Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village – A day trip from Shanghai

A well known picturesque silk town, Suzhou is situated 70 kilometres (43 miles) due west of Shanghai. Founded in around 600 B.C., Suzhou is one of the oldest towns in the Yangtze basin and is known for its beautiful gardens. With its interconnected waterways and beautiful environment, the city is often referred to as “the Venice of the East”. Suzhou was one of the few cities in China to escape the ravages of Mao Zedong's Cultural Revolution and its famous gardens survived almost intact. Net Master Garden is the town's best example of a model Ming Dynasty garden. The gardens embody the harmonious principles of Chinese garden construction, which dictate that gardens should re-create a microcosm of the universe in a confined space. The town has ancient city walls and Grand Canal. You should also take a tour of a silk-spinning factory to see how Chinese silk has been produced since the 14th century.
