    What to Expect
    Wuzhen is well known for its ancient stone bridges, stone pathways, and delicate wood carvings. Originally it is connected by rivers and canal, and divided into 4 areas: Dongzha, Xizha, Nanzha, and Beizha. "Zha" is wooden dam in Chinese, "Dong" is East, "Xi" is West, "Nan" is Souch, and "Bei" is North. Till now Xizha and Dongzha are the best reserved areas.

    Day 1

    Make your own way to Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station (make sure you get to the station 30 minutes prior to train departure time). Use your passport to redeem your first-class paper ticket (round trips) at the ticketing counter. Your eTicket will be reserved in advance by your local tour operator. It takes 40 minutes by the fastest bullet train from Shanghai to Tongxiang Railway Station (the closest railway station to  Wuzhen).

    Upon arrival at Tongxiang Railway Station, you will make your own way to your hotel. Enjoy free time for the rest of the day.

    You will stay overnight in an oriental-style hotel in a well-reserved district of Xizha, located in ancient town of Wuzhen. It offers you a chance to enjoy the beauty of Wuzhen after dark. 

    Day 2 (B)

    Free time to explore Wuzhen by yourself.  Your admission ticket is available for both Xizha and Dongzha. Some highlights you can see include the Hundred-Bed Museum, Wine Distillery Workshop, Hongyuantai Dyehouse, and a shadow play show. 

    Hundred-Bed Museum, known as Zhao's Hall, has a numerous collection of ancient beds made in Ming and Qing dynasties and modern times, reflecting the centuries-old Chinese civilization.

    As the only one distillery still in existence, Gaogongsheng Distillery produces a kind of alcohol named Sanbai Wine, Duta Alcohol or Three Whites Wine because it is made with white rice, white flour and white water (pure water). The alcohol is famous for its soft and lasting mellowness. Take a workshop here. 

    Hongyuantai Dyehouse was founded in the Song Dynasty, where is a great place to appreciate how Chinese people make cloth in a traditional way and witness the process of how the local people make Chinese blue calico.

    Shadow Play is a form of entertainment created by projecting the shadow of cattle- or sheep-hide puppets on to a screen. 

    You will be picked up from your hotel lobby in the late afternoon, and be transferred to Tongxiang railway station. Then take bullet train back to Shanghai.
