"Shaoxing is more beautiful than I’ve expected."
Shaoxing is more beautiful than I’ve expected. We went to Shen Garden and Lanting Pavilion, both of which displays the amazing culture and the delicate scenic beauty of southern Chinese cities. It’s a pleasant experience to go sightseeing on a boat. I saw the local life of Shapxing people. The city makes me calm and happy. I love the trip. It’s totally worth it!

"i fell in love with the city"
One of my Chinese friends advised me to visit Shaoxing, and it turned out he was right! I felt in love with this city when I took a Wupeng Boat along the river that runs through the city. I saw the houses of the local people, and I saw the many delicate bridges and the natural beauty along the river. Everything seemed so calm and delicate. After that, I went to Shen Garden and Lanting Pavilion, both showing the wonderful amazing culture of China. Other old cities and towns in China are top on my traveling list, because they are really very appealing.

"I will come back again!"
I think the trip was good value for money. My cousin and I had a wonderful experience there in Shaoxing. That city was like a hidden treasure for foreign visitors, since they have no idea how a small southern city can be more interesting than some more known big cities. Thanks to the wise advice from your staff, we were able to visit this city and totally enjoyed it. We went to Lanting Pavilion and saw the unbelievable calligraphy works; at Shen Garden, we learnt the sad love story of a famous Chinese poet; we saw the distinctive buildings and lifestyle of the local people when taking the boat cruise…I will come back again!
