These efforts are part of the town's bid to get onto the "smart" wagon, whether it with regard to tourism, administration or local livelihoods.

With the Internet, Wuzhen has created an official tourism website, a mobile app and other platforms such as a WeChat channel, so that tourists can have an enjoyable and unforgettable travel experience.

These virtual platforms provide audio guides, specialty recommendations and weather forecasts to millions of tourists every year. QR codes enable businesses to receive in-time feedback from customers. The "Internet +" environment is not only helping tourists but local residents too.
