1. Zhujiajiao Water Village: Private Tour from Shanghai
Following pick-up from your hotel or the port in Shanghai at 10:00, journey for approximately 1-hour to the 400-year old water village of Zhujiajiao on the city's outskirts. Experience the "Venice of the Orient" up close with the help of your personal driver/guide. Climb aboard a boat to ride the waterways much like the residents would have done in years gone by. Take photographs of the village as you drift past historic buildings and houses. Then, take a walk along the old alleyways for even closer looks at the buildings and bridges, such as the 300-year old, Ming-era Fangsheng Bridge. Get recommendation on local restaurants to enjoy lunch at your own expense, or feel free to bring your own snacks to eat in a picturesque area. Continue after lunch with a visit to some of the local shops in the afternoon. Bargain for good deals if you want to find souvenirs, experience everyday life or just have some fun! Then, journey back to Shanghai and get dropped off at your hotel or at the port.
