Upon arrival, you will first take a boat cruise around this water town, Zhujiajiao is a water town with a history of more than 1,700 years. Endowed with another elegant name - 'Pearl Stream' - the little town is the best-preserved among the four ancient towns in Shanghai. Unique old bridges across bubbling streams, small rivers shaded by willow trees, and houses with courtyards attached all transport people who have been living amidst the bustle and hustle of the modern big city to a brand-new world full of antiquity, leisure and tranquility. Zhujiajiao is one of the nearest water towns away from the urban area of Shanghai. Its traditional atmosphere is completely different from Shanghai city. If you want to relax yourself and learn some exquisite water town culture, Zhujiajiao is a good option.
It is said that to visit Zhujiajaio without seeing the bridges means that you have not really been to Zhujiajiao at all!
Bridges in the town are distinctive and old, built during Ming and Qing Dynasties. Among over 30 featured ancient stone bridges in the town, Fangsheng Bridge gains the greatest fame which is also the largest five-hole stone bridge in regions south of Yangtze River.
