August is summer and very hot. However, Huangzhou close to Shanghai is a very popular place to visit

water towns near Shanghai are quite nice.

these include Zhouzhuang, Zhujiajiao,Wuzhen, and Tongli.

You can go to Nanjing too. Its not really countryside but the War Museum is really eye opening. 1 day there is sufficient.

Agree with cjin.Those water towns around shanghai are very nice and quiet. Also Huangzhou (not far from Shanghai) is the absolute "do-not-miss" city.;)
