Description

Located on 80 kilometers northwest of Hangzhou, Wuzhen is a water town with a history of more than 1300 years. From the bridges, canals and water chambers, almost everything there has stories about the past. Let's move far away from chaos of the city and explore this quiet town.

During the trip, you will visit the Hundred Beds Museum to find the different beds in ancient China. That is also a way to find Chinese culture and people's lives. You will also visit the Sanbai Wine Workshop, which was built in the Song Dynasty and is the only remaining wine workshop in Wuzhen today. Here you can also learn about the traditional brewing methods in the past.

Next, discover the best Chinese blue calico in the world, which Wuzhen is famous for, at the Hongyuan Thai dye house. This dye house was founded in Song and Yuan period and is a place where the old methods of dyeing cloth are still practiced.

You will also discover shadow puppetry, also known as Shadow Play, one of China's historic folk arts. Performed by three to five players, shadow puppetry is a play that uses puppets against an illuminated backdrop to create the shadow of movement.
