Hotel details

In the south of the Yangtze River Delta near Shanghai, there are many secluded and peaceful ancient water towns. They have in common ancient bridges, flagstone streets, well-proportioned waterfront houses with whitewashed wall and black tile roofs varying in height, charming watercourses and streets running parallel to each other. But Wuzhen seems to contain richer historical and cultural flavors, maybe because it boasts the best conservation project among all of the ancient towns in Yangtze River Delta, most venerated history and least modern influences. Now it is commonly known that Wuzhen is the best preserved water town in China. Together with Nanxun, Xitang in Zhejiang Province and Zhouzhuang, Tongli, Luzhi in Jiangsu Province, Wuzhen received a UNESCO Asian-Pacific Heritage Award for its preservation of traditional architecture. When the local people opened the ancient riverine town of Wuzhen to visitors in early 2001, they were determined to avoid the tacky mix of tourist restaurants and souvenir shops that has swamped other nearby water towns. Wuzhen has been preserved rather than restored, lovingly kept rather than tarted up, and its ancient ways of life maintained. Most of all, Wuzhen is still a living town, where daily life goes on seemingly unimpeded by a growing trickle of visitors.


Wuzhen, a town with a history of 1200 years, is only around 2 hours drive from Shanghai. It is divided in two parts of touristic interest: Xizha (West Wuzhen) and Dongzha (East Wuzhen).  Xizha has a special charm, it is renovated with the investment of around 1 Billion Chinese dollar. Now The ancient Xizha Street is one of the best-kept architectures of Ming and Qing dynasties in China. There are residential area, workshop area, culture area, ancient college, temples and Pagoda, gardens, bridges, dining area, shopping area, all of these feature local traditions and customs.


The night view in Xizha (West Part of Wuzhen) boasts one of the best night view sceneries in China – it is the fairyland you never dreamed.

How to get to Wuzhen from Shanghai?

1) Rent a private car
The most convenient way is to arrange a private car service to Wuzhen from Shanghai. It will take around 2 or 3 hours one way between Shanghai and Wuzhen. But I am afraid that it is also the most expensive way. For instance, 2 Days rental of 9 seats car (seat number includes the seat of the driver) is RMB2360 (including highway fee, parking fee and 4 meals for the driver, But exclude the accommodation of driver in Wuzhen, it is around RMB150)


2) To take the long distance bus:
One way long distance bus from Shanghai South Long Distance Bus Station (by the side of Shanghai South Railway Station) to Wuzhen is around RMB60 per person. It will take around 2 hours one way. But in Shanghai, our travel service company can only buy the one way Shanghai->Wuzhen Bus Ticket for our tourists and we will add our service fee on it. We have no way to buy the Wuzhen-Shanghai long distance bus ticket in Shanghai. Tourists have to buy it at Wuzhen Bus Station when arrive at Wuzhen on the 1st day.



Some tips

How to tour in Wuzhen Town?
1) More info about the East Part and West Part of Wuzhen Town:
When arrived at Wuzhen Bus Station, tourists should take the tricycle to the ancient Wuzhen town. It is around 10 minutes from the Bus Station to the West Part of Wuzhen Town. Maybe costs around RMB20 - RMB30 one way for one tricycle.


Ancient Wuzhen Town Tourist Area is with West and East Part. There is around 1.5 or 2 km between them. Normally one day tour can only visit one part.


The East Part is developed early and now there are still the local people staying in it. There are two streets along one limpid narrow canal with old buildings and bridges and nice canals in it. The entrance fee of it is cheaper than west part. So it is very crowded and almost all of the one day tour group of local Chinese to Wuzhen from Shanghai organized by travel services would only visit this East Part of Wuzhen, because it is cheaper. But tell you the truth that the cream of Wuzhen is its West Part - it is somewhat like a very very big Xintiandi (The Xintiandi area is the most famous fashion center inside the old building region in the former French Concession in downtown Shanghai.), but in the shape of South China Water Village with cannels, rivers, islands, bridges, temples, Pagoda, former farmers' buildings, many long and old streets, gardens and so on... 


The official website of Wuzhen is:
It has the English version. So you can have more info in their website.


When you arrive at the West Part of Wuzhen, you will buy the entrance ticket at the Reception Hall which is right like a charming hotel lobby but in the typical ancient Chinese features. If you stay in the hotel in the West Part of Wuzhen, you will also check in your hotel here. Your luggage will be shipped into your hotel from here and you will check in the West Part of Wuzhen at this hall. then you will take a boat from the Check-in Lobby side to cross a picturesque lake to get into the town. It is free of charge. (of course you can also walk along the causeway to get into it.)


The main street inside the West Part is around 1800 m from the east end to the west end. The old local people's residences by the side of the street have been converted into home stay hotel which can meet the international standard. But government also employed the original owner of these houses to maintain these hotel rooms. So you will find that they will tell you that these rooms are their home and you are welcome to visit their home.


The boat course is around 1700m long. You can take boat there. But is only takes around 20 or 30 minutes. It should be paid additionally.
