  • We took a Holland America cruise that included 2 days and one night in Shanghai. The port in Shanghai was very near the Bund – so we were able to tour Shanghai on our own, but wanted to take in Zhujia...  more »
  • This time I went for the first time. From subway dashijie station exit 3, on Maple road from the bus stop is headed zhujiajiao went by bus. It seems to every 20 minutes. It is useful because it is close to public toilets, shops. It was about 10 o'clock on weekdays, quite a few people waiting for a ride. Tickets will be sold conductor on the bus. 12 Yuan. What road is crowded on this day took more than an hour. Please note from the bus terminal near to the village is a little hard to understand. The village is very good. There shops and restaurants, and has stunning views. To challenge the confidence of its people. People were even on weekdays, so difficult to holidays. Note it is because it gets crowded bus. A bit far, but is also a place you want to visit.

  • if it weren't for the commercialization, tourist trinkets, crowds, it's really beautiful and quaint. still I suppose it's worth a visit.
  • This is a well preserved old town that's very typical in this region in the past. This probably is the largest one among many of this sort of tourist attractions within the radius of a couple of hours of driving. It's wonderful to walk around the river/canal with shops along both sides, and browsing thru additional shops in the back streets. It worth the trip to see this location, and it will be enough of this sort of attractions. It gets really busy and crowded with local folks on weekends, so try schedule the visit on weekdays if possible.
  • Over commercialised tourist attraction. It's like an old shirt that has been patched and repatched not with matching cloth but with gaudy LEDs, faux fur and anything else that can be bought on the street.
  • Very pleasant..w movies ..you can almost learn Chinese characters thru figuring out the tv.
  • An ancient city since the 1700's. Nice architecture archives, canals & rivers, boat ride and traditional foods. It is very commercial though but all in all is worth visiting
