It's a bit of a journey out to Nanxiang on line 11 but well worth it. The crowds are quite small and it's easy to find peace and quiet in these gardens. They are well maintained with lots of different views and features.

This is a huge garden and you could spend about 1 1/2 hours here depending on how you go about it. Good for pictures and getting away from the busyness of the town if you want.

It is a nice garden, but nothing really exceptional to justify the long metro ride there. Took me 45 minutes from Xujiahui to Nanxiang on line 11. There is a very good playground inside for kids. To make it right, you should visit this garden...More
