Fengjing Ancient Water Town

  • Approximate Cost: $45 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 5 hours
  • Location: Shanghai, China
  • When: Morning tour

Situated in the southwest of Shanghai, Fengjing Ancient Town has long been known as a typical ancient water town — as well as one of the four most famous ancient towns south of the Yangtze River. With a history of over 1,500 years, the town was governed separately by Zhejiang and Jiangsu Provinces from 1430 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). During your visit, you’ll see many Ming and Qing Dynasty buildings. With its surrounding water network, the ancient town boasts 52 old bridges, including Zhihe Bridge, which was built in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). When we cross, you’ll have a panoramic view of the ancient town’s breathtaking scenery. Your tour also includes a boat ride along the waterway and a people's commune museum. Your optional tour ends with a visit to a local silk embroidery factory on your way back to Shanghai.

Hutong Tour with Lunch

  • Approximate Cost: $49 USD per person
  • Approximate Time: 3.5 hours
  • Location: Beijing, China
  • When: half-day tour, including home-hosted lunch

Established hundreds of years ago, hutongs — or narrow lanes — were common in ancient Beijing. Several thousand lanes, alleys and quadrangles formed residential areas for ordinary people living in the capital city, and many of them are still well-preserved today. This tour will take you by trishaw through Beijing's old hutong district to a Chinese home for tea and conversation with a local famiy. The highlight of the tour will be a home-hosted lunch in another local home. This is truly a rare opportunity to see Beijing through the eyes of the local people.
