    A great place to relax. In the year 1986, the then Mayor of Shanghai and the future General Secretary Jiang Zemin planted a couple of trees, after which the place was turned into a park by opening it to the public. The Park is very picturesque, it stretches along the banks of the Huangpu River. There are rides, specially equipped places for barbecue, lakes, stables. In General, the location is excellent, the truth is not close, on the outskirts of the city.

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.
