Wuzhen Tour

Ancestors of Wuzhen lived here some 7000 years ago since New Stone Age. In the past 1000 years, it never changes its name, address or waterway system. Wuzhen is the only water town with the Grand Canal running through.  Profound history and favorable location endow this town with splendid culture. While developing tourism nowadays, Wuzhen also makes maximum efforts to preserve the township to its original appearance. There are more than 100 ancient bridges and 40 hectares of late 19th century original buildings. You may see craft demonstrations in Wuzhen now such as fabric printing and dyeing and wine brewage.
