Upon arrival in Suzhou, the first stop is Net Master Garden, the best and most celebrated as a model Ming Dynasty Garden in all of Suzhou.

Then it’s on to view the Ancient City Wall, the Grand Canal, and a tour of a Silk Spinning Factory to see how Chinese silk has been produced since the 14th century.

After lunch, visit the water town of Zhouzhuang and board a Chinese-style Gondola to cruise the waterways of the town.
