  • A bit bleak in winter. Difficult to find parking space during weekend.
  • 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 natural world where you can enjoy yourself for all day.
  • Beautiful place and extremely large. Conservation rooms are great. Don't go in winter.

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.
