Sheshan is a small hill in the songjiang district of shanghai with a church and short board walk on top. While the hill is a little underwhelming there is plenty to do in the area including a botanical garden, happy valley amusement park and Thames town. So definitely make a day of visiting this area but if you only come... More

Recommend visiting the hill top astronomic museum (entrance 12 RMB) too as... More

If you live in Shanghai, have a free weekend with nothing to do, and the weather is favourable, a brisk walk up Sheshan is a nice morning activity for you. An hour's drive from the city, I got to the North Entrance just before opening time on a Sunday (8 am). Entrance is free - you need to pick up... More

The view on the top of this mountain is very good except for the many day's were the air pollution is very high, there is litter everywhere you go, people just leave there bottles on the floor even if there is a bin beside them. There used to be an amazing bamboo made park which had tons of obstacle courses... More

Bored with all this mass of people and noisy environment? understand. If you think u can escape from it... No way. This unique hill is a landmark, it is a short exercise to climb it on rather well maintained walkways. On top of is there is a neogothic church, closed, for renovation. Maybe. The view is nice. But ... Your... More

Well, in Shanghai you are always happy to be in the greens, no? Here a nice forrest is an exception, in Europe we are used to it. A bit artificial for my taste, but green is green!

It is a lovely walk up Sheshan. Halfway up, you can detour through a quiet bamboo forest, along a boardwalk. The cathedral is beautiful and the view from the top spectacular. See below in the valley the villas of the rich and beautiful... ;-)

Can be crowded and can be commercial, but get walking away from all that and just enjoy the quieter areas where no one else goes. Try also Tianma Hill, not far away.
