It’s very authentic in setting, but things are expensive there. Car park is about 15 min walk from entrance. Town has lots of eateries and B&B. A boat ride will give you great experience of the water town.

Zhouzhuang is larger than Luzhi town, but equally enchanting. A little more commercial but it is up to you to find the quiet coners - and there are plenty. Less commercial than Tongli and Suzhou though. Just take your time to explore and look at...More

You could combine Suzhou and Zhouzhang. Travel from Shanghai to Suzhou and stay overnight, travel onto Zhouzhang the next morning, visit the water town then and return to Shanghai the following morning
