There is a daily evening performance show called "Zhouzhuang in Four Seasons" and it is a must-watch. The first large-scale water performance and an acclaimed world class theater production, "Zhouzhuang in Four Seasons" unveils the folk customs and traditions of the authentic and original Zhouzhuang lifestyle through the love story of Shen Wansan, the richest businessman in the region back in Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) and Lu Liniang.
"Zhouzhuang in Four Seasons" is staged daily from 7-8 pm April until November at the water stage, regular tickets are 150 yuan (US$ 23) per person and VIP tickets are 280 yuan.
You could combine Suzhou and Zhouzhang. Travel from Shanghai to Suzhou and stay overnight, travel onto Zhouzhang the next morning, visit the water town then and return to Shanghai the following morning
