After being to several towns like this I would say this is nothing that special. Goods for sale such as clothes, souvenirs, toys and appliances. Also a lot of food places. The town is small. It's a nice little place though.

This town is as charming as Qibao Town but quieter, without tourists, fortunately. There is beautiful budhist temple worth to visit. Try the famous dumplings! After eating, walk to Guyi gardens. Wonderful place!

A week after visiting Zhujiajiao, which was packed with tourists and tourist-trap stores, we stumbled upon a smaller but less crowded water town: Nanxiang. There're two gardens, twin pagodas, and authentic xiaolongbao restaurants all over town. It's the only water town worth visiting in Shanghai.
