Wuzhen Water Town

There are a number of attractive water towns within reach of Shanghai, providing a tempting day-trip or over night trip out of the city.

The pros and cons that will dictate your choice of which one to pick, require you to balance the following to suit your preferences: easy transport from Shanghai; crowd levels; touristy-ness; cost; physical beauty; size; activities.

On my trip to Asia earlier this year, I chose Wuzhen for an overnight stay.  I was there out of season and mid-week, so the crowds weren’t too overwhelming. And it’s a beautiful spot (better when the sun shines) with plenty to keep you busy.  However, I have to say that prices are high and the food is below average.

Here’s a little selection to give you a feel for the tradition and beauty of the place.
