Shanghai has had many pleasant surprises for us ... one is that it is laced with canals and there are several traditional water villages within fairly easy reach. Friday, we decided to hop on the Metro and take a spontaneous trip to this one, Qibao. We had very little time there, but absolutely loved it and are looking forward to heading back when we have more than 45 minutes to explore!
After getting off the Metro, we had no idea where to go to find the actual water village ... we didn't have a map of the area and just started wandering in what seemed like the right direction. After a few blocks, we found this and figured we were getting close!
