    What to Expect
    After pickup from your Hangzhou hotel, make your way to Shaoxing, hometown of Lu You, one of China’s greatest poets from the Song Dynasty. One of the best ways to experience this water town is aboard a Wupeng boat (a black-awning gondola). Ride on one of these traditional Chinese boats and enjoy the exquisite scenery of the town’s ancient bridges, lovely riverside houses and the bustling local bazaars set right by the water.

    Next, walk over to Shen Garden and marvel at the gorgeous classical buildings and bridges and wonderful scenery. As you stroll through the garden, your guide will tell you the story about how Lu You met his lover Tang Wan in this garden and composed poems about her and wrote them on the walls.

    After enjoying a delicious Chinese lunch at a local restaurant, your guide will lead you on a short walk to the Lanting Orchid Pavilion. Surrounded by an elegant landscape of crystal-clear streams and dense bamboo groves, this venue has become a central meeting point for local calligraphers. Witness the meticulous display of this skill and marvel at the beautiful finished pieces. After a relaxing day in Shaoxing, sit back and enjoy a scenic drive back to your Hangzhou hotel.
