We found that there are probably many more buses that depart from Shanghai general long distance bus station (1666 Zhongxing road) and the South (666 Shilong road). We are in fact in the first leg we tried the bus in the South, but at 8.30 am we were told that the only one left in the afternoon. They recommended then to go to a nearby location to the destination, where we would find another bus to Zhouzhuang, and they did. It took us roughly the same time and 4 yuan more per head. Instead we took the direct return which took us into the Zhongxing. To arrive in the old part of town you have to walk 20 minutes to the bus station. The entrance fee is 100 yuan. The country is indeed quite commercial, but who still lives there's got to be able to make a living. Despite this appearance the country really worth visiting, just because, next to any features stalls takes their everyday life in a neighborhood somewhat unique.show original
