Itinerary

In the morning, your guide and driver will pick you up from your downtown hotel drive about 1.5 hours to the charming Xitang Water Town. 

Xitang is a time-honored water town featuring its many archaic stone bridges, narrow lanes and corridors with thousands of years of history lying in the backyard of Shanghai. As a leisure getaway, the sleepy town is endowed with well-preserved folk houses of white walls and black tiles, which are linked by crisscrossing water canals, flagstone paved streets and museums. During the tour, you will discover the delicate old bridges, such as Yongning Bridge, Huanxiu Bridge and Wolong Bridge, from which you could capture amazing pictures of the jagged residence along with the water channels. Besides, ramble along the long ceilinged corridor at your own pace to inhale the serene views of the water canals and take a break in the shelter at times. You could embark on a sculling boat excursion on the water channels to unlock more spectacles along the way, such as women washing clothes by the river and seniors playing chess under the corridor. Or you may stop at a café or tea house clinging to the corridor to enjoy some drinks. Besides, you will visit the private gardens of the former wealthy lords in Ming and Qing dynasties, like the West Garden (Xiyuan) and Fantasy Garden (Zuiyuan). Hunting for fun, the root carving museum and button museum would enable you to take a dip of the most interesting artworks in the town. And a visit to the Wine Museum brings you back to ancient China to learn about the ancient wine culture and brewery procedure.

At the end of the tour, sit back on your comfortable vehicle and return to your hotel for a nice rest.
