    NOt a bad experience. Lots of rides (more than Disneyland - or so it seems) Line for rides only take minutes so you can have a full day of entertainment

    This was our third visit to these beautiful and relaxing gardens. Lots of different botanically themed areas, extensive parkland and lakes, a converted quarry and so on, which absorb the crowds well. Locals take their tents and picnics for the day. Quieter areas on the Western and Eastern edges. Basic canteen in the entrance hall, snacks available in the gardens, including delicious ice-cream. At least an hour from the city centre by car, also 15 mins taxi ride to subway line 9, make a day of the area and visit either Sheshan or Tianmashan nearby, the latter Shanghai’s highest point at around 100m above sea-level.

    It was sooooooo far away for us to go from Pudong but we tried and succeeded. 1.5 hours on metro and another half hour bus ride. We also found out that we had to stop at Zuibaichi metro station Line 9 ( NOT at Songjiang Xincheng - because the bus there is no more working the route). So we stopped at Zuibaichi metro station and took Bus No. 6. Stopped at Beisong Highway at Chedunzhen. The film park is another 5 min walk to the front on your right.
    Entrance fee was 80 Yuan. Huge park. Highlight for us was we managed to catch a movie shoot in progress - a fighting scene.
    Park is filled with famous buildings and areas around Shanghai. Nanjing Road in the 1930s was spectacular. Good park to walk around and take lots of photos. Cafes are around for drinks n food.
    It was not crowded when we were there last weekend so we liked it.

    It worthwhile to visit if you’re in Shanghai for longer than a week. You’ll have to spend more than one and half hours to travel to the place. As of November 2023 the best way to get there is to get on to Metro Line 9 and then get out at Songiang University Town station and then from outside the station on Tram 2 which takes you there. The Taxi can also get you from that station there but will probably take as much time and will be much more expensive. I paid 50 Yuen.

    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.

    It is really disappointing to climb up that hill and find the church closed. That’s what happened. The not so smart people here at TA refuse to publish this notification for some reason, so this is the second try, as I would have appreciated if someone would have told me.

    one of the few 'dogs welcome' places in Shanghai. Our Labrador seems to love it here, if you walk the left hand side first it is always less busy and good for dogs to have a good sniff about before going to the more busy other side nearer the lake with the boats and kids stuff. Good in cooler months/winter too.

    Public holiday today (Dragon Boat Festival) yet the park was very quiet. Easy to get to on Subway Line 9 - the station is Zuibaichi Park. Allow 2-3 hours as the park occupies 5 hectares. Great bonsai specimens and glimpses of the original gate from the Song dynasty while the other buildings are Ming and Qing. Tickets 12Rmb.

    You can walk on the grass, and the grass is beautiful, huge space, few people however it's the weekend of the Dragon Boat Festival. Great place to do picnic under the trees.
    Entrance fee 100, for children 50, under 0.8 meter free. You can hire a boat and there is a white sand beach. You can even go into the water a couple of meters into the water, hahaha, unusual.

    I visited this place and loved it. There is a calmness surrounding this area. It feels peaceful and serene. Though you are not allowed to climb up the steps, it is nice to behold it's beauty. Also, the park it is in is gorgeous with many old trees and all kinds of flowers. This is a nice place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the busy city life.

    The building is in good condition and the devices are also good; the museum has everything explained with three languages (Chinese, English and French) and you can perceive the original mood

    Tianma mountain is a small, but steep sided hill, about 10km west of Dongjing station, and can be reached via bus no 9 from the station. It is home to Huzhu pagoda.

    A really nice area and not too busy. Not all that much to see but the park is also connected with the other side so you can combine both Sheshan parks in a morning.
