country side near shanghai

My husband and I will be spending a week in Shanghai in September, and were wanting a nice day trip to the country side, or anywhere to have a break from the city. Any suggestions please.

Hi,

you mustn't miss the city god temple, Chenghuangmiao. Used to be a place for traditional Chinese style of shopping.

drive an hour you will get to Zhujiajiao or Zhouzhuang or Wuzhen, they are the old villiages close to Shanghai city.

When you are in the city, go to the stadium, there's a super large travel information center next to the stadium and buses go out to thoses places every 20 minutes. More importantly, people there all speak English so you will easily find everything you need.

Hope this helps.

The shanghai nearby water towns like Xitang, Suzhou&Tongli are nice for day /overngiht trips to escape from the city. If your date flexible, try to avoid visiting it during the weekends when bigger crowds usually happens.

We visited Xitang and really enjoyed it but any water town would be good to visit. We also enjoyed Hangzhou, I know it's a city but we really enjoyed our time on the lake there.

Moganshan is 60 km from Shanghai and is a nice mountain for hiking and relaxing.
