Full description
At 08:00, your English-speaking guide will await you in your Shanghai hotel lobby while holding a sign with your name on it. Hop in the vehicle and embark on the 2-hour drive to Suzhou. Once you arrive, you will begin your tour with a visit to the incredible Humble Administrator's Garden. It is renowned as the largest classical garden in Suzhou and is typically referred to as on of the most impressive one in southern China. Head to the Liu Lingering Garden, yet another famously beautiful garden. Afterwards, take a much needed break for lunch at a local Chinese restaurant. Once you are satiated, go for a short visit at the Suzhou Silk Museum, where your guide will tell you the history of the traditional Chinese silks, including the techniques which are used to produce such a fine material. After your tour of the Silk Museum, begin your transport back to Shanghai for a 17:00 arrival. Your tour will end by dropping you off at your hotel.
