We stayed in Shanghai for 4 days and I, being a Hongkonger, wanted to see a more authetic less touristy water towns. After doing research on 8 different water towns around Shanghai, we took the faraway one - the best decision. Hardly any tourist, real locals living there. It was a big town, costs 100yuan but worth it. Left early... More

I had a lot of illusions about visiting water towns near Hangzhou, but I was disappointed about Nanxun ,it was not what I expected. The tour to Nanxun was recommended by China Highlights tours instead of Wuzhen that I especially asked for. That day it was overcrowded with local tourists but not only that . Fine ,was Saturday morning and... More

It could be a relaxing day if you are not there during a Chinese holiday. What I saw through the crowds was nice. The maps for the area with directions in English were appreciated. The scenery was very photogenic even including the hordes of visitors. After one or two of the old houses, they all started to look the same.... More

It's a reasonable tourists spot for one day visit. It's suitable for family. The entrance ticket is 100 per person, free for children below 1.2m and old folks. Getting tickets online before arriving at destination is more worth it.

If you want to visit a water town, Nanxun is the place! Very nice, calm and quiet. Not many tourists unlike the other water towns. It is very easy to get here by Bus (from Shanghai) and only 5 min walk from Bus station. The boat tour is a must here. The food is great, and also visit the Dao... More

I already have visited several water-towns around the Shanghai area, but the Nanxun Town is in my opinion the most beautiful and picturesque of them all. While walking around Nanxun, we felt very relaxed because we did not see the enormous crowds of people that we normally see at water-towns. As can be seen from the the attached photos, Nanxun...

Our Shanghai agent arranged the trip, Cindy Shi, (Shanghai Far East Expeditions), great tours, helpful with trains, hotels and all places Asia. The Nanxun watertown is an excellent break from urban Shanghai. This quiet reconstructed old village... More

Nanxun is close to Shanghai. It is about 2 hours' drive away. We drove there for a weekend break in January 2016. At the time Shanghai was heavily polluted. It was a nice surprise to find out that Nanxun had blue sky that day. The old town is well preserved with historical buildings. Though there are some shops and cafes,... More
