Jul 26, 2018

Jinshanzui Fishing Village has been upgraded as a national 4A scenic spot by Shanghai tourism authority, according to the official website of Jinshan District government yesterday.

Nicknamed as "the last fishing village in Shanghai," Jinshanzui Fishing Village is a magnet for tourists seeking fresh seafood in the hamlet's restaurants and stalls.

The fishing village on Hangzhou Bay dates back more than 2,000 years ago. It is Shanghai's only ancient fishing hamlet that still serves its original purpose. Located in Shanyang Town, the village is home to more than 2,000 farmers, 150 fishermen and around 300 other residents engaged in seafood processing, trading and seafood catering.

Jinshanzhui means "mouth of Jinshan," stretching 6 kilometers along the scenic coastline of Hangzhou Bay.

In the future, Jinshanzui Fishing Village aims to become a national 5A scenic spot, the top level scenic spot in China.
