each of them 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 admirable.
Suzhou was one of the few cities in China to escape the ravages of the Cultural Revolution, and its celebrated gardens miraculously surviving largely intact.
You will be visiting the Master of Nets Garden, Silk Embroidery Research Institute, Grand Canal, and a silk factory while in Suzhou.
After lunch, you will travel to Zhouzhuang. Famous 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.
