Fengxian district of Shanghai has a land area of 687.70 km² and population 514 400 as of 2001. It is famous for its beaches and ocean resorts.
Nanqiao is a major town in Fengxian district and makes a pleasant day trip from Shanghai. Of particular interest is Guhua Park which contains the "San Nu Temple" (three women temple). During the Zhou dynasty, the King of Wu's three daughters hung themselves rather than be caught by the King of Yue's soldiers. The town is easily navigable on foot, the people are friendly and there are plenty of restaurants. The town is also a short taxi ride from Xinghai Beach which has a new Howard Johnson Hotel and is set for major development.
Nanqiao Town can be reached by catching the subway to Xinzhuang and then a public bus (3.5rmb) to Nanqiao.
