It was a scenic ride with a different viewpoint than when walking on the sidewalk or bridges – truly a Venice of Shanghai.

To make our way back to the entrance, we took a water taxi rowed by yours truly… just joking!

This area is also known for having the best “stinky tofu” (fermented tofu with a strong odor) so I had to try it. Unfortunately it was a little too stinky for me (as well as for the rest of the group).

Another well-known tradition of this town is the Fangsheng Bridge, which is the longest, largest and tallest stone bridge. At the foot of this bridge, people sell bags of fish so that buyers may set them free in the water. The tradition of freeing a fish at the Fangsheng Bridge supposedly brings luck to the one who frees the fish.

Today we spent half of our day at Zhu Jia Jiao, or otherwise known as the “Venice of Shanghai.” This water village had beautiful views wherever you looked and seemed to personify the essence of Chinese life.
