  • Really great and huge place to see! Better to take mini car to drive you from point to point and then sightsee everything. Greenhouses are amazing! There are so many species from around the World! Gar...  more »

  • 年初五约了朋友去看腊梅花,查了下决定去上海植物园,天气有点冷,加上过年,公园内游人很少,一进公园问了一下梅花在哪里?回答在3号门附近,就直奔过来,梅花还是很多的,品种也多,颜色也不同、白色、粉色、玫红色等,有的已经盛开、有的还含苞待放,拍了好多照片,不虚此行啊。  more »

  • 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
  • Badly maintained, falls in ruin slowly. On the bright side, very little people walking there, so if you look for place to rest, that's the one.
  • Beautiful place and extremely large. Conservation rooms are great. Don't go in winter.
  • Lovely
