  • If you want a walk in nature, but I wouldn't say. Just, but still far from the Center. 20 yuan per person to visit all the attractions, but not worth the full ticket. Council to opt for to 7.

  • Awesome during summer. Great place for photos and to hang out. Recommended to visit during work days when there are less people around. However, if you are far don't come here only to visit this place.
  • Very crowded and poorly maintained. They have a nice Bonsai collection but definitely not worth the trip down. There are much better parks in Shanghai

  • Beautiful place and extremely large. Conservation rooms are great. Don't go in winter.
