Friday morning, in this week of vacation, we went with my girlfriend Gongqing Sengling Gong Yuan Shanghai, forest park located northwest of Shanghai by Fudan.

To get there you can among other things:

or take the tourist bus number 8 from Shanghai Stadium / Xujiahui to the park entrance.
either take the subway line 3 to Jiangwan Town (the station near the dorm Fudan) and take a taxi which will cost you about 25 RMB to the entrance of the park.

The entrance to the park cost us 12 RMB per person (it’s cheaper for children). The mass of greenery and nature is striking and it is a pleasure to find this green lung in Shanghai. There are a lot of people because of the “Golden Week” (holiday week) but the place is friendly and practical.

First goal: eat before the barbecue are all under attack. We therefore follow the signs and arrive about 10 minutes from the entrance to a rope bridge and board with access costs 1 RMB per person. We cross the counter and decide to rent a mini shelter (4 seats) + BBQ 45 RMB. It is also possible to just buy a barbecue for 15 RMB at the same place and find a corner in an enclosure reserved for this purpose but because the world and the pile of garbage produced by all these people gave ca not want.

Arriving at the shelter # 13, it is squatted by the occupants of the enclosure 14, I use my Chinese diplomat to make them understand that we would like to integrate the shelter we have to pay. No pitfalls, they get up and leave us up while leaving a pile of garbage. I therefore ask the janitor who passed us rehabilitate the place what he does with speed and efficiency unmatched. We congratulate him and give him 10 kwai for services rendered (I am not tip in China but when you see so much good will it gives desire to encourage). The ignition will fire with a group of Chinese neighbors who give us fire and we recommend waiting 20 minutes to start cooking. I take this opportunity to concoct beef skewers Qingdao (crossing Charolais beef and Chinese) and we go to cook lamb kebabs “little sheep” that my girlfriend had bought. A super friendly meal that really changes the atmosphere.
