  • Shanghai is a big city, people can walk around the park or the space to hit. The people's square in the Centre of the tourist, so it's hard to describe the location when lost or can in addition government establishments in the 1500s as a museum also looks like a great place to watch.

  • This is must visit attraction in Shanghai. People's Park is just next to the Square. The Shanghai Museum is also in this area. Easily reached by using the MRT system.

  • Offer a nice break from the city. Tons of people still but the park is big, green, well kept, well designed and relatively clean. Have area where you can feed pigeons. Perfect for stroll after museum visit.
  • Is a touristy área, and like all of them, it is busy. Must have seen once. But definetely better places to go to in Shanghai.
  • An amazing experience. So much to learn about the Chinese Culture and history. A must for all visiting this amazing city of Shanghai.
  • The good 1. Typical park at the heart of a city 2. lots of building views 3. place to escape the business of the city Cons 1. Tends to have lots of people 2. Lots of Grand Pa and Grand ma selling their child for marriage
  • A nice open space in the middle of Shanghai and a great meeting point. However if crowds aren't your thing you may be highly overwhelmed.
