dWestern Suburbs is the Shanghai suburbs north and west of the river, including the districts of Baoshan [1], Jiading [2], Qingpu [3] and parts of Songjiang [4] and Minhang [5].

Get in[edit]

Metro lines 3, 1 and 7 will take you to Baoshan, line 9 cuts through the northern part of Minhang and continues through Songjiang, and line 11 leads to Jiading district. The Shanghai Hongqiao - Hangzhou high speed railway and Shanghai South - Hangzhou railway also serve Songjiang but are less convenient because service is much less frequent than on line 9.

See[edit][add listing]

Most attractions in this vast area are concentrated in Jiading and Songjiang districts.

Jiading[edit]

Jiading District lies at the northern end of line 11.

Songjiang[edit]

The city of Songjiang is divided in two by the Huhang expressway. The northern part is the new town, Songjiang Xincheng. It is easily accessible, being at the end of line 9. The southern part is the old town, where all historic sights are.

  • Songjiang Mosque‎ (松江清真寺; Sōngjiāng Gīngzhēnsì), 21 Gangbang Alley, Songjiang District (松江区缸甏巷21号; Sōngjiāngqū​ Gāngbàngxiàng​), +86 21 5782 3684. Built in the 14th century and claimed to be the oldest mosque in China and is still active.  edit
  • Xilin Pagoda (西林塔; Xīlín), Xita Lane, Zhongshan Middle Rd, Songjiang District (松江区中山西路). 700 years old pagoda and temple still very much active with lots of worshipers and only few tourists. The pagoda is presently being renovated, but still open to visitors.  edit

  • Thames Town (泰晤士小镇; Tàiwùshì xiǎo zhèn), (From Metro line 9 Songjiang Xincheng station take bus 12 or 16 east). 9AM-10PM. A very convincing English-style village, complete with pubs, cobbled lanes and a church. Only residents are missing, and empty stores and streets make the place looks like a film set even though it is very popular with newly-weds taking photos of themselves in front of the massive church. Definitely worth a visit for its eerie, unlikely atmosphere.  edit
