Private Suzhou Discovery

Formerly the capital and center of the Wu kingdom, today Suzhou is a major high-tech hub on the outskirts of Shanghai. The city's lush gardens and waterside architecture have been a constant draw for artists, scholars and skilled craftsmen throughout the centuries.

Your exciting day-long journey into this fascinating city begins at the Lingering Garden, a renowned classical Chinese garden that is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk through the stunning landscapes and take note of the graceful buildings and ancient temples scattered throughout.

From here you will make your way next to the Tang Dynasty-era Pingjiang Street that will have you feeling as though you have stepped back in time and been transported to ancient China. Discover the beautiful boutique style shops and look for the popular cat cafe offering tantalizing coffees and friendly felines, then make a stop into one of the restaurants for a tasty lunch of local Chinese fare.

Following lunch, you will continue your journey to a century-old silk factory where you will watch and learn all the fascinating and intricate steps of silk making before your return trip to port.
