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...More

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...More

High speed train from Shanghai's Hongqiao railway station to Suzhou takes 30ish minutes and cost 40ish yuan (2nd class). I went cheap and took the bus, right in the station area, for 3 (three) yuan. 45 minutes later, voila. There are fewer non Chinese tourists,...More

One of the most picturesque water town around Shanghai. Not (yet) fully commercialized. Not (yet) overcrowded, even on weekends. Especially the small roads in the "2nd row" give an impression of the historic place. No entrance fee into the town, but only to some museums,...More

Luzhi is super easy to get to from Suzhou. (Just take subway line 1 and get off at the terminus (Zhongnan Street Station). Take bus no. 528 from Exit 1 and get off at Xiaoshi Road.) Maybe because of this it's quite touristy with lots...More

Hello there! Unfortunately, I did not have the time to visit other water towns. But I do recommend travelers to try out other water towns which might be nearer for them as Luzhi water town was really out of the way for me... More
