      Zhujiajiao Water Town near Shanghai is a popular tourist location. People go there to see the old buildings, shop, and eat in the many restaurants and coffee shops.

Boats are still very much part of the charm of the place. Now young people and those who want to unwind after a day’s work go there from Shanghai to relax.
