Qibao Ancient Town is one of the oldest and most famous towns in China. With two rivers flowing through, Qibao Town enjoys great geographical advantages.
Each of the two waterways has its own special characteristics. Unlike some of the other water towns near Shanghai, these riverfronts tend to have a more relaxed feeling as they aren�t as touristy as the others.
Qibao is more than just a living fossil of ancient Chinese conurbation and urban planning. The old town with its narrow alleyways, arched bridges, and canals is one of the most important historical sites in Shanghai.
