One of the most picturesque water town around Shanghai. Not (yet) fully commercialized. Not (yet) overcrowded, even on weekends. Especially the small roads in the "2nd row" give an impression of the historic place. No entrance fee into the town, but only to some museums,...More

Whilst this is an ancient city, it has mostly been rebuilt, but retains much of its ancient character. There are plenty of places to walk through and explore and it's a great day out with shops and restaurants. The smell of stink tofu is pervasive!

Luzhi is a old water town where locals are still living in the town. Thus, it looks more realistic and not over commercial yet. It's also a good place to walk around. We enjoyed our afternoon there to walk around and have sightseeing. There's a...More
