Wuzhen Travel Tips
Best Time to Travel
The weather in Wuzhen is no different to that in Xiaxing and Xitang. The most beautiful scenery of Wuzhen is in spring and fall. Avoid touring Wuzhen in summer at noon, as there’s no shelter from the strong sunshine.
The best time of a day is in the morning and evening. In the morning, the thin mist rises from above the river course, making you feel like you are walking in a dream. In the evening, the sun sets and tourists go away, leaving Wuzhen quiet and peaceful.
The Water Town Carnival
The Jiangnan (south of the Yangtze River) Water Town Carnival is from 5th April to 29th April. Every year at this time, the "Xiang Market" described in Mao Dun’s book appears, and there are huagu (flower drum) plays and folk plays in Xiuzhen Taoist Temple.
