Zhujiajiao: Located 47 kilometers away from Shanghai, Zhujiajiao is a typical ancient water town in Qingpu, south of the Yangtze River, with over 1,000 years history. Zhujiajiao, known as “The Venice of Shanghai”, features beautiful waterways, arched stone bridges, ancient streets paved with stone, and more than 10,000 houses dating back to Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties.

There are altogether 36 bridges in the town in different shapes and styles, from wooden to stone to marble and each has a name and possibly a story. The most famous two are the five-arch Fangsheng Bridge built in 1571 in the Ming Dynasty and Lang Bridge, the only wooden bridge in this town. courtsy:China tour online
