How much time you should spend in Zhouzhuang

  • Having visited Zhouzhuang a few times, I think 1 day and 1 night is a good amount of time to spend there. If you can't spend the night, 1 day is enough
  • The scenic area is quite small, you can walk all around in in 2-4 hours. Obviously if you take it slow and spend more times in the shops there, it will take longer
  • Also, keep in mind that it takes 1.5-2 hours to get here from Shanghai by bus each way (there's no train service to here), so if you do a day trip here it can be a little rushed
  • The reason I highly recommend spending the night is that the number of tourists go down a lot in the evening and morning hours, giving you more space to enjoy the town in peace. Also, the vibe of the town is very nice and cozy at night when everything is lit up. Worth checking out!
