Private tour to Jinxi Water Town from Shanghai
This is a typical itinerary for this productStop At:
Jinxi Ancient Town, Jinxi Town, Kunshan 215324 China
After entering the attraction,first of all you will see a quite old bridge called Lotus Bridge across the lake which is a long corridor with tile roofs and raked eaves, arched to allow boats to pass below. On the near-town side of the bridge are lotuses. That is how the bridge got its name.
The bridge links to the Lotus Bridge Temple at one end.On the far side of the bridge lies the tomb of Concubine Chen, from the Southern Song dynasty (1127-1279). It is built on a small piece of land in the center of the Wubao Lake, with trees encircling the cemetery and keeping company with the deceased.
Flowing past the entrance, the water extends into a system of canals that thread the town together. It seems no different from other water towns. The only distinction may be that, in Jinxi, the locals outnumber the outsiders, not the other way around. On the streets, locals dry vegetables and noodles under the sun, and the elderly sun-bathe at the foot of wall.
The old Shangtang Street is built along a canal. Shops and eateries are open to the waterside promenade, which has wooden roofs and pillars. Long benches with backrests are fixed at the edge of the gallery though covered by the eaves. Chairs and small tables are put close to the benches for groups of people to sit together.
Lunch will be arranged at a local farm house with some delicious dishes made of seasonal fresh ingredients so you can try the local specialty of the South of Yangtze River.
After lunch your guide will take you for a boat cruise to go around the tranquil water town for fun and relaxation.
Have some free time on your own to visit those different museums before going back to your city.
