Welcome to Zhujiajiao

Welcome to Zhujiajiao, an ancient water village (about 1,700 years old) on the outskirts of Shanghai. The village is built on a series of waterways very much like Venice and is known for its 36 stone bridges.

 

When I say Zhujiajiao is on the outskirts of Shanghai, I really mean the outskirts. It took us about 45 minutes on a bus with the bus driver literally holding down his horn the entire time (and almost running over several smaller cars) to get to.

 

Anyway, walking around Zhujiajiao was quite the experience!
