Thames Town Description

Tucked away near Songjiang Xincheng (Metro Line 9), the satellite settlement of Thames Town opened in 2006 as part of Shanghai’s One City, Nine Towns program, with low-rise apartments and gated complexes designed to house 10,000 residents.

As its name suggests, the design of Thames Town is inspired by England, with a main square, red telephone booths, streets named High, Oxford, and Queen and, of course, its very own man-made Thames river. It has turned out an ideal place for a quiet afternoon stroll and wedding photos.

Directions: Take Line 9 on the metro to Songjiang Xincheng station. Hop in a taxi to Taiwushi Xiaozhen (4 kilometers)
