What to expect
After hotel pickup in Shanghai by your private guide, your tour starts with the 2-hour drive to Tongli Town, watching as the scenery changes from big city to rural China.  When you arrive, your guide leads you through Tongli, one of the country's most celebrated water towns. Split into seven islands by its series of canals, Tongli is home to historical architecture, old bridges, and blooming vegetation. Many of China's water towns disappeared during the country's modernization, so this is a rare chance to experience a setting like this. As you explore, you can pass by gardens and watch locals travel along the waterways by boat. Visit a restaurant for lunch, and then continue your tour to either a pearl gallery or silk museum—your choice. When your time there is up, make the return trip to Shanghai, where your tour ends with hotel drop-off in the early evening.

    Tongli Town
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    The day begins when your private driver/guide picks you up from your hotel at 8 am. Admire the transition from big-city Shanghai to rural China as you drive the two hours to Tongli in climate-controlled comfort. One of China's most celebrated water towns, Tongli is divided into seven separate islands by a network of canals, linked by a beautiful series of arching bridges: it blooms with fresh flowers. Many of China's old canal towns disappeared under the bulldozers during the rush to modernization, so Tongli really is a trip back in time. Your guide will lead you through the town, ensuring you get the best views of gardens, ancient bridges, and stone houses. Watch the locals riding boats as they go about their daily routine among the waterways, capture shots of watery vistas, and soak up the atmosphere. Enjoy an included lunch at a local restaurant, then visit your choice of a pearl gallery or silk museum, before heading back to Shanghai at 3 pm. You'll arrive at your hotel around 5 pm.
