The town has numerous bridges, ancient harbors and water-side pavilions, and makes an excellent complimentary side-trip for visitors staying in nearby Hangzhou. Buses ply the route from Hangzhou to Wuzhen.



Zhejiang cuisine is one of the major cuisines of China. It isn't greasy and has a fresh and soft flavour with a mellow fragrance.
