Suzhou one day tour -the city of Garden and silk town

Private tour in Shanghai

Tour Price : 1pax 310USD,extra Per Pax 50USD Duration : 9 hours Languages: English,Chinese(Mandarin),Shanghainese,some Korean

Located in a few hours’ drive south of Shanghai, Suzhou is a large modern city that still carries many signs of its long, over 2, 500 years' history. The first thing you’ll notice in this city is the large amount of waterscapes and parks located on the banks of the Yangtze River and the shores of Taihu lake. Despite being a rather modern and dynamic city, Suzhou is very devoted to preserving its past, as numerous pagodas, stone bridges, canals and parks are located throughout the place. Some parts of it even resemble Venice, with old houses sitting right over the channels, yet with an Oriental flavor, of course.

This city is also famous for its silk production, and we’ll focus our tour on this aspect as well. First, we’ll head to the Master of the Nets garden, the beauty of which has earned it the title of UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then we’ll explore the Grand Canal and the Old City to see the most ancient parts of this historic place. We’ll also visit the Suzhou silk mill to discover how the world-famous product is made.

And after visiting the Mountain Villa for some relaxation, we’ll head back to Shanghai. You can change the details of the tour if you want to see different parts of Suzhou. Just tell me, and I will gladly assist!

Flora is a wonderful guide. Her English is excellent. She selected areas outside of Shanghai for us to visit, which we had not seen on a prior trip. She is friendly and was able to accomodate our needs on a day to day basis.
