The Fengxian District of Shanghai
has a land area of 704.68 km sq (272.08 sq mi). It is known for its relative rusticity, as well as its beaches and ocean resorts. Bihai Jinsha (碧海金沙, lit. "Blue Sea, Gold Beach") is a common place for Shanghainese to spend their weekend.
Nanqiao is a major town in Fengxian district, which recent development has more than doubled in size. Of particular interest is Guhua Park which contains the "Three Women Temple" or "Ancestral Hall" (三女祠, Sān Nǚ Cí). During the Zhou dynasty, the King of Wu's three daughters hanged themselves rather than be caught by the King of Yue's soldiers. The town is also a short taxi ride from Xinghai Beach and its resorts, also slated for development. Nanqiao has a 1000-bed medical center, the Fengxian District Central Hospital, which is an all-discipline tertiary hospital.
