The Venice of China?

I went on a weekend trip to Shaoxing, a quaint and picturesque water town a few hours from Shanghai. It's resident's call it the Venice of China, although few people travel the canals by boat because it's a very walkable city. The town has some excellent specialities and historic sights, but is unfortunately surrounded by sprawling industrial centres and factories.
