[Shanghai Venice] Zhujiajiao Ancient Town

The  water town, Zhujiajiao, which lies less than an hour’s drive from downtown Shanghai, reflects the ancient facade of the modern city. As early as 1700 years ago, villages came into existence in this place. With its collection of Ming and Qing dynasty architecture, Zhujiajiao offers a unique insight into the history of these picturesque artistic and commercial settlements, known only to exist in east China. A typical day tour features a pleasant boat cruise and stroll in the antique gardens and temples. Also, you cannot miss the traditional food there.

Admission: ¥60 for a through ticket, ¥5-20 for a single spot
