Upon arrival in the water town, first, visit the Jiangnan Hundred Beds Museum: the first museum in China to collect and exhibit ancient beds of the Jiangnan region. This museum holds dozens of examples of finely crafted beds from the Ming and Qing dynasties to modern times. With exquisite design and workmanship, these are more than items of furniture, but excellently-preserved examples of Chinese folk art. It takes more than a thousand of craftsmen three years to make the bed, hence the name.

Next, pay a visit to the Folk Custom Show Room. This museum displays artifacts used in festivals and celebrations by local people over the centuries. You can learn the interesting wedding, seasonal changes and life style of local people dating back to the late 19th centuries.

Move on to Sanbai Wine Workshop. This is one of the most famous distilleries in Jiangnan area, dating back to the Ming Dynasty. Sanbai wine is a pure liquor, which made of flour, water and rice. Here you will have a chance to witness how it brew and sample one cup of one of the world's finest rice wines for free.

Continue your tour to Indigo Fabric Workshop, Wuzhen is one of its original manufacturing places. It was first founded in Wuzhen during the 13th century. You can have a look at the production base and distribution center of indigo cloth. Visitors may operate the machines to get an idea of how the original work was carried out over 200 years ago.

Then visit the Former Residence of Mao Dun, a well-known Chinese revolutionary writer. It was the Mao family home for many generations and witnessed the growth of this great revolutionist and writer. In 1988, it was listed as one of the Key State Preserved Relic Units and in 1994 was renamed the Mao Dun Museum of the City of Tongxiang.
