Noisy old town!!!
Mar 2021 • Couples
A lovely old town, really! The part where there are rows of shops selling clothes and pajamas and shoes is the noisy part; it was like they were competiting among each other with their loud speakers!!! Lotsssss of shops there. The old town is lovely. Crowded. Lots to see and eat. Twin pagodas were under construction when we were there. Do try their Xiao Long Bau as Nanxiang is the birthplace for these soup dumplings. Line 11 to Nanxiang station will take you there. Walk along Zhongjia Road from metro alllll the way (about 2 blocks) until you see Guyiyuan Road. Turn right and immediately turn left into Heping Street. There’s a canal by Heping Street. Walk through Heping Street, right to the end and cross the road into Nanxiang Old Street. An interesting walk indeed.

Long subway ride but you get to taste the famous Nanxiang dumplings in Nanxiang

Free to walk around. There are some museums that charge but everything is in Chinese so not sure if you want to spend the cash. Come here if you want to get some authentic handmade dumplings. Nanxiang dumplings are pretty famous in China.

Another water town
Apr 2019 • Couples
Very similar to the many other water towns. No boats however to hire. Lots of unique smells and sights. We visited the gardens and museums. We paid for the upgraded ticket, however I don’t think we needed to as they only checked at the gardens. It is free to walk around the streets if you wish.

A little surprise in the suburbs
Oct 2018
This site is not mentioned in the guidebook, and our tour guide didn't know about it. It was Tripadvisor that alerted us to it! A train ride and a 10 minute walk lead you to a little bit of history in the modern suburbs. The old houses have been restored and there are plenty of little shops, canals, and a temple. The highlight for us was the Tan Garden - I think it is actually nicer than the one in downtown Shanghai. Well worth the trip.

Nice place to visit
Oct 2018 • Solo
It's not very big place to explore but is good to have a few hour walk if you have time.
Must try the dumpling, it is very delicious and famous from this place.
Try to come during non holiday to avoid the crowds.

Another rebuilt water town
Jul 2018 • Solo
It's very nice and well put together but just feels like another reconstructed old tow with some pretty features, shops and restaurants all there to catch tourists. Worth a visit but not anything particularly special.

Delightful old town
Jun 2018 • Family
Nanxiang old town surprised me with its similarity to the bigger water towns outside Shanghai. The canals that run through the town are narrow but it creates the same atmosphere. The streets are lined with street food vendors and other types of shops. We tried the xiaolongbao there and it was delicious. Worth a visit!

Very cute area
May 2018 • Business
This is not just a road like some said. Although it is a small area but if you have a little spare time its worth popping over here. But its not a must see. I take cabs in china as they are very cheap. Its cute although smells from alot of food stalls.
