Located along the southwest coast of Shanghai’s Chongming Island, Xisha Wetland Park is a protected wetland area along the banks of the Yangtze River. The park’s wooded paths wind through forest and marsh areas that turn an extravagant shade of green during the summer months. Xisha Wetland Park is set within the larger Chongming Island National Geopark, which was established in 2005 as part of a broader conservation effort by Chinese authorities. Due to its location far from central Shanghai, Xisha Wetland Park feels as if it were another world. Come enjoy the serenity and peace in this beautiful piece of protected wilderness.
