Xitang, 🇨🇳 China Welcome to enter with me in Xitang, a charming water town crisscrossed by nine rivers near Shanghai! This city has more than 2000 years history. Its typical architecture with little lanes and canals will charm you. The city hasn't been developed so much in modern time and kept its ancestral loveliness.
A lovely but overly sanitised place. Far out from city and it is not easy to get to. You are better off going to Zhujiajiao.
This is by far the most peaceful place I've ever visited in China. It's a combination of peaceful, lively, beautiful and mesmerizing. Small cute bars with awesome live musics and astonishing ancient structure and smell of fabulous food ... it's just amazing. I recommend this more than other water towns around Shanghai.
Chinese old/new town. Some nice areas and some crazy "nightclubs", the hole town drops dead at 12 at night
Nice place but they charge for entry 100 RMB.
