Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village Day Trip from Shanghai

401 reviews
The water village of Zhouzhuang can be tricky to reach independently—unless, of course, you speak Chinese. Take life easy on this convenient day tour that includes not only Zhouzhuang but the historic center of Suzhou, a canal city famous for silk. In addition to a gondola ride and a silk factory tour, visit the UNESCO-listed Master-of-Nets Garden and savor a Chinese lunch. Hotel pickup makes for a hassle-free trip.

This museum is a very interesting intro to the gardens. It contains many interesting pictures, wonderful artefacts, and great models detailing the gardens. It is well worth the visit and its a great intro to the wonderful gardens of Suzhou.

Lovely museum. You should come here before you want to visit actual gardens. You have to buy ticket to visit .

We went to this museum After we had visited the Humble Administrator's Garden, as did not realise that it was a museum on it's own, until we were exiting the HA gardens. I'd recommend entering this museum first if possible, as it gives you a concise introduction to gardens in general, and then a more detailed introduction to the Suzhou gardens. As others have mentioned, it may also help you decide on whether you want to visit the actual gardens. Note that there's a difference between this Suzhou GARDEN Museum and another museum just next door called the Suzhou Museum. The Suzhou Garden museum is located between the Suzhou Museum and the HA gardens. Also, go on a weekday if possible. We had visited on a Sunday, and it was packed.

This is a great museum to prepare your visit to actual classical gardens of Suzhou. There are docents who do free guided tours at certain times of the day. The museum did a great job dissecting key components of Suzhou's classical gardens so you know what to look for when you actually visit one.

This museum is the last building designed by Pei. The collection is small and they have several national treasures, the Pearl tower and the exquisite celadon lotus bowl. We stood in line outside for time time with everyone but then an administrator pulled us out of line and escorted us into the museum. Like all of our experiences so far in China we are treated well. We have met no other Americans on this trip.
