I have to say that this was nicest of the water towns I visited on my trip. Compared to Tonglizhen and Mudu it did not have any crowds and it was very easy to navigate with a number of interesting museums!

One of the most picturesque water town around Shanghai. Not (yet) fully commercialized. Not (yet) overcrowded, even on weekends. Especially the small roads in the "2nd row" give an impression of the historic place. No entrance fee into the town, but only to some museums,...More

We like to avoid the usual tourist route, so I was happy to learn about Luzhi and to go through the trouble to get there. Because it’s off the tourist route, you have to find your way there. It’s not out of the way, but...More
