At around 8:30-9:00am,  you will be picked up from the hotel in downtown Shanghai and taken to Suzhou City. After about 90 minutes driving time, you will arrive at Suzhou. You will first visit the Humble Administrators Garden which is the most famous southern China garden. The stories behind the buildings are interesting, so listen to the knowledgeable guide carefully. The classic garden tour will last for 2 hours.

Next you will take half an hour on a rickshaw through ancient Suzhou. Narrow alleys, small streets, small tributaries of the ancient canal decorate the ancient city. Many local people still live there. You will get to know the culture there.

Lunch will be arranged in a local restaurant. Your guide will help you order the dishes according to your tastes.

After lunch, you will head to Tongli Water Town by car with 40 minutes driving time. You will spend a whole afternoon to explore this beautiful town. A 20-minute boat ride along the canal is included. No trip to water town is complete without a boat ride. Your guide will help you visit Tuisi Garden, Chongben Hall and Jiayin Hall, which you will hardly see outside of water town.
