Remember to try their dumpling (zhong zhi). Very tasty. A lot of shop for you to buy souvenier and small eat. The downside is a bit far from main city of Shanghai

It took 2 hours in grueling traffic to arrive there and then another 2 hours to get back. It's one tiny waterway.. you take a 20 minute boat trip and then walk an "ancient" road with tacky tourist gifts and very smelly street food vendors...More

We managed to follow the instructions (see other posts) and the bus from Shanghai. It wasn't easy finding the bus but for $12rmb each way, it was worth the savings for us. There's really no need to book a tour, you can roam around your...More

Spent over half a day including boat ride. We visited in May and weather is perfect! The food was a tad salty for me.

History dates back over 1700 years and is one of the best preserved towns in the area with its old bridges, bubbling streams and willow trees. There are lots of cobbled narrow streets where you can visit the Qing Dynasty Post Office, a Chinese pharmacy...More

Hi Jess, How much did you pay for the cab fee to Zhujiajiao? Did you take a cab back to Shanghai? Is it easy to get a cab back?

My friend ordered the Chinese version of Uber, so I don't know the cost. Getting there was easier than getting back, because it is a more remote area than Shanghai so fewer of these kind of taxis were available, but we... More

I am looking for additional information regarding the evening program. What is the cost per person and the ending time? Is it necessary to stay in Zhujiajiao in order to see the evening program or does it end in time to catch transportation back to Shanghai? If it is necessary to stay in Zhujiajiao, what is the name of a recommended hotel and would that place be able to handle a student group of 6-12 people? Thank you.
