It's a hike to get there, and even though it's for the tourists, it was enjoyable and plenty of variety to keep all types intrigued. Worth a trip if you have a spare day.

This is a charming town about 1.5 hours from Shanghai. Make sure you take the tour offered by Gray Line Tours. They will pick you up at your hotel and drop you back off.

Interessting place. A "water city" around 1.5hour drive from Shanghai. There is a bus schedule from Shanghai. You're advised to get there relatively early especially on weekend and holiday as thousands of local people will be there. Good to stay for four (4) hours. Plenty...More

Best selling point for Zhujiajiao is that you can get there by the Metro... Line 17. Cheap and fairly quick to get to. Short walk from the brand spanking new station to the water town. Ignore all the offers of lifts, it's a 10 min...More

Place is crowded with Chinese tourists on weekends wherever you go. The tourist information shop sells a ticket for 80 yuan which gives entrance to 8 locations plus a boat ride which I consider good value. The boat ride is a very short ride. Two...More
