Explore Shanghai's Botanical Gardens
In spring, cherry, peach and plum trees in the Shanghai Arboretum’s rose garden come into full bloom. With an area of over 200 acres, this is a good place and big enough for escaping from the hustle and bustle.
Despite its vastness, bees and birds are everywhere, sucking the honey blossoms, presenting a lively and passionate picture to visitors.
Go Out for a Picnic
In May, the blooms in Shanghai attract crowds to go out for a picnic in Century Park and Sheshan Mountain, where you can grab friends to join you in smelling the fragrant flowers and snapping a quick flower selfie together.
See the Animals at Shanghai Zoo
As the second largest zoo and one of the ten best ecological zoos in China, Shanghai Zoo is home to more than 6,000 animals, including about 620 species. Among all the animals, pandas are the most popular and many tourists travel far and wide just to watch them. The plants and gardens in the park provide you with shade to rest, when you feel tired.
