Explore Wuzhen, the Oriental Venice, in a day trip from Shanghai
Today's tour will bring you to one of the most beautiful water villages, named Wuzhen. It takes about 2 hours to get there. And you will find out it definitely deserves the time. Wuzhen has a history of over 6000 years, but still remains charming and peaceful as ever. The West Gate of Wuzhen is now well under protection with indigo fabric mill, museum of bounded feet , ancient study and many cultural sites waiting for you to discover!
There is an option to have a boat ride in the village (not included in the tour price), and it will make you feel like entering into a water color painting.
Last but not the least, Wuzhen is also the paradise for gourmet. I will bring you to the local restaurant and have a try!
