Take life easy on this convenient day tour that includes not only Zhouzhuang but the historic center of Suzhou, a canal city famous for silk. In addition to a gondola ride and a silk factory tour, visit the UNESCO-listed Master-of-Nets Garden and savor a Chinese lunch. Hotel pickup makes for a hassle-free trip.
