Zhujiajiao, the day’s destination, is a local treasure located in a suburb of Shanghai city. It’s one of the partially restored watertowns on the banks of Dianshan Hu lake typified by the many small waterways that crisscross the village like main street and broadway with a history of more than 1700 years. A perfect short cycling trip to explore quiet, hidden away village architectures, waterways, lake side roads and less visited pathes through the country side.
Points of Interest:
- Explore the winding waterways, and peaceful farmland that's been around since 1700
- Beautiful ancient stone bridges
- Rural villages and local communities
- Local culture, canal locks
We leave Shanghai early in the morning by private transport to Zhujiajiao. We then cycle about 25km through the country side to Zhujiajiao watertown,explore the town, her tranditional waterfront houses, quiet streets, the ancient waterway and stone bridges either on foot or by bicycle. Where we explore the shop-lined alley ways on foot and take a boat trip along ancient bridges and traditional Jiangnan style water-front houses, and then enjoy a lunch in one of the water-front restaurants.
