We took the metro to Qibao station and walked about 10 mins to this ancient water town. Entrance was free and the alleys beside the river was congested with people. Very touristy with lots of shops and people.

Small and compact. Not much sights too see but makes for a nice stroll for some souvenirs and good food of which there are lots of. There is a shadow puppet show at 1pm at the museum.

You need to make sure you add this to your sights to check off the list when visiting Shanghai!!!

Oldest Watertown in the city filled with people, shops, fancy tea houses, and a true hustle!

There is a stunning comb shop and jewelry shop which I suggest you pop in.

But walk about and enjoy:-))

Went with a family friend who I discovered later does tours (lisa_haiyun@hotmail.com) which was very helpful as I ended up in places that were not frequented by many tourists with resulting very good prices. Some of the silver work is truly beautiful I thought. And the silver smiths are working right there in the shop. Also found some gorgeous silk (think it is real silk - a lot of the labeled stuff might not be especially from the more touristy areas) scarves too.

We came here as this is the nearest old waterway town from Pudong. There are a few others choices that is about 3hrs away, but since we have an evening flight to catch this is the best choice.

We left pudong hotel at 9am and reach there around 10:30am after getting traffic jammed up. The place is really beautiful and we took many good pics. I have my European friends with me and they are probably the only Caucasian along the streets so there are many locals. We bought several stuff and even tried the bug food. The bbq squid was one of the juiciest I had and you should try.
We had lunch at one of the riverside restaura and the fish head soup is their in-house special which did not disappoint us. We finally reach the other gate and I got out at 3pm, in time for my travel to check in pudong airport at 5pm for my 7pm flight. It’s a worthwhile trip even on a last day in Shanghai.

Busy streets and many shops for souvenirs. The highlight is the numerous food stalls with anything you can imagine. Our friend ate a scorpion on a stick. Must go here if you visit Shanghai

Great short trip out of busy Shanghai. Went on a Sunday and it was not too crowded. It was cool seeing the ancient Chinese bridges like you see in the movies. We did not eat here because the street food is sometimes very unique and buggy lol youll see what i mean. Went to the nearby mall instead and chilled in the A/C and ate at their food republic for cheap prices. If youre more adventurous then definitely try the street food!

If you want to visit a traditional Chinese water town without leaving the city of Shanghai, Qibao is the place to go. It's close to a metro station as well as many bus stops. Can be packed during weekends and holidays, although most people there seem to be chinese. They have great xiaolongbao and other tasty street food.

Went to this small ancient town and had some of the traditional deli from Shanghai. The streets were filled with locals looking for the best snack to grab. Difficulties at choosing the right snack? Just follow the queue.

Visited Qibao in the Fall. It was hot and sticky and crowded, but the street food made it worth it. Had lamb on a stick & some amazing fried dumplings.

The old town itself is very small, but is full of cool souvenirs and cheesy knick knacks. A bit of an authentic tourist trap, if you will. It doesn't take long to see most of the town-- I think my friends & I spent about an hour, perhaps and hour and a half counting the time we spent eating. It's easy to get to from the Metro, and walking distance to malls, shops, etc.

Overall, a really cool, cheap way to see "China" stuff in Shanghai in half a day or less.
