Zhouzhuang

Zhouzhuang, “Venice of the Orient”, is well noted for its profound cultural background, the well-preserved ancient residential houses, the elegant watery views and the traditions and customs with strong local features. It is situated in Kunshan City and only 30 kilometers (18 miles) southeast of Suzhou.

As one of the most famous water townships in China, Zhouzhuang is actually surrounded by waters and lakes. Its spectacular typical southern Chinese riverside scenery will be a feast for all the tourists and remain as an unforgettable experience forever. When strolling along the ancient water lanes, tourists could enjoy its elegant-crafted bridges, classical dwellings, murmuring streams, as well as the distinctive local traditions and customs around. Its most famed attractions consist of the Fu’an Bridge, Double Bridge and Shen's Hall of Residence, etc.

With a history of over 900 years, the classical dwellings of Zhouzhuang were all built in the style of Ming and Qing Dynasties. In order to protect its unique tourism resources, the town has been well preserved and developed into a well-known tourist resort under the concept of “Simultaneous Protection and Development”. And now, it is both entitled “No. 1 Water Town of China” and “The Top 50 Places Favored by Overseas Tourists”.
