Taste charm of Zhouzhuang at night


Visitors are now able to enjoy the unique night view of Zhouzhuang, as the renowned ancient town has rolled out a night tour service recently.

The cruise route will pass by numerous attractions including Fu'an Bridge, Zhang House, Twins Bridge, Zhouzhuang Ancient Opera Stage, Quangong Bridge and Zhouzhuang Museum.

The service runs from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm in the off-season and extends by one more hour for peak season.

The ticket price is set at 180 yuan ($26.7) per trip, which uses a traditional Chinese boat that can carry up to six persons.

The following are some brief introductions to the scenic spots the route passes by.

Fu'an Bridge

Located at the eastern end of Zhongshi Street, Fu'an Bridge was built in 1355 during the Yuan Dynasty. The unique trait of the Fu'an Bridge is the consummate combination of a single-arch and the bridge towers. It is said the bridge was built by Shen Wansan's younger brother, Shen Wansi. In order to avoid sharing the fate of his elder brother, who was extremely rich but was exiled to Yunnan, Shen initiatively donated money to construct the bridge to pray for his well-being after getting rich.
