Full description
Start the day with pickup at your hotel. Then sit back and relax for 1.5 hours in the comfortable car while heading to the "Venice of the East" - Zhouzhuang Water Town. It is famous for its unique water system, Chinese styled bridges, and traditional buildings.  First, stop at an ancient theater where the locals used to enjoy the Kunming styled Opera, then walk over the famous Double Bridge to visit a 600-year-old Chinese mansion - Zhang Residence. The residence has more than 70 rooms and the Zhujing River flowing through the property. The next stop will be Shen Residence. The museum portrays Shen Watson and how he became a rich merchant. If you are hungry, your guide can help you find a local restaurant where you can try out the most authentic local food. Before heading back to Shanghai, enjoy some free time to explore or shop around by yourself. Book the optional Gondola ride to explore the canals of Zhouzhuang.
