If you are in Shanghai or Hangzhou and have a day to spare then you could do worse than come to Wuzhen. This small town is a well preserved water town. Of course there are tourist traps everywhere. Many Chinese visit towns like these to sample the 'countryside' cuisine. Be careful about eating here if you have a weak constitution.
This is a village full of character, even on a gloomy day the place looked stunning. On a clear night, it must be wonderful to see.
