Stop At: Huzhou Nanxun Old Town, No.38 Shiyuan Road, Nanxun Town, Nanxun District, Huzhou 313009 China

Your Nanxun water town tour begins with pickup from your Hangzhou hotel or the Hangzhou Train Station by our Hangzhou local tour guide and driver. It takes around 1.5 hour drive from Hangzhou to Nanxun Water Town for one way. 

Little Lotus Garden: The centerpiece of the enormous garden compound, which comprises over 7,000 square meters, not surprisingly, is a lotus pond. Artificial streams run here and there throughout the large garden, with winding, in places tree-lined paths nearby, and with numerous smaller buildings surrounded by lawns, shrub oases, flower gardens, the whole interspersed with trees. Besides enjoying its idyllic beauty, you will have a chance to see the traditional procedure for making Chinese writing brushes, and even make your own one. 

Baijian Lou (Mansion of One Hundred Rooms): Baijianlou or the "100 houses complex", is a perfect place to see the well-preserved traditional residential buildings. They are not restored and have kept their ancient and local charm. The Chinese old town lifestyle still exists there and can be seen along the canal by small numbers of tourists. Baijian Lou can date back some 400 years to the end of the 16th century, near the end of the Ming Dynasty.

Liu's Family Compound:The Liu’s garden is typical of most of the private garden residences of Nanxun Water Town, in that the garden's buildings combine both traditional Chinese architectural elements with Western architectural elements. In this residence, you will have a chance to learn Chinese block printing, an old type of technology used for making books. You can try your hand at printing and use your own brush to write your name in Chinese.

Zhangshiming's Former Residence: It is known as the “top private residence of the Jiangnan (southern part of the Yangtze River) region”, and is one of the few such residences remaining that retains their original appearance. It offers a unique mix of Western ballrooms and Confucian family altars. 

Wedding Performance on the Water: Apart from historical sites, you will be impressed by a wedding show on the water. There are at least 10 ferries engaged in the wedding on water. All are decorated with red flowers and ribbons, because the color red is an indispensable element of a Chinese wedding. The bride and groom are dressed in the traditional Chinese style, waving to tourists on the banks. Sometimes, they even invite tourists to hop on to their wedding ferry. Traditional music is played on ancient instruments. All of these depict how a traditional wedding was conducted in the ancient water town.

Free on your own for a while until our guide and driver take you back to your hotel in Hangzhou or Hangzhou train station and your tour ends.
