Full description
Depart from your downtown Shanghai hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and begin the scenic journey to Suzhou, an ancient town famed for the beauty of its verdant gardens. Listen as your guide offers informative narration on the town hailed as the Venice of the east, and then disembark your coach to explore the Master of Nets Garden. Marvel at the town’s exquisite example of Ming Dynasty landscaping, and admire the harmonious style of Chinese garden construction.

Continue to the town’s ancient city wall, reputed to date back to 600 BC, and stroll parallel to the picturesque Grand Canal. Conclude your tour of Suzhou with a visit to its 14th century silk factory, then revitalize with a delicious Chinese lunch in a local restaurant. 

Afterwards, return to your vehicle to travel to Zhouzhuang, a quaint town thronged with winding waterways and charming structures. Admire the simple, perfectly preserved houses, and hear of how the town’s history dates back to the 11th century as you sail the canals in a Chinese sampan.  Relax during the journey back to your Shanghai hotel and bid farewell to your guide and group upon your return.
