What makes this tour special

Shanghai today is an intoxicating mix of the traditional and the modern, and no trip would be complete without an excursion to ancient water town Zhujiajiao.

 
With its quaint stone bridges, mist-cloaked canals and wooden gondolas, picturesque Zhujiajiao feels a world away from modern China. Dubbed the Venice of the East, it oozes with sleepy charm where the water laps against the canal-side and echoes the slow-paced rhythm of daily life. Fishermen wait patiently for the telltale tug on a line, as housewives haul laundry from the shallows of the glassy inky-blue water. 

On this fascinating Private Tour of Zhujiajiao Ancient Water Town, you will venture into the mighty Yangtze River delta region where bicycles outnumber motorized vehicles. Everything centres on the waterways in Zhujiajiao, evoking memories of old Shanghai. Wooden gondolas ferry rice sacks and crates of fish up and down the river, sending silvery ripples across the surface of the canal. Skinny cobbled streets form a chaotic riddle through Zhujajiao crisscrossed by alleyways bedecked with red lanterns. 

Meander into the heart of Zhujiajiao where fortune-tellers, paper cutters and tea shops are backdropped by fine 13th-century Chinese buildings. As you stroll across bridges and along the canal side, see locals playing cards at rickety tables or taking tea. Of course, no visit to Zhujiajiao is complete without the timeless pleasure of a gondola ride and on your private, guided tour you will pass moored sampans where artists brush-stroke vivid colours onto silk-strung easels, to create glorious pictures of birds and blooms.
