    Being a European citizen I found it very interesting to take a run in this park during the weekend. It's interesting to see how the locals spend a lot of weekend time in the park. Kids are playing, adults walk the trails and some people fishing. Also, it is a nice park. I can really recommend a visit here!

    This park is lovely. It's clean and green. Lots of nooks, corners and trails to explore. It's a great recreational space for everyone living in the surrounding area.

    門票免費,比較人性化。公園花草樹木很多,打理得很好,綠樹成蔭,繁花似錦,走在小徑,跨過小橋,看著人工湖面倒影的白雲和船影,心境也特別舒暢。 早上,附件等居民都來鍛煉身體,男的比較少,大媽比較多,充滿生活氣息。

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
