Wuzhen Old Water Town 乌镇水乡

After the unpleasant night at the camping site we arrived here

After spending the night at Wuzhen camping we decided to take the plunge for Wuzhen old water town and park in the parking area for the night. No other campings in the proximity so we stayed at the parking lot for the. Whopping 20CNY for 24h our security + shops and restaurants available.

Wuzhen Water Town, lying in the northern part of Tongxiang City, Zhejiang Province, is a typical ancient town in southern China. It is about 80 kilometers (50 miles) from both Hangzhou and Suzhou and 140 kilometers (87 miles) from Shanghai.

Decided for boondocking after the experience at the Wuzhen International camping. No other campgrounds in the nearby area.

We spent a full day here and it was amazing. All the narrow streets filled with vendors with food and coffee shops. Really enjoyment for the stomach and eyes. In the morning busloads of people start to come so better to be early at the gate for the avoidance of the bigger crowds.

Gate to the old town. Very old and still standing strong after many hundreds of years.

Taking a rest after long walks in the town. The narrow alleys with small shops make the walking interesting but need to sit down for a while.

Heading home from our first RV trip

After the two nights spent in the Wuzhen area, we needed to head home again. For sure we will continue the travels in China by RV or caravan. This trip was somehow a lesson learned.

We got good hints from the neighbors at the parking lot about additional accessories good to have and the best was the application to be used in the future to find good places for camping and rental.

Woyouzijia (窝友自驾) app.

There is a very good app in China for travelers.
Unfortunately only in Chinese. Name is Woyouzijia (窝友自驾). You can rent company/private RVs and check for camping/boondocking locations from it. No web page is available, only as an app for Android or IOS
