If you are looking for the really historical and multi-cultural old town around Shanghai, you should think about Nanxun, it is absent from the main tourist trails. Narrow lanes, sun-dappled pavilions, spacious courtyards, exquisite gardens and the ancient canals have been preserved.
Different from other towns, Nanxun is unique in well combination of Chinese antiquity and western architecture, it is regarded as the representing place where the riches in old times assembled, where there are old streets and water channels, exquisite gardens, Anhui-style residential houses, classical western-style architectures and abundant sceneries, where it was said that she had been as rich as the Qing government.
The best part of the water town area is the south-west, where you can escape the crowds on even the busiest days and find trees arching over the peaceful water – we like the tranquil Little Lotus Garden, a grand former residential house with a small lake at the back, and the Jiayetang Library, home to a large collection of ancient tomes and tree-covered grounds, where locals sip tea and play cards beside the water.
