Someone's Moving Castle

Zhouzhuang (周庄) is China's oldest water town. It is located southeast of the city of Suzhou and south of Kunshan. Administratively, it is part of Kunshan which in turn is part of Suzhou, but it is located right on the border with Shanghai Municipality.
Like several other places, including Suzhou, Zhouzhuang has been described as the Venice of China because it has many picturesque canals. Be warned that there are a lot of tourists (although predominantly from China), which means high prices and lots of people hustling you to buy things. On holidays and weekends the old town will be so packed that it is difficult to move around. This aside it's worth the visit.
