Water Towns Travel Guide

There are a number of traditional water towns around Suzhou and Shanghai, each with their own traditional characteristics. Popular towns include Tongli, Zhouzhuang, and Zhujiajiao. Stroll down historic cobbled streets, take a boat ride, browse little shops, and see historic sights. Enjoy lunch or a drink in small local restaurants along the canals.

Most of the water towns can be seen as a day trip from Shanghai, or as a stop between Shanghai and Suzhou.
