Quite picturesque: stroll across ancient bridges and along winding canals. An interesting insight into (as yet) fairly unspoilt village life - although some of the locals seemed a bit resentful of tourists; don't like being photographed unless you hand over money! Unless you can speak...More

I have been to this watertown (one of many around Shanghai) and have been left pleasantly surprised. It is not big (about 3 hours are enough to wonder around) and it is lived, therefore it is a lot more authentic than you may think. Being...More
