People's park is a very nice space, I visited Saturday around midday and whilst it was popular I wouldn't say it was crowded. Lots of walkways under trees, open areas of planting and water features etc.. With it being Saturday I also got to experience...More

Beautiful park in the middle of the city. The eclectic style of the buildings in and around the park (Shanghai Museum, Contemporary Art Museum) are an interesting contrast to the park itself. In the morning you might even catch a group of folks practicing Tai...More

A regular square. Not much going on. Not specially beautiful. Wouldn't advise going there unless you have nothing else to do. Really.

People's square is not really an attraction. Its simply a park surrounded by shops and restaurants. I do not really understand why so many people are drawn here.

People’s Square
People’s Square brings with it all the excitement you
would expect from the town square of one of the
biggest cities in the world. The area around People’s
Square and People’s Park is always a abuzz with
activity. Oceans of local and foreign tourists flow
in and out of the area every day to see grand museums,
go shopping and eat at some of Shanghai’s most storied
food centers. Shanghai residents, meanwhile, live and
