Itinerary:This morning, please get to the Shanghai Railway Station to take a train from Shanghai to Yangzhou. Train tickets will be booked for you in advance and you only need to show your passport when boarding. Your private English-speaking guide will meet you at the railway station. Head to Slender West Lake with an air-conditioned non-smoking vehicle.
To most travelers around the world, Slender West Lake is a must while visiting Yangzhou. The whole scenic area is a large lakeside garden.
Shaped by canals, the lake is long and narrow like a slender girl, hence the name. You can roam along the lake to enjoy the peaceful lake view as well as lush plants and brightly-colored blossoms. It is particularly beautiful in early spring when peach blossoms are in full bloom. It is also a good idea to sit inside the pavilions while admiring ancient calligraphy works. At the center of the lake rests Yangzhou's most famous landmark, the Wuting Bridge.
Continue our visit to Yangzhou China Grand Canal Museum. The Grand Canal of China is the oldest, longest and largest man-made canal in the world. Displaying the history, culture and ecology environment of the Grand Canal, the Museum has attracted more and more visitors. It is known as the "encyclopedia" of China's Grand Canal.
Have a lunch break at Dongguan Street. Dongguan Street, a quaint pedestrian street brimmed with time-honored brands of snacks, face powders, and pickles. Walk around and find your preference by yourself. Your tour guide will be glad to give you some advice.
Our last stop today will be Ge Garden. This garden is shaded under lush bamboo woods. The bamboo leave there looks like a Chinese character ‘个’ which reads as 'Ge', so hence the name. Compared with other gardens, the essence of Ge Garden relies on the four grotesque rockeries representing the scenery of the four seasons together with the surrounding plants and water. The Garden was a private house of a wealthy salt merchant in the Qing Dynasty. Being well preserved, the Garden is tranquil and peaceful and it shows you the atmosphere of hundreds of years ago.
At the end of this Yangzhou day tour from Shanghai, your guide and driver will escort you to the railway station for a train back to Shanghai. Wish you a pleasant trip.
