Took the subway out to the Zhujiaijao, which took a little over an hour. Very easy to use the subway from People's Square. Wide variety of food, shops and souvenirs. Highly recommend!

Oriental Venice, better visit in the morning before crowds gather, good to walk from the metro station. Should definitely try this red pork dish they sell at the village, it’s super delicious!

I spent there some nice hours from 8:30 am onwards. Funny is the haunted house (10Y). And lovely the ambient.

It is such a beautiful place - I read online that we should give this place 2-3 hours but that might not be enough if you want to cover all 8 spots in the tickets you purchased. We only managed to cover 4. It starts...More

It gets crowded and is not the best "water town", perfect if you want to take a friend for a trip but by far not the best place to go in China. Just an option but not a must.

Shopping is what you expect anywhere tourists go in China, Most of the items are made in China but not in a fun crafty sort of way

But still like a tourist mall. Very quaint and picturesque capturing a lifestyle long gone and hardly preserved throughout China as it modernizes and tears down all the similar spots making room for the 1.4 billion making up the population.

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
