An "ancient water town", presumably comparable with Venice?... Well, not really! We went there because of proximity to central Shanghai - but it was a disappointment. The town has been turned into a classic tourist trap. Crowded and smelly. No one to guide you through the history presumably sorrounding the town. The shops at the back of the tiny town offer a better environment to enjoy some of the hidden beauty that may still linger around - but you must get past the entranceway fast!! Better still, look for other ancient water towns, even if they mean longer rides to get there.
