Easily accessible from Shanghai. Lots of the shops are food related, however, nice just to have a wander around. Take a boat ride and then relax in one of the bars along the water and take in the sights.

Shanghai is surrounded by Water Cities. This one is easily accessible from subway train in downtown Shanghai. It will take about 1 hour. Lots of venders along the narrow streets of the main canal and many restaurants/coffee houses. A few impressive bridges.

We visited the town on a Monday, therefore it was not crowded at all. Many nice restaurants and cafes. The atmosphere was very relaxed. Definitely worth a visit!

Maybe I am a bit jaded because of my recent visit to Xitang, but I thought Zhujiajiao was the poorer cousin to the former. Don't get me wrong; this was still a great place to come to, partly for the cultural experience, partly for the...More

This is probably the most authentic water town in Shanghai, about 50km from the city centre. It is a tourist place, that goes without saying, but unlike others it is alive with food and locals.

As they told you the best solution is to go by metro, line 2 or 10 to Hongqiao Station and there to take the line 17. Zhujiajiao is the stop before the last of that line

I went there by subway. Very easy. Get on line 2 to Hongqiao railway station. Then transfer to line 17.
