Has it's own Shanghai metro stop so it may not be the best of the Shanghai water towns but it's easy to get to via Line 9. Picturesque central canal with touristy shops on both sides, maybe just a half day trip.

Another memorable experience is visiting this very ancient town in the midst of the modern Shanghai. Everything in here is OLD from the building structures, bridge, gazebos, stores, souvenirs, etc. I visited on a Sunday which was full of people and chaotic. Better to go...More

Good to spend an hour in Qibao Ancient Town as it's on the same route to visit Zhujiajiao Water Town. This place is less crowded but just as commercialized. Good stop to view the architecture and surrounding areas.
