Went to this water town with my ex-boss and husband as my farewell 🙂 I am a lucky girl, my boss and colleagues were all sweethearts. This is only a 90min drive from downtown Shanghai. Great for a get away from the urban jungle. Note, this is not an escape from the crowds. This is still China with its 1.4 billion people.
They have quite a few ‘farm’ style local restaurants over there. The below are the dishes that we tried out.
Drunken chicken (cold), House aubergine with mince, Stir fried noodles, House omelette (spring onions & onion), Classic ma po tofu. My favourite dish is the large photo – tofu.
How to get here?
Zhujiajiao, Shanghai 朱家角
Bus / by car
I ordered a car (with driver) via ctrip.com. I guess uber can also do it? It is a 60-90min drive from central Shanghai. We had a 6 seater car for 8 hours and it was around USD80

Hey, Joyce! You can call me Monica 🙂
😉 okay, Monica
Stunning photos! I love the calligraphy shot too. Thanks for the info about renting a car. Stored for future reference!
Thanks, Leannenz 😀 good to know that it is useful information 😉
lovely pictures and very interesting. It looks lovely. More likely Venice inspired from here. Why do we compare everything to Europe, it has its own identity
Thanks for reading, Mukul. The locals told me a Chinese word for the place, the meaning was ‘water town’. I don’t know how to translate it, so Venice was the word that I used. Venice and Zhujiajiao are unique.
your post is great and that is important.
Love the calligraphy!
