Near Shanghai, China (bus tours leave from the Stadium)
  • It is amazing to walk beside the creek and see people still moving about and living in this old village
  • While it is more crowded and touristy than the other ancient villages, it is also the best developed in terms of activities, frequency of transportation, and food available for visitors
  • I prefer some of the other villages (especially Wu Zhen, Nan Xun, and Xi Tang) for their quieter atmosphere
  • But if a visitor to Shanghai were to only see one, I think Zhou Zhuang might be the best to see

      Zhou Zhuang is one of the ancient water villages near Shanghai, China. Because of its proximity to Shanghai, it is the most popular tour destination of all of the villages.

      The tour bus, which leaves from the Stadium near Xu Jia Hui (or can be caught earlier from the Hong Kou Stadium), is nothing elaborate, but it is comfortable enough.


      It takes about an hour to get to Zhou Zhuang.

      The price of the bus ticket includes all the entry fees for the various attractions once you reach the village.

      Zhou Zhuang is a well-preserved village in the ancient Chinese style.

      Many of the buildings have been around for 1000 years.

      It is amazing to walk beside the creek ...


      • and see people still moving about and living in this old village.

        The boats that move up and down stream carrying tourists do much to bring back the feeling of old China.

        I have been to Zhou Zhuang several times.

        While it is more crowded and touristy than the other ancient villages, it is also the best developed in terms

        of activities, frequency of transportation, and food available for visitors.

        It is certainly worth the day trip and the modest fee charged (approximately US$20/person).

        I prefer some of the other villages (especially Wu Zhen, Nan Xun, and Xi Tang) for their quieter atmosphere.

        But if a visitor to Shanghai were to only see one, I think Zhou Zhuang might be the best to see.
