    Dear Nenad ! Thanks for your feedback, we are very sorry to hear that you had a later lunch during the tour. It was our national holidays from 31th March to 2nd April, the traffic is always bad on the road, that makes 1.5 hours ride each trip instead of 1 hour in normal day. the tour does not incloudes lunch, normally we will ask our customs if they want to try some local snacks in the water village or not, but that day is too packed ,our guide on the day thought it might be better to find a nice and clean restarount in the city. anyway he should ask you, again we are very sorry about any inconvenience during our tour. Regards Tom shanghaitom com

    Worth the trip out there. It's more quaint than inner city markets. There are few unique shops as well such as a photography shop where you can have your little ones dressed in traditional and beautiful Chinese clothing. The boat ride is pleasant and adds to the experience.
