With a history dating back over 1,700 years, Zhujiajiao is full of lovely canals and waterways, small alleys, picturesque bridges, and ancient buildings, many from the Ming and Qing dynasties.

The Basics
The best way to explore Zhujiajiao is on foot and by boat. Many guided tours will feature both a walk through the town, with stops at top attractions like the Khezi Gardens and Fangsheng Bridge. A gondola cruise down the canals is a another popular option. A trip to Zhujiajiao can also be combined with other attractions in Shanghai, such as the Oriental Pearl Tower and a museum, and activities such as a dinner cruise or an acrobatic show. Opt for a private tour to personalize your trip to Zhujiajiao with other must-see attractions on your list.
