The town is so calm, away from the tourist crowds. Lovely place to walk around and sink in old times of China. Small shops with local crafts, food and souvenirs are welcoming you. Take a boat and experience the canals of the river and listen...More

This town is not very big as compared to Zhou zhuang water town, but is still worth visiting. Take a stroll down the shophouses and look at many of the local stuff on sale.

Nice to see the "old" China - very different to the tall high rises that appear everywhere else. Very nice to spend a few hours wandering around, people who live there still doing things the way things were done years ago. Plenty of little shops...More

We came here as we were in Kunshan looking at the possibility of moving to Kunshan. You get a real feel of a water town as it is still very authentic... & not commercial like Zhouzhuang. 65RMB to enter but you get to see all...More

There are probably few hundred ancient towns in China, and many of them are unknown, hidden and less developed., those seen in guidebooks are of course popular and thus crowded then more commercialized. Just visit one in your life time would be quite sufficient unless...More

We visited Jinxi as part of a tour. It is a water town on the Jinxi river near a fresh water lake. Commonly known as the Venice of China with boats providing the main form of transport. Do not eat there! There is no running...More
