Nothing quite compliments bright flowers and freshly cut grass thanks a blue sunny sky. The botanical gardens isn’t the easiest of places to travel to in Shanghai (take line 3 to Shillong Road), so I would only say it is worth a visit on beautiful...More

It’s spring and flowers are all blooming. Liked it that trees and flowers are all labelled. The map of the garden can be found at the back of the ticket.

There is NOTHING to see at this place. It is far from everything, old and not well maintained. Don't bother going

We're not particularly interested in horticulture so didn't bother with the pavilions and greenhouses. Had a good walk round and enjoyed what we saw. You can hire a boat for a ride and there's a scruffy children's play area. I should think it looks great...More

Enjoyed this oasis in Shanghai. Very clean and well maintained. I visited on a Thursday afternoon and was alone, except for the retirees playing their instruments. It was raining; the rain might have contributed to the emptiness. The Maple leaves were just starting to turn.

The best pink blooms are in early Spring April - May (cherry, peach, peony, tulip, etc.). Roses should still look great to the end of June.
