Zhujiajiao Ancient Town Scenic Area was listed as one of Shanghai's four famous historical and cultural towns in 1991. The town itself is simple and elegant. The small Caogang River divides the town into the northern and southern sections, and residential houses of the Ming and Qing Dynasties line up along the water canal. The town has been called the “Venice of Shanghai.” In recent years, cafes, bars, book shops, postcard shops, and other hipster shops have opened, attracting many musicians, travelers, and young artists to the site.

After almost 9 years in the cosmopolitan metropolis of Shanghai, it still amaze me that l always find some new corner to explore and the best part of it...all conveniently connected by subway, a city escape without actually leaving the city! The old town of Zhujiajao 朱家角 is just what you need to immerge yourself in a totally new picturesque atmosphere, a ancient water town. Simply walk around, cross the many well preserved bridges and taste some of the local snacks! 📸 #momentsmission scenic and photography spot
Ⓜ️ + 🚶♂️ line 10 till Hongqiao Railway Station and then change to line 17 till Zhujiajiao station and walk around 15 min to the old town.

After a full day of walking around the Ancient town ,eating and a great fish spa massage .You can walk a little bit out of the Ancient Town and grab a drink at a relatively hidden small bar T&F Lucky.This is exactly what you need after a long day in the sun .I found the drinks reasonable ,but the tequila shot I ordered was expensive,48¥ ,that was the most expensive tequila shot I’ve had in Shanghai .It is very chilled and ideal for relaxing before heading home.
Getting There - If you are traveling from Shanghai you can take metro Line 17, the station is Zhujiajiao. Follow the signs and you will find the water town, it is not far from the station.
Attractions - Kezhi Yuan garden where you can make amazing photos. The ticket is 20RMB
You can see different types of bridges in this town, mostly stone bridges.
You can take a boat (gondola) and see the town from the other perspective. I recommend this. The price for the boat is from 80 to 150RMB , depends where do you want to go.
If you are in love with art you can visit Museum of the watercolors art, there you can find some fantastic paintings. Ticket is 30RMB.
Shopping - Souvenirs, food and coffee places are all over the small pediastrian streets.
This was a really interesting experience.
