Private Day Tour to Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village including Humble Administrator's Garden from Shanghai

Select Date and Travelers

    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Humble Administrator's Garden, No.178 Northeast Road, Pingjiang District, Suzhou 215001 China

    Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Shanghai city centre, and your driver will transfer you for almost 2 hours to Suzhou.


    Suzhou is also called the Venice of the East and China’s garden city. It is renown for its waterside architecture, with many areas still preserving the network of canals and waterways that used to crisscross the city. However, Suzhou’s greatest claim to fame, more so than its canals, is its classical gardens. These splendid gardens date back to the Ming dynasty and have since been regarded as paragons of Chinese classical garden design.


    During this tour you will visit the Humble Administrator’s Garden, the largest and most well known of Suzhou’s famous gardens. Its unique design, ethereal beauty, and enduring cultural significance have seen it proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


    Then you will follow your guide to visit the Silk factory to see the process of making silk products and you will have a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch in a local restaurant.


    Duration: 5 hours

    Stop At: Zhouzhuang Water Town, Qing Ping Shanghai Highway, Kunshan 215300 China

    The tour will continue visiting Zhouzhuang Water Town, where you will board a Chinese-style gondola to cruise the town's beautiful waterways. Zhouzhuang's simple, well-preserved architecture dates back more than 900 years. The majority of residences were built in the Ming and Qing dynasties, and nearly 100 classic courtyards and 60 carved-brick archways are still in use. In this water village, locals live their life on the waterways, continuing to carry out everyday activities on the water, from washing clothes to shopping from vendors in boats.


    After this, you will be transferred back to your hotel at Shanghai city centre

    Duration: 3 hours
