We did a day trip here from Shanghai and had a wonderful time on the canals. No they are not very clean though we did find locals doing their laundry in the canal! Nice boat ride, very peaceful then we did a short walking/shopping tour.

Our tour guide allocated us an hour only which definitely was a mad rush around for photo shoots and shopping and trying some of the snacks. Wish to return here for a whole day that's for sure

Although the actual town is free to enter there are tickets sold either individually or as a package deal for the sites, several of these are not worth the bother and as the place lacks signposts not too easy to find, the Ancient Medicine Shop...More
