Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Book this Zhujiajiao tour for a deeper understanding of the quaint water town. You’ll visit its main attractions, see the best views, ride a gondola, and sample local delicacies. Because it’s a private tour, you’ll have plenty of time for questions. Pickup and drop-off from Shanghai hotels makes for a hassle-free day trip, and you can upgrade for an evening acrobatics show.
  • Take a trip back in time (and on a gondola) in Zhujiajiao water town
  • Feast on sticky rice dumplings, steamed pork, and Chinese candy
  • Relax with a private guide and round-trip transportation from Shanghai
  • Upgrade to include an evening acrobatics show
What to Expect
Greet your guide and driver in your hotel lobby at a time of your choosing, then relax as you journey into rural China and the ancient water town of Zhujiajiao. Stroll the narrow streets, visiting traditional buildings, shops, and handicraft stalls. You’ll stop to admire the architecture of the 16th-century Fangsheng Bridge, and sample local delicacies such as sticky rice dumplings, steamed pork in bamboo leaves, and Chinese candies. Finally, enjoy a canal ride in a traditional gondola, still poled by hand as it has been for centuries, before your driver returns you to Shanghai. If you’ve upgraded, enjoy an evening acrobatics show.
