Zhouzhuang Water Town: Explore one of China's most cherished water towns – Zhouzhuang water town. Over 900 years old, Zhouzhuang Water Town is home to some of China's best-preserved water-village architecture from the Ming-and-Qing-Dynasty. Zhouzhuang's willow-lined waterways, traditional boats and ancient stone arch bridges offer a simple beauty virtually unchanged over hundreds of years. In the water town, you can enjoy the moment to take a boat to look around in the canal. 

Zhouzhuang's Twin Bridges (Shide Bridge and Yongan Bridge) which were built during the late Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and are considered to be the symbol of Zhouzhuang. Zhouzhuang is surrounded and divided by lakes and rivers. Many stone bridges cross the rivers, showing distinctive views of the water-town. The Twin Bridges, which are Shide Bridge and Yongan Bridge, are the most famous and are considered the symbol of Zhouzhuang.

Next, you will visit Zhouzhuang's Old Drama Stage which covers an area of 4,600 m2 (49,500 ft2) and comprises an opera stage, seating area and exhibition hall. This massive stage often features performances of Kunqu opera, one of the oldest forms of Chinese Opera, as well as other traditional opera from the southern regions of the Yangtze River. Marvel at the vault-shaped roof of the stage, made up of 420 wood carvings.

Later, you will move on to Shen House, the example of Zhouzhuang's distinctive historical architecture. Built in 1742 and located at the southeast side of Fuan Bridge, Shen House was the private property of the descendant of Shen Wansan, the first millionaire of Jiangnan (South of Yangtze River) in the early Ming Dynasty. The whole architectural complex is of the Qing's style and occupies an area of more than 2,000 square meters (half an acre). Over 100 rooms are divided into three sections and each one is connected by arcades and aisles. The first is the water gate and the wharf, where Shen's family moored boats and washed clothes. The middle part includes the gate tower, the tearoom and the main hall. Bricky gate tower carved with lively and ingenious figures which tell the historic stories or show the good wishes, make it a rare artwork. Tea room and main hall are places for serving guests, and the furnishings in here are all very elegant. The last section is the two-storied dwelling which consists of several buildings which are quite different from the main hall, more comfortable and refined in pattern and atmosphere. The painted sculpture of legendary Shen Wansan is in Datang Tower; cultural relics including ancient folk instruments are exhibited in Xiaotang Tower and Back Hall.

As the night falls, the ancient town looks beautiful under the lights.
