Step back in time and experience traditional Chinese life


FengJing Ancient town is a typical water town in the Shanghai area. It is one of the best-preserved ancient water towns in Shanghai. A network of water ways covers the whole ancient town. There are 52 bridges in FengJIng, with the oldest Zhihe Bridge, having a history of more than 700 years.

From origin, Fengjing is an agricultural town, but in recent years a lot of painters choose to live and work here. There are some temples and old residences and most buildings are from the Ming and Qing era and are well maintained. There are lots of food choices with traditional foods to try. It gives you the opportunity to get a good insight in historical Chinese life.

FengJing has a very nice and relaxed atmosphere - so different from the hectic life in a city like Shanghai. It looks like time has stopped in FengJing. Daily activities and tasks are done "the old way" and there is no need to rush.

This is my standard Shore Excursion Tour, but if you like I can customize it to your wishes.
