About the Event
Fengjing is a beautiful water town in Shanghai, bordering Jiangsu and Zhejiang. Compared to other famous ancient towns, it is more authentic and less touristy. The Painting Village close by is home to Chinese Folk Painting. The unsophisticated yet powerful work from the local villagers conveys passion for rural life and their understanding of the world.
We will take a bus from the city and drive for 1.5 hours to Qingpu. After choosing our bikes, we will start pedaling in the countryside. Our first stop is the Farmer’s Painting Village. We will visit the art galleries and studios and may also have a chance to meet artists at work and share thoughts with them. Before we get back to the bikes, we will visit the Polish Upside-down House. It can make you a little dizzy and disoriented, but the photos should be a fun experience The second part of the ride is a short one; we pedal straight to the restaurant, located in the center of the ancient town by the canal. After a satisfying lunch to congratulate ourselves on finishing the bike ride, have time to wander around and take a boat ride to fully explore the charming little town before returning to Shanghai in the late afternoon.
Cycling distance is 18 kilometers.
