Nestled between factories and Shanghai's Pilot Free-Trade Zone lies a picturesque Dutch-inspired town. Gaoqiao New Town boasts an architectural style reminiscent of Zaanse Schaans in Amsterdam and is more well-maintained than most other European towns in Shanghai. Admittedly, there isn't much to do in the "Dutch side" of Holland Village, but the cheery, candy-coloured buildings are beautiful backdrops for those #instaworthy photos.
