A tour of the Suzhou City Moat is one of the most popular activities in the city. The moat was excavated by Wu Zong, minister of the Wu State in the Spring and Autumn Period (from around 771 to the mid-400s BC). It is also lined with historical and cultural relics on both sides of the ancient city. As tourists bask in the history on either side of the strait, tour guides on the ship explain the history of the moat, offer Pingtan performances that involve storytelling and ballad singing, and sell souvenirs.
