Fangsheng Bridge, which means setting-fish-free brigde, is one of the main attractions among the ancient 36 stone bridges, some only one yard wide. Erected in 1571, Fangsheng Brigde is considered as the longest, largest and tallest stone bridge, with five openings both in Shanghai region.
Nestled between the ancient architectural structures, Kezhi Park (Majia Garden), located on the North Street is one of the largest gardens in the Southern China. It is noted for beautiful sightseeing and quiet and secluded surroundings and a unusual feature of Kezhi Park is a significant symbolic architecture – foursquare five-story building standing on the top of “Moon View Pavilion”.

Yuanjin Buddhist Shrine was first built more than 600 years ago. Therefore, the Temple was named after the Empress but it has a statue of Holy Mother of Chenzhou. Smart in structure and the colorful design and the sense of holiness are allures of this temple.
Stroll through the town and get a real buzz from staying away from the hustle and bustle of city! You will feel like walking in an elegant and fresh painting.

    What is the maximum number of people per tour? Are you able to pick up from a hotel rather than the port? How are your prices quoted;
    is it a flat rate or does the price go down with additional people?
    Thank you

    Do you have tours that coordinate with Celebrity Millennium Shanghai, departure 10/26/2019. We would arrive by air before 10/26 Millennium departure 10/26 from Shanghai. We have NOT booked flights yet, so we are flexible on days to spend there before the cruis departs 10/26.
