Continue the exploration in Wuzhen water town. The entrance fee for the village provides access to a number of major sites, which differ vastly in attraction. Depending on personal interests, the day’s plans can be altered, with a professional guide happy to provide guidance along the way. Below are some excellent day choices:
. Wine Distillery Workshop: It is a distillery to display wine-brewing culture in Wuzhen. In Ming Dynasty, it produced Sanbai Wine, a famous alcoholic drink that pleases the palate with its soft, lasting mellowness.
. Watch one of the brilliant daily performances at the flower drum opera (Huagu Opera). Enjoy Chinese classics performed by the local artists at the Chinese shadow puppet theatre. The shows provide the possibility to marvel at an ancient Chinese art form.
. Watch the Martial Arts Performance that are held eight times daily on the Kungfu Boat. For those who’d prefer the visual arts of dyeing and printing, head to the blue printing atelier which explains the techniques used in the production of traditional Chinese clothing.

Head to ANJI
, a town dominated by bamboo forests in western Zhejiang and renowned for owning the country's biggest sea of bamboo. It is one of the greatest examples of ecotourism in China. Upon arrival, stroll through the heart of this silent, emerald green forest. Along the mountain road, you could see bamboo sprouts were plucked and cooked by the peasants all the way up the mountain.
Continue onwards to HANGZHOU
, the ancient capital of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127 – 1279) and the current provincial capital of Zhejiang province. It attracts a large number of visitors with its enchanting natural scenery and rich cultural heritage.
Then pay a visit to the Longjing tea plantations
. Home to one of the most prized and expensive teas in the world, these fields not only produce some of the world’s finest tea, but also are a visually stunning visit. During the stroll, there will an opportunity to meet a local tea producer who will be able to introduce different types of tea: green tea, black tea, Oolong tea, fragrant tea, white tea or even ancient ‘tea bricks’.
