Day 1: Shanghai-Suzhou-Shanghai

After breakfast, you will be picked up at your hotel and transferred to Suzhou to visit the [Wangshi Garden] which is also called fisherman’s Garden. This 0.6-hectare garden is an elegant structure of a typical official’s residence of the Qing Dynasty. The present garden is found on the former site of a Song dynasty official’s mansion. Its owner, an early Qing-dynasty official Song Zongyuan, gave its present name based on the earlier one, ‘‘Fisherman’s Retreat’’

The [Silk Factory] is always a must place for the visitors as Suzhou is” the City of silk”. Visitors would have the chance to see the real cocoons. The demonstrations of reeling, weaving and printing are interesting and the fabrics are, of course, beautiful.

[Panmen Gate] is Suzhou's oldest and the most completely preserved part of the ruins of the ancient city of Suzhou. It has a long history of more than 2,500 years.

After lunch we will take a short cruise in[the Grand Canal] which was founded in about 600 BC but really making its fame one thousand years later when the Grand Canal was up and running. The great location that the city affords helped Suzhou become a prosperous trading area and the silk industry especially boomed here.

Later we’re going to take a look at the [Huqiu Pagoda] in distance. The 36-metre-tall Huqiu (Tiger Hill) Pagodastands outside the lümen Gate to the north west of Suzhou. It was where the King of the State of Wu, Fu Chai, He Lü‘s son and successor, buried his father along with 3,000 swords. Legend tells that on the third day after the burial, a white tiger appeared to guard the tomb, hence the name of the hill. After visiting come back to Shanghai and finish the one-day Suzhou tour.
