    We were late for the cherry and plum blossoms. We went there yesterday (18 April). There was not a single fresh blossom on the trees. Wow! However, its rose garden was really beautiful.

    The Glass Museum is far out and a bit out of the way, so it takes an effort to get there. It’s a long walk from the Nearest Metro. The displays are awesome, although I left feeling that somehow there should have been more - especially older items, seeing that it is a museum. What was on display, was excellent. It’s covers quite a large area , so you need an hour or two to see everything. Some of the descriptions on the glass panels/cases are really difficult to read, with dark backgrounds, although I was pleasantly surprised to see so much written in English.
    I may need to go back on a week end, when hopefully there will be some artisans at work and workshops open. It all looks very interesting. Note that it’s half price, Tuesday to Friday.

    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 ...

    My son and I tried to visit this site from Baoyang Subway Station. I am sure that we found the correct park, but nobody seemed to understand what we were looking for. There were many sections of the park under repair, and high zinc fences obscured our view. I hope that someone can tell us where we went wrong, or if the fort is undergoing repairs. The name of the park was "civilised park".

    For few weeks in April the Sakura flowers are blossoming and the most famous place is Gucun Park.

    Beautiful thing for family activity for a picnic or just visit to picture the trees. There is about 500 plus other people with the same idea.

    There are tents, police, cars, a wheel and hawkers that will also be in the park during holidays like today.

    You can reach the park by metro or taxi, if you do not like people pushing suggestion is taxi.

    If you have change take a day when everyone is at work to visit, because the park is beautiful and relaxing.

    Now you do not need to stand in line, but Instead scanning a QR code to pay and show it to the quarts- love the technology.

    I rode around Hengsha: a lovely clean place, a few things to see - i actually didn't get to the wetlands. I caught a passenger ferry from Wusong (bicycles allowed if simply packed up and in a large bag, and there are not many of you in the group - they will be carried outside on the deck - there is no storage space - the ferry is like a bus - bicycle carriage is at the mercy of the staff).

    There is little traffic on Hengsh, nice roads for cycling, the long pier at the southeast corner is now closed to traffic.

    There are bikes to hire on the left as you exit the port. Its doable in one day if you take the first ferry over (about 8 am) and the last one back (about 4 pm)

    This new mall is very big. I went there a couple of times before, and I just didn't have the time and strength to walk from one side to another (yes, it is that large). Alongside with being a large mall, it is also rather empty. There is a variety of shops there, from food to clothing to bags. But overall, it is just your average shanghai mall.

    The environment there is nice. You can exercise there. It does not have many recreation facilities. You can buy food and drinks there. Entrance tickets are not required.

    We tried to visit this museum a few years ago, and were disappointed when it was closed due to improvements for the 70th anniversary of the end of WW2 .We took the subway Line 3 (Yellow Line) to Youyi Road, and then took a taxi to the museum. The museum is difficult to find, so it may be best to take a taxi from the subway station.There were a few exhibits in the park outside the museum, including peace doves, peace bell, memorial park and a few sculptures. It may be best to visit the external displays firstly before going into the museum.

    The museum has free entry, but tickets are required from the ticket office. Remember to take passports as identification will be requested. There are quite a few halls dedicated to varying themes, but the central theme is the battle of Shanghai. The Baoshan area saw the heaviest fighting, and we had visited the nearby martyrs memorial on our previous visit.This was the first real stand by the Chinese against the Japanese, and it resulted in an estimated 300,000 casualties for the Chinese and an estimated 40,000 for the Japanese. This statistic shows the great loss of life on the Chinese side, which was a feature of the war against Japan. The Japanese marched onto Nanjing after the Shanghai Battle.

    The museum also has exhibits on the atrocities carried out by the Japanese, including mass graves, massacres, biological weapons and the use of Chinese women for comfort. The themes in the museum are repeated throughout other military museums in China.The exhibits were well presented, but there was not as much english translation as was expected.We were disappointed at not being able to use the elevator in the Pagoda, as in the old museum the view of the battlefield areas from the tower was one of the main parts of the tour. I hope that the Pagoda section will be reopened soon.

    We know Spin since 18 years, when they still were located in downtown Shanghai. The shop has moved and is now in a new location North of the city center - and definitely worth a visit !

    The Spin ceramics are a piece of art, but still practcal for daily use. The design combines modern and traditional influences from China and Japan, in an absolutely unique style.

    Staff is very friendly and supportive, with excellent English spoken. Highly recommended if you are looking for some high end ceramics, or a special memory of Shanghai.
