Tips for you

    Things to do
  • Narrow streets lined with shops, restaurants and bars.
    Things to do

    What to see

We enjoyed our visit to Wuzhen. We spent 2 nights here but only spent one day within the actual scenic area. We chose to visit the west side and thought it was very pretty especially at night when all lit up. We spent a good part of day wandering around the little streets and sampled food and drinks along the way. There was plenty choice and we had a very relaxing and enjoyable day. The waterways were full of little boats offering trips. A great experience overall.

No wander it's called the Venice of China, The town is made up of rivers for roads. It was beautiful. Luckily we went on an off-season so it wasn't as crowded. It was also raining when I went but even though it was raining, the town was still so beautiful! I can't imagine how beautiful it must be when it is clear and sunny. This is definitely a recommended place to visit in China.
