I understand there is a tour-bus centre in Shanghai with tours to "water towns." What are water towns and which ones are the best to see? Are these day trips?

Thank you very much.

Re: pwlewis

You're talking about Shanghai Stadium, I presume.
Please do a Google for "water village"/"water town", or specific place names like "Zhouzhuang", "Tongli", "Xitang", "Wuzhen" etc. These are the most famous water villages. My top favourites would be Tongli and Xitang.
Yes, these are day trips. However I prefer to do these as overnight trips so that you get to experience the more "local" side of it.

Thank you Ellyse. You are really good! I have read many of your answers and I admire your attention to detail!

Thanks again!

No problem, you're welcome. :) If you have any more queries, you might want to email me at -- put "VirtualTourist" and your own username (eg pwlewis) in the subject line, thanks.

I think that Ellyse's suggestions are good. I have seen Zhouzhuang and Wuzhen, but will have to see Tongli and Xitang in the future. All of these towns show an older version of China where rivers and canals were "main streets" of towns.

One thing to be aware of - the tour buses that I have taken will often spend quite a bit of time at tourist shopping locations. (On my day trip to Wuzhen, almost 1 hour in the morning and another hour in the afternoon, while only spending 3 1/2 hours at Wuzhen.) If you are on a tight budget than maybe you will accept this. If not, consider getting a private tour arrangement and then you can set the agenda.

If your have limited time, you might find it makes sense to see just one of these towns, as they have many similarities.

Best regards..Brad

Travel Tips for Shanghai

A Simple Trick to Get the Best Price

by gaolei about Xiangyang Market

Xiangyang market is a bargain hunter's paradise if you can bargain effectively. One thing you can do to gain an advantage is to take advantage of a Chinese superstition. Chinese feel they must get the first sale of the day out of the way so that other sales will flow in. The result is they will do anything to get the first sale.

It works like this. First, you have to do get to the market early in the day, before 10:00 AM. Look at the thing you want to buy, but don't look too anxious. Ask the price and they will say, how much you want to pay? Say you are just looking and you are not too interested in buying the article. Start to walk away and watch the price drop!

I was offered an LED flashlight for 120 RMB. After using my method, the price fell to 35 RMB. The seller didn't make much money, but he got that first crucial sale of the day.

Wow! Foie Gras and Lobster Carpaccio

by rugro about Luna

We went here for our New Years Eve celebration 2004/2005. All I can say is WOW! They served us a delicious meal. Lobster carpaccio and truffles, goose liver, veal and a nice dessert. Price? 388 RMB (without wine). This was a really nice experience. We drank a couple of bottles of champagne also and the evening was a hit! Also they have their own house band called Frictions. They really rock. Guitarist playing Hendrix tunes with his teeth and all!! Goose liver.... God da#¤!!! This really melted on the tongue... Wow again! Very tasty. Just go here if you get the chance.

The old center of Shanghai

by Luchonda

A statue - showing that our children will bear this world !
This older part is so nice to visit - not only the thea house .A little bit further there is a small
"take away restaurant" - a very old building you will easily recognise by the steam coming out of the dirty windows.
Popular are the "Flour balls" cooked or steamed in a special sauce

Shanghai History Exhibition

by Willettsworld

This exhibition is located within the bowels of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Pudong. On display are some nice old cars including one of the first Volkswagen Santana's which you see everywhere in China, some local cultural exhibits such as a wedding sedan chair, tri-shaws, traditional houses and shops and models of buildings and street scenes including a very good one of The Bund. There's a huge display of model houses and buildings that were built by the Europeans.

Admission: Y35.
