Shanghai Botanical Gardens
About this place
Located in the southern reaches of Xuhui district, Shanghai botanical gardens is tucked away from the main strips of the city. For those in desperate need of refuge from the noise and bustling pace of Shanghai, the botanical gardens guarantee a spot where visitors can enjoy much needed peace and quiet.
15RMB is the entrance fee to the park, but for 40RMB an "all-access ticket" makes all areas available including the “Tropicanium” conservatory. Situated in the northeast section of the park, this giant greenhouse is an authentic taste of the tropics, complete with mosquitoes! The greenhouse’s interior is so warm that a rather impromptu and rapid stripping off of clothing often takes place just inside the entrance, much to the amusement of the Chinese staff.
For true tranquility, find Penjing Garden which offers a place to perch, to reflect, or to snooze whilst enjoying the Bonsai trees.
