Shanghai Side Trips

Like other super cities, Shanghai never lacks skyscrapers and shopping malls; but there are attracting water towns to make Shanghai like no others. If you decide to take a short tour to water towns from Shanghai, choices are a lot. Zhujiajiao, Tongli, and Wuzhen are all within a range of 1-2 hr ride. Small and exquisite stone bridges, crisscrossing canals, cobbled lanes, old-aged houses, and the same old and undisturbed village lifestyle…all will contribute a comfortable and leisurely escape from the fast-paced Shanghai. Though slightly different from one another, the 3 water towns are all well-preserved and representative, so no need to visit all of them. Choose one or two in accordance with your travel schedule.

Tongli is along the way from Shanghai to Suzhou while Wuzhen is more suggested if you have Hangzhou in your plan. For those who’d just stick around Shanghai, 0.5hr drive makes Zhujiajiao quite competitive. 

All of our tours can be customized according to your budget, timeframe and other requests. Our private tour service featuring private English speaking tour guide, AC vehicle, and licensed driver all the way means you don’t have to travel with strangers and will enjoy the privacy with families or friends, and the comfort and flexibility to control your own sightseeing pace. 

You don’t need to fear about the price of our Private Tours, though slightly higher in price, a private tour will guarantee that you have the experience of a lifetime. After all, how many times will you come to China?
