The city has a plethora of parks from sedate gardens and wildlife enclosures to wild rides at thrilling theme parks.

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy some of Shanghai’s outdoor attractions. And for those looking for a diversion from the long lines and hundreds of thousands of people at the Expo 2010 Shanghai, the city’s water parks, amusement parks, botanical gardens, zoos and other parks are ideal attractions. Despite the heat, there are countless adventures waiting to be discovered in Shanghai. Here are some of the best.

1. Happy Valley

Happy Valley, built in 2009, is a new amusement park famous for its exciting and breathtaking facilities that integrate high-end technology. With more than 100 attractions scattered throughout seven different themed areas, the park is a wonderful destination for those looking for adventure. A trip to Happy Valley is not complete without a ride on the wooden roller coaster – it’s said to be the most thrilling in town.

2. Dino Beach

As the only water park in the city, Dino Beach should be on the top of any summer to-do list. The water park is usually full of cheerful young people. The park has many water slides, but the two most-recommended attractions are the large wave pool, said to be the biggest in Asia, and a very relaxing flowing river that circles the entire park. Food and drinks can’t be brought into the park, so be sure to bring extra money. Most importantly, don’t forget to bring sunscreen. Visitors can also go at night, when there are shorter lines and no hot sun. Floating down the lazy river in an inner tube will be a soothing way to view a starry night.

And for the adventure seeker, there are many thrill rides, including the Mega Drop, Pirate Boat and a steel roller coaster.

More trains to Lhasa in time for summer demand

On July 5, 2010, in Lhasa, Tours, Transportation, Travel Info, by Jack Li

Travel agents in Shanghai have hailed the increase in the frequency of direct trains between Shanghai and Lhasa as demand for tours to the Tibet Autonomous Region increases.

Travel agents in Shanghai have hailed the increase in the frequency of direct trains between Shanghai and Lhasa as demand for tours to the Tibet Autonomous Region increases.

From today, there will be a train departing at 8 pm daily for Lhasa from Shanghai Railway Station, arriving two days later. Previously, there was one train every two days. The most expensive berth costs around 1,400 yuan ($209), and the cheapest seat 406 yuan ($60).

Summer is the best season for visiting Tibet, according to an agent surnamed Liu from Shanghai Travel Agency, and the newly-added trains could bring a 20 to 30 percent hike in the number of Tibet package tours his agency sells.

“Most of our customers choose to take the train to Tibet not only because it’s cheaper than flying, but also as a way to gradually adapt to the higher altitude,” Liu said. “The scenery along the route is also very beautiful.”

Travel agencies in Shanghai offer tours from six to 12 days in length, at prices of up to almost 6,000 yuan ($896).

According to information on the Lhasa Railway Station website, trains from Shanghai to Lhasa in the next two weeks are fully booked.

The 40 hotels in Tibet listed on Chinese travel booking website Ctrip.com have taken 32 percent more bookings in the second half of June than during the same period last year, according to statistics provided by Ctrip.com.

Yu Nengda, an events manager from Hunan, went to Tibet in 2008 without using a travel agency, as he believed the package tours would not be a good option.

“I made many enquiries with agencies, but I did not think their itineraries were interesting,” said Yu. “Tibet is more about the culture, which is rooted not only in the palaces and temples, but also in the lives of local people. However, I didn’t see any packages that would allow me to spend time with locals,” Yu said.

Yu added that he lived in a Tibetan house during his travels, and that his hosts had been very kind and willing to tell him many things about their culture.

However, Zhang Wu’an, a spokesman from Spring International Travel Agency, told the Global Times that agencies can not offer such tours so easily.

“If there were a misunderstanding between our customers and locals because of their cultural differences, it could be a very serious headache for our travel agency,” Zhang said.
