Shanghai Botanic Garden

Shanghai Botanic Garden Travel Guide


Located on Longwu Road, Shanghai Botanic Garden is founded at a site for tree cultivation in 1978, and now serves as one of the most tree planted areas in Shanghai.

Shanghai Botanic Garden covers 81 hectares (200 acres). There are more than 3000 species of plants peculiar to this region, including 108 sorts of rare plants or plants on the verge of extinction such as magnolias, peonies, azaleas, roses, osmanthus, ferns, bamboo, maples, and conifers. The orchid garden is considered the best in China. It has won prizes in the international flower shows in Canada and Holland several times.


In the botanical garden, many specialists and engineers are engaged in scientific research business, education, gardening, scene instruction, and the interior design business treating plants. Each summer, the garden stages a lotus flower exhibition, which has become popular among locals and tourists alike.

The Exhibition Greenhouse is a newly developed modern botanical greenhouse. It consists of two smaller greenhouses, one for tropical plants and the other for sand plants, the former focusing on the themes of gardens in which flowers of all seasons are displayed and tropical rain forests, producing a vivid tropical view with flowers competing for beauty, the latter, on the other hand, being a collection of the world´s strangely-shaped cactuses and rare succulent plants, vividly displaying the views of tropical plains, which, set off by deserts, camels, and the setting sun, makes people feel as if they were walking in a desert. Tourists can fully feel the mystery and changes of the world of plants. The Exhibition Greenhouse not only provides tourists with guiding services, but also with rooms for science popularization, thus enabling the tourists to acquire knowledge about relevant plants while experiencing the beautiful views.
