The Essential

Zhouzhuang is criss-crossed by canals where life is centred around the water: sampans manoeuvred by oar, boats used for fishing with cormorants, small floating markets where you can buy a refreshing watermelon to combat the stifling summer heat. Zhouzhuang has retained its "old China" charm, with its stone bridges and tile-covered mansions where mandarins would enjoy a peaceful retirement far from the intrigues of the court. Despite its touristy feel and appearance as a backdrop in numerous films etc, the Chinese "Little Venice", has retained its highly picturesque charm.
