Athough I found the water village Zhu Jia Jiao to be a bit of a tourist trap, it sure resulted in a lot of pretty pictures! Or what do you guys think?
Some info about the town (from travelchinaguide.com) "Located in a suburb of Shanghai city, Zhujiajiao is an ancient water town well-known throughout the country, with a history of more than 1700 years. Covering an area of 47 square kilometers, the little fan-shaped town glimmers like a bright pearl in the landscape of lakes and mountains."
I am personally not sure if I would refer to the city as a 'glimmering bright pearl' but then again, I am not a writer for a traveling page... I think this city is worth a visit though as it is kind of cute in its own, little way and also... it is way cheaper to go for a boat ride on the canals of Zhu Jia Jiao than the ones in Venice :)
Ps... enjoyed these pix?? Here's my other photo essay about the Children of Daxi.
I post a new photo essay every weekend.
