The Yangtze River, the Chinese call it the Chang Jiang (Changjiang) - the Long River, is famous for its magnificent gorges depicted on many Chinese scrolls. But along the banks of the third-longest river in the world are also primitive rural towns, grim concrete cities, and green terraced farms - all the elements that form China's backbone. The Yangtze River ends its 4,000 mile journey at the port city of Shanghai, where it empties into the China Sea.
Millennium-old Zhujiajiao water town, the Venice of Shanghai, offers a glimpse into the ancient Yangtze Delta life. An hour's drive from the People's Square in downtown Shanghai, the 1,000-year-old town, the 'Pearl Stream' by the lakeside of Dianshan Lake, is built around Dianpu Creek, a branch of the Huangpu River, in the south of the Yangtze River. The ancient, historical waterside town with its picturesque waterways, arched bridges, ancient architectural structures and old stone paved streets is a charming place to visit.
