I will be in Shanghai for a conference and have only one day free to walk around. Besides those city highlights, I would like to take an excursion to the Water Town nearby Shanghai. Is Zhujiajiao the easiest to get to?

Since your free time in Shanghai is so tight. I think Zhujiajiao Water Town is the best choice because Zhujiajiao is the nearest watertown around Shanghai. You can make a round trip within half day.
