After being to several towns like this I would say this is nothing that special. Goods for sale such as clothes, souvenirs, toys and appliances. Also a lot of food places. The town is small. It's a nice little place though.

A week after visiting Zhujiajiao, which was packed with tourists and tourist-trap stores, we stumbled upon a smaller but less crowded water town: Nanxiang. There're two gardens, twin pagodas, and authentic xiaolongbao restaurants all over town. It's the only water town worth visiting in Shanghai.
A short walk south west from Nanxiang metro station (line 11) this water town is much quieter than others in Shanghai. Take exit 2 and follow Zhongjia lu down until Guyiyaun lu then turn right and immediately left down Heping street, a pedestrian street running...More
