China’s Yangtze River Delta is home to numerous canal towns oozing history and character. Dating back thousands of years, these towns were historically home to merchants, artisans, and wealthy businessmen. Today, these towns are comprised of beautifully preserved clusters of traditional white and grey architecture, winding cobblestone lanes, and beautiful ancient canals. The gardens of Suzhou are considered the most exemplary Chinese gardens, a perfect combination of water, rocks, trees, and pavilions. The towns of Tongli and Zhujiajiao are quieter, quainter towns nearby offering additional history and more picturesque streets to wander.
