After arrived at Zhouzhuang Water Town. Zhouzhuang, one of the most famous water townships in China.

Next is the Residence of Shen wansan. This attraction, based on relevant stories of Shen Wansan, vividly displays how he obtained his wealth, his bumpy experience, legendary lifetime and the daily life of the whole family via bronze statues, brick carvings, realistic models, comic strips, clay sculptures and any other means of aesthetic expressions. It is no doubt that it is a human landscape of moment in Zhouzhuang.

Move on to Twin Bridge. Twin Bridge is made up of a stone arch bridge – Shide Bridge and a stone beam bridge – Yong’an Bridge. The locals also refer to it as Key Bridge because of the shape of the two bridge holes, one being round, the other square, much like the keys people use in the ancient times. Photographers prefer this magic place, too. Finding a vintage point, you can fix your experience with your camera. 

In the afternoon, you will head for Jinxi Water Town. There are five lakes and over 30 bridges cross the waterways of the town, is famous with its delicate architecture and laid back lifestyle.
