The first tourism spot is Zhouzhuang's Twin Bridges which were built during the late Ming dynasty (1368-1644) and are considered to be the symbol of Zhouzhuang. "Memory of Hometown", which depicted the Twin Bridges, was one of the items on display and has gained the world's attention for Zhouzhuang. The painting was chosen to be the first-day cover of the United Nations' postage stamp in 1985. The bridges are said to resemble an ancient Chinese key, thus locals also refer to it as "Key Bridge".Your guide will share the history and legends associated with the bridges, enriching your understanding of their cultural significance.

We had a wonderful full day visiting Suzhou and Zhouzhuang with Autumn! It was raining, which scared off a lot of visitors and allowed us to have many of the sites to ourselves. We visited Tiger Hill Pagoda, the City Wall and it’s many gardens and the Silk Museum. In ZhouZhuang we visited the #1 Watertown and enjoyed it’s beautiful alleys and a gondola ride. This is our third tour booked through Sam's Shanghai Private Tour and he has done another great job in helping us create some great memories with our boys (10 and 12 years old). Thank you!
