About the tour

If you have visited one of China's ancient water towns during the day, and you have been amazed by the vivid scenery. What about at night after all tourists leave? Join us to show you an amazing night view of the historic Zhuajiajiao Ancient Town as the canals, bridges, and old houses light up after the sun fails in glowing splendor. Zhujiajiao is a water town just an hour outside of Shanghai. It was established about 1,700 years ago. It features 36 stone bridges and numerous rivers line Zhujiajiao, and many ancient buildings still line the riverbanks today. The many shops nestled into the historic buildings and stone streets lined are bustling with food vendors. Gondola rides along the canals are a popular activity. It is beautiful by day and dazzling by night!

It was good but maybe a little late in the day for them as the shops were closing around us. I know it is hard as some of our group were having to get up in the middle of the night to join us. Perhaps I should get up earlier to enjoy this trip more. Thank you so much it was very informative.

Loved Apple's enthusiasm on this tour and the time she took to show us all around. I liked that she responded well to questions and requests to look at certain things in shops or architecturally. It was a calm tour in keeping with the setting at that time of day. It made me want to visit. I loved that we saw her family, too.
