OVERVIEW ITINERARY TOUR DETAILS REVIEWS SUGGESTED HOTELS

This tour discovers the small towns of Suzchou and Wuzhen which are compared to the illustrious Italian city because of their intricate network of canals and stone bridges, as well as Hangzhou, described by Marco Polo as a “Heaven on Earth”, at least in part due to the West Lake, a recent addition to UNESCO’s world heritage sites

Along the way you’ll learn, absorb and savor the sights, sounds and subtle nuances through unique interactions that only a trip with Backyard Travel can offer.

Your guide will show you behind the scenes of the real China as you experience the wonderful watery towns, and step back in time to the rural areas.

THE BACKYARD DIFFERENCE
  • Take a morning bike ride round the narrow streets of Suzhou’s old town.
  • Discover the old wooden houses, cobbled streets and beautifully sculpted stone bridges of Wuzhen.
  • Spend time with bonsai specialist who will show you his art.
  • In Wuzhen, have the choice between 04 different optional day tours, including visits to either a Chinese water puppet theatre, take part in a wine-tasting session, pay homage at the home of Mao Dun, a famous 20th century revolutionary writer or visit a traditional dye workshop.
  • See China’s largest bamboo forest and one of the greatest examples of ecotourism in the country.
