The residential and commercial areas around the beautiful grounds of Zhongshan Park have never been considered particularly fashionable by a majority of Shanghai’s foreign residents, but plenty of expats do choose to live here. The park itself is a huge draw, providing a pocket of serenity in the middle of the metropolis. The area has its share of trendy shops with wares that can’t be found elsewhere, delicious restaurants with food ranging from fancy to affordable, and great hidden bars. Rents are also cheaper here than in other neighborhoods with the same conveniences. Aside from the obvious attractions, with its neighborhood fix-anything shops and pop-up street stalls that sell anything you need, you’ll never sacrifice Western comforts.
As others have written, this place has recently moved. Google Maps had it listed under its old location (in the basement of some apartment complex) but that's not right anymore. The address listed here is correct.
No photos allowed in the museum, sadly, but it's well worth a visit. The posters all have translations of the captions into English (some...
Nice park for the family, visit with my small children and wife, rent 2 boats and they have fun drive them, big lake and channels to navigate.
If you like to hike, a lot of paved pats with benches alone the routes ( most of them were taken) some snacks stands all over the place.
Will take some time to...
Visited this small museum on a rainy day. Admission is free. They have couple of very old fire engines inside (from England). I had no clue Shanghai used to have foreign volunteer firemen as well. Anyway, some old equipment and many pictures are interesting. This place is likely better fit for men or boys.

A Michelin place restaurant that serves the best tongpo meat as well as best sweet and sour fish in China. Service was excellent and the environment was cosy and nice. We were entertained by an accomplished pianist who accommodated a few request numbers from us.
We also had fried shrimps with a wasabi like sauce which was excellent.
We stayed for one night in early January, location was good, near to Zhongshan park MRT station. This Zhongshan station is same line with Pudong airport and Hongqiao line, so very super easy to reach airport. We got room with view to Zhongshan park area. We arrived at this hotel around 8 am, and they give us early checkin, wow...
Overall we enjoyed our stay. The Pentahotel staff are very nice, breakfast is really good with lots of options. The Wi-fi is okay but you often have to keep re-registering which is annoying. There is a pool table and PlayStation in the lobby and a decent bar. Our rooms were a mixed bag. Large bed, good air con, and nice...

I stayed one night in a Premium King room on the 45th floor of this hotel.
Hotel location: I chose this hotel because it is strategically only about 1 minute walk to Exit 2 of Zhongshan Park station entrance for the MTR yellow Line 3, indigo Line 4 and the green Line 2 (which connects to Hongqiao Railway Station, Hongqiao...
