Description

Compared with other water towns around Shanghai, Fengjing is much quieter. It will show you not only all of the elements a classical Chinese water town should have (old houses, stone bridges, netted canals and small boats) but also much more genuine life breath and contemporary artistic air. Today, you will spend a full day to explore it and around.

At around 8:30 in the morning, your English-speaking tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby, and then drive about 50mins to Jinshan village which is famous for peasant painting. There, you will spend around one hour to appreciate the unique folk art and try your hand at painting. Afterwards, drive another 10 minutes to Xinyi Farm where you can experience local people's life in the old style: pick fresh vegetables from the field, make Zongzi (a kind of Chinese food made of glutinous rice and other ingredients) with bamboo or lotus leaves, cook lunch with traditional earth-stove, enjoy lunch then.

After lunch, have a relaxing tour in the ancient Fengjing water town with Museum of Ding Cong's Caricatures. You will also take a wooden boat ride in the canals, which both sides stand old houses. Later, drive back to the city in the late afternoon. You will arrive at your hotel in Shanghai at around 5:00 pm.
