Zhujiajiao & Zhouzhang are classic water towns just over an hour out of Shanghai and are often referred to as ‘the Venice of the East’.
Old architecture, heritage homes and museums, cafes, handicrafts, and gondolas winding their way through tree-lined canals that light up at night… If you like photography you cannot miss this visit -
especially after sunset, when all the daytime tourists leave and the peaceful town is all yours.
Hello! Michelle here. I am American born and Spanish raised. As a wanderlust, I've been to around 28 countries so far, and feel immensely fortunate for all the people I have met, all the experiences, and all I've learned along the way. I have lived in Asia for 13 years, 4 years in Tokyo and the last 9 years in Shanghai. Having studied the history of China, in living the culture day to day, and driving ALL around, I have come to know Shanghai well and I would love nothing more than to share this amazing. fast-paced and fast changing city with you.
