What you can expect

During this full day guided tour, discover the charming delights of the wonderful water town of Zhujiajiao and visit one of the most famous Buddhist shrines at Jade Buddha Temple. Finish with a tour of the old arts and crafts enclave of Tianzifang for a wholly enriching experience.

Your local tour guide meets you in your Shanghai downtown hotel lobby in the morning and whisks you away on a relaxing drive to Zhujiajiao. This ancient water town, beset by shimmering lakes and jagged mountains, features old bridges, well structured courtyards, and an overall ambiance of antiquity, leisure, and tranquility. Archaeological findings in this well preserved town date back as far as 5,000 years.

Later enjoy lunch in a local nice restaurant and continue to visit the Jade Buddha Temple, one of the city's most famous Buddhist shrines. Admire its 2 precious jade Buddhist statues—both the Sitting Buddha and the Recumbent Buddha are carved with impressive detail from whole white jade.

Complete your journey with a trip to Tianzifang, an ancient enclave known for its impressive collection of boutique shops, bars, and restaurants. Stroll the district's labyrinthine alleyways while your guide shares insight into its thriving arts and crafts identity. After that, enjoy a hassle free ride back to your hotel.
