There are three places in the water town that worth your visit: the Kezhi Garden, the Qing Dynasty Post Office and the Fangsheng Bridge. Your tour guide will accompany you to visit them one by one.
  • The Kezhi Garden, built in 1912, contains various pavilions and halls, lotus pond, stele corridors, bridge of nine turnings and different kinds of plants. Besides, the stele corridor is inlaid with calligraphic inscriptions of the Ming dynasty literati, which has high artistic values.
  • In the Qing Dynasty Post Office, you can see the precious old postcards and letters in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911 AD). There is also a post box with a carved dragon which is still in use today.
  • The Fangsheng Bridge, built in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD), is the largest and longest stone arch bridge in Shanghai with five arches.
  • You will take a local featured wooden boat from outside of the Kezhi Garden and go ashore at the North Street. The left time is free for you to wander around the ancient streets where you will have an opportunity to get in close touch with the local people and their life.
