TOUR ITINERARY

Tour code:
GWAC-HZBUS1

At about 8AM your English-speaking guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel in Hangzhou. From there we will make the two hour drive to Wuzhen. Wuzhen is one of China’s ancient water towns, where waterways thread their way through the flagstone streets and alleys. Wuzhen is located in north Zhejiang province, and is only about an hour’s drive from Hangzhou. The name "water town" is especially apt; besides lying on the Grand Canal, the settlement is completely encircled by two rivers - the Dong Shi and a smaller tributary, which meet at a T-junction.


The waterways of Wuzhen are kept topped up with water by the adjacent Hangzhou to Beijing Grand Canal, which is still used to supply the dry north with water from the wet south and local goods transport. It was a major transport artery in times gone by, which led to the rise to prosperity of water towns like Wuzhen. After taking some time to walk along the alleys and byways of Wuzhen, we’ll take a boat cruise through the town’s canals. On the wooden boat you can enjoy the atmosphere of the traditional cultures and the original ancient features of the town that have been preserved intact, the elegant watery views and the strong local colored traditions and customs.

 

We will tour the city by boat, stopping to explore some of the landmarks along the way. One such landmark we’ll tour is the former home of author Mao Dun. Mao Dun is a revered writer in modern China, best known for the novel Midnight. His former home is located in the middle part of Guan Qian Street, where he lived his happy childhood. The home is a traditional Chinese style house built during the Qing Dynasty. Other places of interest that we’ll stop at are the Hundred-Beds-House, the Blue Prints Workshop, the Wood Carving Showroom, and the Pawn House.


Around 1PM we’ll stop to have lunch at a local restaurant. We recommend that you try the famous local dish, Steamed Pork Slices with Glutinous Rice Flour Wrapped in Lotus Leaves. After a few more hours touring Wuzhen by boat we’ll drive back to Hangzhou, and you’ll be dropped off at your hotel at no later than 5PM.
