If you are lucky, it should not be raining other it will be very difficult to ride a boat. Beautiful view if you do so. Similar to Bangkok Floating Market.

Great place to visit and take the photo of the beautiful buildings in the village. The weather is lovely. I love to hear the local lady sing Chinese songs as she is steering. I paid her 10 RMB per each song. There are many shops that sells the souvenir and food. I could smell the Wansan pork hock everywhere as... More

If you are getting a bit worn out by the noise in Shanghai, this is the perfect gettaway. So beutiful! But still a lot of people! Lots of great little shops around the area so great to just walk around too.

If you travel to a water town ... you must experience the canal boats. The fee is RMB 40 and usually not negotiable. If you ask, the village women may let you steer. But, beware, there has been more than one foreigner who has ended up in the canal. It's not as easy as it looks.

I took a half day trip from Shanghai to see this lovely town. An informed guide adds to the experience. Go early and through the week to avoid the crowds. Driving time is 1.5 hours from Shanghai. The market stores are owned by the locals and prices are very reasonable.

I first visited Zhouzhuang twelve years ago back when it was just a small, sleepy, little town. I was teaching in nearby Kunshan and our school had organized to day trip for the foreign teachers on staff. Our school took us there in a school van. We had the ENTIRE town to ourselves! There were young women knitting booties and... More

Sure, some would call it cheesy... but then, so is the real Venice of today's Italy, with its hyper-commercialization. Zhouzhuang is a truly lovely "water town". Technically, it is a part of the greater Suzhou urban area. Some tours cover Suzhou only (which is of course lovely to visit, with its fabled gardens and canals). We were lucky enough to... More
