Ancient Town must to visit

A very cozy and interesting district in Shanghai to visit. A pity that when I went the weather was not so good, raining sometimes, but enough to see what the place has to offer.

We had a great day there, and it was very relaxing. We took a boat ride, ate decent noodles in a random family-run restaurant, and hung out with a cool couple from Germany. You can take the bus there. It's a couple hours away, but it took longer coming back because we hit rush hour gridlock traffic. Take a lot... More

An experience of a different town which is situated inside the river. The shops and houses are surrounded by river just as in Venice. Must visit. Its on the outskirts of Shanghai.

Took a taxi to Zhujiajiao from our hotel in Shanghai and a bus back to central Shanghai afterwards. Although very busy with tourists the town is attractive and well worth a visit. A very relaxing and enjoyable escape from the bustle of the city and easily reached.

Directions: Get the metro to 'Dashijie' metro stop, which is on Line 8. When yu get there, take exit 4, head towards the Concert Hall. When you... More

Where to start? There were a few interesting things to see, but I do not think I would drive the hour or so from the city center to come here. Stick to the city center and the temples you can see there and the shopping you can do there. The sightseeing spots here were so dirty and neglected. I had... More

This town is absolutely for tourists and despite reading the reviews we made the mistake of parting with our hard earned money. Thank goodness we took the public bus at only a few RMB! You have to buy tickets to the 'attractions' which amounted to poorly maintained galleries and temples. Be aware of man giving you josticks in the temples,... More

If you are curious about ancient china, this place is worth a visit. Nice wee village, loads of restaurants, gift shops and street food. No stress if you can't eat chinese, theres a starbucks by the main bridge.
