A smallish ancient water village (about 1.5km square), it’s pretty quiet on weekdays where one can wander along the alleyways and to see numerous art students sitting by the canals drawing the landscape. Also, one would notice the avid photographers with their DSLRs shooting away.

If you are visiting Shanghai then you simply have to visit one of the many water towns..and this one is the most accessible...and also the least busy. You will need to take the bullet train to Suzhou, which in itself is technically a water town but with a population of ten million it doesn't quite have that intimate feel ha! From Suzhou you need to take the bus to Luzhi for just 3 kuai....or you could take a taxi should you wish. There are many water towns in and around the Shanghai province but this was the easiest and cheapest to get to...and judging by reviews and pictures I've seen, once you have seen one then the others aren't too dissimilar. There are several winding streets here, but remember that this is actually a through road so be wary of crazed people in cars and on motorbikes. There are dozens and dozens of bridges here and most are perfect spots for photographs. There is a multitude of fast food stalls here and everyone we tried was great. The flatbread stall was so good I had to go back for a second one. Everything seems to cost 10 kuai too (just over a pound) so you can wander and snack for hours and it won't break the bank. I also tried a fancy tea here too...it was called pudding tea (or something like that)...now I'm not really sure why I tried it because I don't like tea...and it tasted very much of tea...and it was full of lumps of jelly or something. It was quite possibly the most disgusting thing I think I have ever had...that'll teach me Really enjoyed this place (despite the lumpy tea) and you will fill your camera with so many great pictures...would highly recommend this place.

I have to say that this was nicest of the water towns I visited on my trip. Compared to Tonglizhen and Mudu it did not have any crowds and it was very easy to navigate with a number of interesting museums!

Not very crowded when we were there with a small group. Popular with the Chinese. A little hokey as it's' quite touristy but it's worth a visit. There is a soy museum there that is interesting. Fun just to walk around, but wouldn't be if it was hot and packed with people

enjoyed walking through Luzhi town ourely because it kept its traditional charm and is not as commerciallised as Suzhou, Tongli or Zhuangguang. Not that all of the others have their special charm, but Luzhi is just sweet and charming, not perfect. It is friendly and people enjoy visitors by welcoming them with a smile and not with the often fiece business attitude. Relaxing place - avoid weekends for best experience.
