Boarded a small boat for a trip along the ancient narrow canal known for its buildings and bridges. We passed by more modern and ancient Chinese architectural building. The ancient ones were more interesting with people washing their clothes, bathing with a busy shopping street...More
It is called Venice of the East. Boat ride cruising on the grand canal, passing by Chinese architectures. Where the boat ride ends, there is shopping street selling souvenir. Popular tourist attraction spot.

The closest Metro station is "Leqiao" on Line 1. Line 4 will be closer but it is not finished yet. It is about 3km walk due south on Renmin Lu. The wharf is on the left just before you cross the canal. The price was about 300Rmb from the hotel, might be cheaper at the wharf. I was not impressed with the ride because it was cold, the windows were closed, and you could not see anything. I would recommend a nice walk along the canal at Panmen or Xiagman Gate. Enjoy your travels.
