Zhujiajiao, with a history of about 1, 700 years, is the best-preserved ancient water town among the four ancient towns in Shanghai. Situated forty seven kilometers away from Shanghai in Qingpu, Zhujiajiao is accessible by tourist bus.

Bridges in the town are distinctively in different shapes and styles, from wooden to stone to marble. Fangsheng Bridge is the longest, largest and tallest stone bridge among them.
Scenic spots include the Zhixi Canal, Kezhi Garden, Grand North Street and Fangsheng Bridge, offering you the chance to feel the tranquil life.

We had 2 exceptionally memorable tours with Liam - a Shanghai highlights night tour and a day tour of Zhujiajiao. Liam suggested both itineraries which were appropriate for the time we had. He has an extensive knowledge of history and culture & an engaging personality which made our time with him very informative and entertaining - we'd recommend that you consider Liam for you Shanghai tourguide.
