    Enjoyed my time alone just wandering around. I listened to my own music but you could probably find someone playing an instrument somewhere

    When we went, much of the south gate and area around east gate was under heavy construction, so we entered via the west gate. You need a ticket but there's no charge, and a health code. From there, the steps take you straight up to the pagoda, where there is also a small shop selling drinks and tea eggs. More steps take you up to the observatory/museum and the basilica was past it. Probably takes 30min for that entire walk, all paved and not super steep. The basilica was closed for repairs, from the sign it looked to have been closed for the last six months.

    We wandered out the east gate via a very nice path through a bamboo forest. I was disappointed to not see any wild animals at all, and everywhere the ground and plant leaves were covered in dust. It was totally empty but with the huge parking lots, you can tell it gets very crowded. Likely because it was winter, we didn't see many food vendors at all.

    I'd allocate maybe 2-3hrs to see all the mountain parks in the area. Theres a ton of other things to do in sheshan though, including happy valley amusement park, smurf land, visiting the quarry hotel, golf. There is a water park too but closed in off season.

    Good place to spend 1-2 relaxing hours - away from the city center. The walking lanes are well paved and the visit was even free of charge when we visited. The wildlife to spot and observe however is rather limited (maybe we went the wrong time) - however you can see hundreds of cargo boats in the distance heading for the Wusong River. The new cruiseliner terminal which is located pretty much at the end of the park is another interesting spot to see ...

    It's not that easy to get transport to the park and getting back is worse, but it's well worth the effort. The park is quiet and peaceful with great views out over the Huangpu and Yangtze rivers. Plenty of space to walk about and enjoy some fresh air and space.

    This is probably one of the more NOT value for money you can find. Almost nothing to offer but a few junk yards and so called attractive that has absolutely no theme and some poorly maintained. Coming here is absolute waste of time and money
