Over thousand years old Qibao Ancient Town near Shanghai, China, is ancient Chinese styled shopping lanes in between traditional river side houses. The narrow shopping lanes are always hectic and crowded with people snacking away on local specialities. It feels like Qibao is running a fair every day.
The Puhuitang river, which is running across town, brings a tranquil, authentic 'water town charm' over this old town.
If you step out of the crowd and stand on one of the Puhuitang River bridges, you will see the black roofed river side houses with their turn-up eaves mirroring in the water right under you - a scenery that draws me into an ancient water town daydream every time I visit.
