The town is shaped like a fan, with winding waterways connected by ancient stone bridges. Well-preserved old buildings used for residence houses, shops, tea houses and restaurants line on both sides of the waterways. With hundreds of years of history, the town boasts rich cultural and historical heritage. Walking along, you will visit attractions including its historic post office, opera stage, art gallery and traditional handicraft exhibition hall.

While driving back to Shanghai city center, visit a silk museum where you will learn about the making process of silk, and shop for quality silk products if you are interested.

At dusk, it is time to board a luxury cruise on Huangpu River for a memorable evening of spectacular scene. Buffet dinner onboard is included. After the cruise, you will be transferred back to your hotel by 21:00.

Special Notes for a Seat-in-a-Coach Tour

A seat-in-a-coach tour minimizes costs because expenses are shared among a larger group.

Seat-in-a-coach tours are operated by local business partners of China Highlights around China. China Highlights chooses business partners by strict quality standards. The service of a seat-in-a-coach tour may be not as considerate as that of a private tour sometimes.

Visiting one or two shops or markets is always included in a seat-in-a-coach tour, but you don’t have to buy anything.

A seat-in-a-coach tour usually consists of more than 5 people with a maximum of 16. You will have a local guide and use a 22-seat air-conditioned coach. We will pick you up at some appointed hotels at the appointed time. In contrast a private tour provides a private car and guide. And we will pick you up at your hotel.
