If you are planning to go to Luodian, remember to have a look at the North European Town. Outside the old city of Luodian is an (assumed) replica of a just as old Swedish town (called Sigtuna). This is part of the project One City Nine Towns, with eight other foreign inspired towns all around Shanghai. Just get off the bus a few stops before Luodian proper and you will be there. Apart from the Luodian Old Town which is just a part of the whole town, Luodian itself could be worth a visit as well as an example of a typical modern Chinese small town.
