What You Can Expect

Private Day Trip: Tongli Water Town from Shanghai with Lunch

Capture classic shots of watery vistas

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.
