Pickup at your hotel
Located in in the Qingpu District of Shanghai, Zhujiajiao is an ancient water town well-known throughout the country, with a history of more than 1700 years. Archaeological findings dating back 5,000 years have also been found. 36 stone bridges and numerous rivers line Zhujiajiao, and many ancient buildings still line the riverbanks today.
The village prospered through clothing and rice businesses. Today, old historical buildings such as rice shops, banks, spice stores and even a Qing dynasty post office can still be found. Zhujiajiao has many sights of historic interest, such as Fangsheng Bridge, Kezhi Garden and the Yuanjin Buddhist Temple.
However, recent overdevelopment threatens the village’s authenticity – most notably the current (2012) conversion of its people’s square into shops and the large-scale shopping and entertainment complexes being constructed in and around the Old Town.
