June marks the start of summer in Shanghai and the average temperature increases swiftly to about 26 °C (79 °F). The so-called Plum Rain Season with abundant rain is from mid-June to early July, so the weather is changeable, a mixture of sunshine and showers.
Summer clothes such as T-shirts and shorts are advisable for June. Better bring a long-sleeved shirt or a thin coat, to be ready for the occasional cooler rainy days.
Relax at Shanghai Sculpture Park
Get close to the water to cool yourself down in June. Activities relating to water in Shanghai Sculpture Park include the Fuma Fuma Dome (an inflatable mound for kids to bounce around on), water zorbing, and boat cruises.
Besides, in the park, there are over forty large-scale sculptures by modern artists from various countries, and you can also enjoy natural scenery and landscape art there.
Shake Off the Heat in Happy Valley
Try the virtual canyon white-water-rafting at Happy Valley, which can shake off the heat during Shanghai’s sweltering summer. Lying on Sunshine Beach in the park, in pursuit of the healthy glow of a suntan, or playing beach with some friends to escape from a busy urban life, will help release your burdens.
